Let’s make watermelon juice! It’s refreshing, healthy and hydrating!
Homemade watermelon juice is the perfect summer drink! It’s so refreshing, hydrating and just so simple to make. It’s a great save if a watermelon is mealy or past it’s prime too. I like to add lime but that’s optional. I also love to add some club soda for a little fizz!
Have you ever had the watermelon water you can buy in stores? Spelled like WTRMLN WTR. Well this is basically that, but way fresher and better. I love watermelon and during the summer months I like to have this watermelon juice around all the time. It just cuts through the heat in a way that regular water doesn’t.
Ingredients for homemade watermelon juice
- Lime: optional
That’s really all you need to make watermelon juice. It’s that simple! Watermelon is already well, watery. It contains plenty of liquid and can go straight into the blender without any added water.
Let’s make it!
Cut watermelon into cubes, then blend until fully liquified.
Next strain out the pulp for pulp-free watermelon juice. Use the back of a spoon to get all of the liquid through the strainer quickly.
Pour the watermelon juice into jars or whatever container you want to use!
Ended up with too much watermelon juice?
Make watermelon ice cubes
The juice can also be poured into an ice cube tray for watermelon ice cubes! You can put these in your watermelon juice for extra water melon flavor or just straight into water for a little flavor.
