Just delicious! This is so refreshing. I doubled the recipe and put it into the blender in batches. I added 2 packets artifical sweetner. It was so easy and quick, perfect on a hot day! Beats the heck out of those heavy drinks you buy! Thanks for sharing!

This was great. I had a bunch of melons in my garden, so I made your recipe first. Awesome. Then I did a new batch- this time with half yellow watermellon, and half cantaloupe. I also added 2 tbsp. of honey and used ginger ale. Incredible!

A couple of weeks ago I started to make this and didn't get to it. The watermelon sat in the freezer and I told everyone not to touch the can of Diet Sprite (something we don't have around much.)! I had forgotten about it until my daughter said "You better use that Sprite because it's getting too tempting!" Moral of the story: Watermelon is fine the freezer for a couple of weeks and I wish I had done this sooner because it was a huge hit! Everyone loved it! Thanks so much!!

Oh my, this was so good. I made this today when my friend stopped by. I had this watermelon 1/2 sitting in the fridge and I need the room for my party this weekend and I saw your recipe and that was that!! Very good, I used vanilla soda because thats all I had. Now I have a new refreshing recipe and all that needed room in my fridge!!!

This is divine. It has the freshest taste, like pure fruit. What a great way to keep from wasting watermelon...freeze it, and use it later! I've made this several times; it's a keeper. (Last night DH put gin in his!)

Hmmm... it was.... interesting and a bit odd. That's the only way I can really describe it. I drank the whole glass but still couldn't figure out if I actually liked it or not. I wonder if I'd like it better with gingerale instead of the diet sierra mist. Oh, and there's no way my blender would puree frozen watermelon without a good amount of liquid so I added the soda early on to loosten the mixture enough to blend it. Maybe the watermelon should have been only partially frozen to begin with. I might have to tinker with this one a bit but I like the idea of it.

This was tasty in the end but I had a ton of problems with it. There was so little liquid at first that I could not get the blender to blend it. I ended up omitting the ice and adding the soda at the beginning so there would be enough liquid for the drink to actually blend. I also thought it was way too little for 4 servings. That said, I thought it was tasty.

So refreshing on a hot summer day. I made this for my family the other night after doing yard work and it hit the spot. We really liked the watermelon with the lime. Thank you for sharing with us, its delicious.
