How to Juice a Watermelon

Sometimes when it’s hot out, the only thing that sounds good is an ice cold glass of something refreshing. And that’s where this Watermelon Juice comes in. You can also use this watermelon juice in my Watermelon Margaritas!

This recipe is made with blended watermelon, fresh mint, and optional lime and honey. It’s so simple, so quick to make, naturally sweetened, and the perfect way to cool off in the summer. Everyone will love this easy fruit drink.

What You’ll Need

  • Watermelon: you’ll need 3 cups of fresh watermelon cubes. Frozen will work too, but it won’t be as fresh and it will be more like a slushy.
  • Mint (optional): garnishing your glass with some fresh mint leaves adds delicious freshness and makes it look pretty.
  • Lime (optional): I love to add a splash of fresh lime juice to give the drink a subtle tangy flavor.
  • Honey (optional): for some extra sweetness, if desired.

How to Make Watermelon Juice

This watermelon juice recipe really comes together in just a couple of minutes! 

  1. Blend: Place watermelon cubes into a blender and blend until smooth.
  2. Add flavor (optional): Add lime and honey if using, then blend again.
  3. Strain: If needed, strain! If you use a high-speed blender, you can omit this step.
  4. Garnish and serve: Garnish with mint and serve in your favorite glass.

Benefits of Watermelon Juice

There are plenty of watermelon juice benefits! Watermelon is super high in vitamins A, B, and C as well as potassium and antioxidants. It’s also over 90% water. 

And the same goes for the juice. It’s loaded with vitamins and nutrients AND it’s super hydrating.

Is it Good to Drink Watermelon Juice Everyday?

Like all things, you should enjoy watermelon juice in moderation. Sugar is sugar. However, there’s nothing wrong with sipping on a glass of this refreshing stuff everyday!

Tips and Notes

  • Get seedless. Seedless will have the little white seeds, but not the big black ones. We don’t want those.
  • To find a good watermelon, give it a knock with your knuckles. It should sound hollow. The skin should also be more dull than shiny. The riper the watermelon, the sweeter the juice.
  • If you love mint, blend some in along with the lime and honey.
  • Make it boozy. Add a splash of tequila or white rum for a refreshing summer cocktail.

How to Store

Leftover watermelon juice will last in the fridge for up to 3 days. You can also freeze it and make it into a slushy or turn it into delicious watermelon popsicles. It will last in the freezer for up to 2 months.
