Florida Watermelon Juice
Watermelon is a summer staple; we eat it as is, in desserts, in salads, on ice pops, fruit drinks, and even margaritas! But did you know you can make watermelon juice? It is so simple and doesn't require much. The trick is to choose a sweet watermelon, and that has ripened naturally in the soil — no need to add water nor sugar.
- 4 cups watermelon cut in chunks
Clean the watermelon with soapy water and cut. Make sure to use a seedless watermelon.
Use a sharp knife and cut in half. As an alternative you can use a special tool for cutting watermelons instead of a knife.
Cut the watermelon in chunks and measure four cups.
Add the watermelon chunks to the blender and blend on high until getting a smooth juice.
Pour the juice into a bottle or a pitcher and refrigerate.
- Make sure to serve the juice chilled.
- Add a few drops of lime juice for a citrus note.
- Keep the juice in refrigeration.
