I’ve tried quite a few fruit juices and refreshing beverages, but this one has to be one of my favorite summer drinks of all times.

Ingredients For the Watermelon Juice Recipe

To make this simple watermelon juice, here’s all you’ll need.

Watermelon Juice Ingredients

Watermelon: You’ll need fresh watermelon chunks for this recipe. I would recommend using seedless watermelon for best results and choose a ripe, juicy watermelon.

Water: You’ll also need some ice cubes or cold water to make it easier for you to blend the watermelon chunks.

How to Make Watermelon Juice

Ready to make watermelon juice from scratch? Here’s the step by step process you’ll need to follow.

Step 1: Cut the Watermelon

Cut the watermelon into quarters. Then remove the peel all around. Discard the peel and make watermelon cubes.

Step 2: Blend in a Blender

Add the watermelon cubes in the blender or a food processor. Add the water to the blender.

Step 3: Strain and Refrigerate

Blend until smooth. Using a strainer, strain the juice and pour it in a pitcher. Keep refrigerated.

Tips & Tricks to Nail the Watermelon Juice Recipe

While this juice recipe is super easy, you might want to take note of these tips and tricks too.

  • Since this juice is naturally sweet, there’s no need for any added sugar.
  • If you’re starting off with a whole watermelon, you might want to remove both the black and white seeds before you blend it into a juice.
  • If you want to lend this watermelon juice some extra flavor, you can add a dash of lemon juice or lime juice into the mix. This will also add a nice bit of vitamin C into this refreshing drink.
  • Use a fine mesh strainer or a nut milk bag to get rid of all the excess solids from the juice. If you love watermelon and don’t mind the chunks, you can skip this step too.
  • You can also add some cubed watermelon into your glass of watermelon juice, and top it with some fresh mint and a little lime juice to make it a refreshing summer drink you’ll never forget.

Watermelon Juice Benefits

The benefits of watermelon juice aren’t just limited to hydration on a hot summer day. As opposed to eating watermelon, a glass of refreshing watermelon juice can be a great way to improve your exercise recovery.

This fresh juice is also a great source of potassium, vitamin C, vitamin A and lots of other nutrients.

What Other Variations Can I Try?

To make this juice more healthy, you can also add some coconut water into the mix as opposed to regular water.

You can also top the watermelon juice with some fresh mint leaves right before serving.

How Do I Store the Leftover Watermelon Juice?

You can store your leftover watermelon juice in an airtight container or clean glasses that are covered.

The juice can stay fresh for up to 2 days.
