Simple Watermelon Punch for Kids

Kids love to be treated like royalty, too, once in a while! This watermelon punch is a great way to use the leftover of this gigantic fruit and quench your whole family’s thirst this summer.

Watermelon is such a big fruit, often hard to finish, so the best way to use its leftovers would be to transform it into a delicious pink juice! This watermelon punch recipe contains some extra electrolytes to make it ultra thirst-quenching with the help of a bit of coconut water, a citrusy freshness with the lime juice and a secret pinch of salt to make it all stand out!

The colour will appeal to every kid! The idea was to make the kids have their mocktail and highlight it with gummies. Why not, since the juice itself doesn’t contain any added sugar? Did you make too much? Freeze the rest!

Fruit Bar Idea

Do you have a kid’s birthday to prepare in the heat of the summer? Make the kids a fruit bar and make them decorate their drinks. Let them choose their own paper straws, fruits, and decorations for their mocktail! Don’t forget the pre-made gummy bears on a stick; these are a guaranteed hit!

Watermelon Health Benefits

Watermelon is filled with water, 92% of it actually; no wonder it’s called ‘water’melon, making it the perfect hydrating fruit! Plus, it’s filled with vitamins C and A, magnesium, potassium and much more.  Theoretically, the whole fruit is eatable, its seeds and skin included, but very few venture that way. Nowadays, watermelons are engineered to be seedless and much easier to eat.

How to choose the perfect watermelon?

If you want to choose the sweetest and juiciest watermelon, always look out for a big yellowish spot on your green watermelon. This means perfection!

Freeze for 30 minutes your watermelon cubes before blending it. This way you’ll get a guaranteed brain freeze!

Why add salt?

Because salt will bind the whole flavour together, a simple pinch goes a long way!

    This is such a good way to use up watermelon. Sometimes I don’t always want to bite into a slice and it juices up so nicely. A great way to stay hydrated in the heat of summer.

Plus, it’s a fantastic way to involve kids in the kitchen and make them feel like little royalty with their own special drink.
