How to make Watermelon Juice?
It really is as easy as scooping out the watermelon and blending it for less than a minute!
Watermelon is sweet by itself, so all I do is just blend, sieve (optional), and drink. However, there are times I like to add a hint of ginger, mint, and lemon to even make it come a little more alive! but it’s very easy to go overboard with all these add-ins if care is not taken considering the fact that watermelon is very mild tasting.
How long to make Watermelon Juice?
You can have fresh Watermelon Juice in only 10 minutes!
Does Watermelon have health benefits?
Yes, it does! Aside from being an excellent hydrator (about 90% water), it is a good source of vitamin A, C, and potassium and often doesn’t need any sweetener!
How long does watermelon juice last in the fridge?
Up to four days, though you will have to stir after it sits for a while because the juice will separate!
How to know if a watermelon is ripe?
The key to a tasty Watermelon Juice is a ripe watermelon, and you can know which ones will be juicier and sweeter before opening them up!
It might go against visual aesthetic, but melons with a yellow spot where they’re sitting are ripe—they should also sound more hollow when tapped and they should be heavy!
- Strain the juice before serving for less of a pulpy texture
- To make it an adult beverage, add a shot of tequila or white rum
- As with most natural juices, watermelon juice will separate after some time. Simply stir to combine each time you are ready to drink.
Other refreshing drinks that will satisfy your thirst:
- Pitcher or jars
- 1 medium sweet watermelon
- 1 tbsp lemon juice optional
- Cut the watermelon in half and peel off the rind. Then cut into big chunks.
- Put the watermelon chunks inside the blender and blend until becomes totally pulverized about 1 minute.
- If you want it pulpy, you can serve immediately. If otherwise, place a strainer over a bowl and pour the juice through the strainer.
- Variations – blend about half of an inch of ginger with watermelon, stir in the juice of one lemon or squeeze some mint leaves to release the oils, throw it inside the juice, and mix.
- Pour inside a glass with ice and enjoy.
