Recipe: Watermelon Sweet Tea

photo credit: IMPROV Kitchen

Watermelon is one of our favorite summer fruits. Here’s a quick and easy iced tea recipe from IMPROV Kitchen that’s oh-so-good and super refreshing!

Watermelon Sweet Tea

2 c. cubed seedless watermelon
2 c. brewed iced tea
4 T. agave nectar

In a blender, combine ingredients and puree until combined. Pour mixture through a fine mesh sieve. Pour over ice, sip, enjoy!

Get creative! Morgan, the author of the IMPROV Kitchen blog has these great suggestions for variations of this recipe:

  • Freeze the watermelon first to make this into a slushy.
  • Try it with cantaloupe and a black or white tea.
  • Use your sweetener of choice; honey, simple syrup (1 c. sugar + 1 c. water heated up until dissolved), artificial sweetener and super fine sugar will work too! Vary the level depending on how sweet you like your tea.
  • Add some vodka or light rum for a sweet summertime cocktail.
