Watermelon Juice Recipe
What does summer mean to you - summer sports games, traveling, reading? If you want to make something summer refreshing that is unusual and easy, make watermelon juice.
A popular offering in Brazil along beaches, watermelon juice is an easy and fun way to enjoy a naturally-sweet refreshing summer drink.
To make, remove the watermelon pulp in easy to manage sizes. I use a melon baller to core my watermelons, that gives me the option to easily add other fruits for a quick fruit salad as well as make watermelon juice.
Don’t forget to taste test your watermelon, you want something that has a nice flavor to it and you can better decide what else to add.
Once cored, place the watermelon pieces in a blender. If your watermelon is too sweet, add a dash of lemon juice.
If you like to eat your watermelon with salt, add a dash of salt.
If you want a cold watermelon juice, add ice.
The shredded watermelon pulp will rise to the top but not have any body to it. It will give the watermelon juice drink a frothy top and a clear juice bottom.
To serve, I add a spring of fresh spearmint from my garden. You can also use other herbs to taste; peppermint and lemon balm would also work.
Enjoy and happy summer!
