So refreshing!

I LOVE Watermelon season, don’t you?! It’s almost as if there is nothing more refreshing and juicier than a slice of the amazing fruit – wouldn’t you agree?

Well, my dad is known for his “concoctions in the kitchen”, and one he is best known for is his Watermelon Juice. It’s a family favorite drink, and I will be sharing it with you today.

I promise you won’t be disappointed if you try it! It does include some strawberries, but if those aren’t your favorite, you can always substitute for another berry or even omit all berries and up the watermelon.

How to Make Watermelon Juice

To start off, cut your watermelon into quarters. Spoon one quarter of the watermelon into your blender. Cut the tops off of 4 strawberries and add to your blender. Mix well.

Add remaining ingredients to blender (sugar, water, and ice). Blend well. This makes two very large glasses of juice.

A whole watermelon will make about 8-12 servings, but you will have to add and mix these ingredients each time so it can all fit in your blender.

How do you choose a good watermelon? Watermelons should have a field spot on one side of them where it was resting on the ground. It will be yellowy looking. The melon should also sound hollow when you tap it with your knuckles. Another way to check is if it has dull-looking skin. The shiny looking ones will typically be unripe. Or check our post here.

Can I use frozen strawberries instead of fresh ones? Yes you can. This will give it more of a slushy texture instead of a juice-like one.

Can it be made with seeds? The best watermelon to use for this recipe is a seedless one. Do not consume the black seeds.

Can watermelon juice be frozen? You should freeze watermelon juice in a container with a lid, while leaving some space in it so it can expand. It will be fine in the freezer for 30-60 days. If you don’t end up freezing it will last in the fridge for up to 3 days.

Health Benefits

Can watermelon juice be used for weight loss? Skin care? Watermelon helps with weight loss because it is made of mainly water, so while it may be filling it doesn’t have as many calories as other juices.

The high water contain hydrates the skin and the vitamins found in the melon strengthens your hair follicles and reduces the appearance of aging.

What are the health benefits? Watermelons are high in Vitamin A and C as well as potassium and B6 vitamins. It also contains citrulline which is an amino acid that relaxes muscles and can combat stress and high blood pressure.

If you’re looking to make this juice even healthier, you can also substitute it for SPLENDA Naturals which is a stevia-based sweetener.
