Watermelon Juice

On our way home from the movie on Sunday, I had a hankering for watermelon.  I asked the husband to run into the store and pick up a half cut watermelon.  We munched on popcorn and M&M’s during the movie so I knew we wouldn’t really have dinner.  I figured fruit would be better than snacking on chips or more popcorn.

He came out of the store with a whole watermelon.  A WHOLE watermelon!  And it wasn’t even a small one.

Now let me tell you, I am one who enjoys watermelon.  I could eat it a big bowl of it and be just fine.  But with this watermelon, it looked like we would be eating it for days. Seriously. All week long.  I mean, it’s just the two of us at home.  No kids yet. No out of town visitors.  Just me and the husband. And now this huge watermelon.

So I decided I was going to have to be more creative because although it sometimes happens, I really hate throwing away food.

I’m going to finally try the combination of watermelon & feta using this recipe.   But the first thing I decided to do was keep it simple.  Way simple.

Watermelon juice.

Maybe not the most foreign concept but in my thirty plus years, I had never thought to make this.

Three simple ingredients and you don’t even need a fancy juicer, a regular blender will do.  A simple and quick process will give you a refreshing and nutritious drink in no time.

Maybe next time I’ll have some of these fun or fancy straws to use when I serve drinks.

Your how to:

* To be honest, I am not the best with measuring things out when I make stuff.  I just kind of go on instinct.  So these measurements that I am going to give you are an estimate for one 12 oz serving. But with something like this, you can always adjust to your taste and liking.

Place about 2 cups of peeled and cubed seedless watermelon in a blender.  Add 1/2 tablespoon sugar, juice from half of a lemon and a handful of ice cubes.  Blend on high for approzimately 30 seconds.  Serve immediately or chill in the refrigerator for up to 24 hours.

Chat ya’ later,

  2. I just made some today with my juicer. It wasn’t until after I was halfway done that I realized it would be easier to blend it! My Juice consists of watermelon and lemons. It’s in the freezer chilling, I can’t wait to drink it!

  3. Thanks for the nice, little recipe. Just one question. Does blending it on high for 30 seconds give the juice a thick texture or is it already runny at that point? This looks like something I’d want to try both ways and then decide how I’d like it.
