Watermelon juice

Watermelons have become synonymous with summer and picnics, and for good reason. Their refreshing quality and sweet taste help to combat the heat and also provide a guilt-free, low maintenance dessert for kids and adults alike to enjoy.

Watermelon juice couldn’t be easier to extract. You don’t need a fancy juicer, just a blender. Scoop the watermelon into the blender, blend for about thirty seconds, and you have made watermelon juice.

Watermelon juice is good for you. It’s high in vitamin A, vitamin C and potassium. It’s about 92% water, so it’s plenty hydrating, too.  To make it even healthier I add lemon juice and pineapple.

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups diced seedless watermelon
  • 2 cups water
  • juice from 1/2 lemon
  • 1 cup diced pineapple

Directions:

Add everything in a blender and blend it till it is smooth. Keep it in he fridge. Before serve it, mix it very well. Enjoy!

  1. A cafe near where I used to live did a really nice blended icy watermelon and mint drink – was a great hangover cure along with a big fry up breakky.

  2. I love making watermelon ice pops for the children, just pure watermelon puréed and frozen into Popsicle moules, they eat them like candy, they think they are a real summer treat, indeed they are, but they also happen to be super healthy!

  3. You could also put this watermelon juice into ice lolly moulds and put them in the freezer. Nice recipe 🙂

  4. Hi, thank you for stopping by to visit and the “like”. You are an amazingly talented photographer, and your pictures are an inspiration for me to eat healthy. I also really liked what you wrote here: “I felt down and disappointed and it felt so wrong. I am not this person, feeling sorry for myself or feeling down, so I took my camera and a bunch of cherries and went outside.” A great reminder to me that I am NOT myself when I feel down, and to go make a bowl of cherries out of life!

  5. Tried this today, added a little less water and doubled the lemon juice as I added no pineapple as I don’t like the taste and it was refreshing and lovely on a hot day here in Italy

  6. “My kIngdom for a pint of watermelon juice!” I think that this was the original line of Shakespeare’s Richard the III that for some unknown reasons was changed to: “My kingdom for a horse!” I can’t blame him for having said it because it looks really delicious and refreshing.
