Nothing can beat the summer like a tall cool drink of watermelon juice.
A watermelon contains about 6% sugar and 92% water by weight.
As with many other fruits, it is a source of vitamin C.
Watermelon is mildly diuretic and contains large amounts of beta carotene.
Watermelon with red flesh is a significant source of lycopene.
Researchers believe that beta-carotene and vitamin C are capable of preventing heart disease, cancer, and other chronic conditions.
No matter which way you cut them, when it comes to nutrition, melons are number one.

Watermelon - 1 seedless watermelon
Powdered sugar or honey to taste
Cold water and ice cubes

Wear an apron over your clothing when cutting watermelon. Place your watermelon on a cutting board. Peel the watermelon and slice it into 1"chunks using a sharp knife.
Place the watermelon chunks into a bowl. Use a fork instead of using your hands to avoid dripping of the juice.
Place the watermelon in a blender. Add powdered sugar or honey, if desired.
Blend your watermelon chunks and sweetener and check the consistency.
Blend well until the juice is smooth. Pour the juice over ice cubes in a tall glass.
You can strain the juice, if you wish, to remove the pulp. I advice not to do so as the pulp contains a lot of nutrition.


·         If you can't find a seedless watermelon, then cut a regular watermelon into quarters. Find the seed line and cut along the line with a paring knife. Remove the piece that you cut and use a fork to scrape out any remaining seeds that are still attached to the watermelon.

·         Add water for thinner juice and add ice cubes for thicker juice.

·         Always use a ripe watermelon for juicing. If you like sweetness, select a sweeter variety of watermelon, such as sugar baby.

·         Adding the juice of half a lemon to a glass of juice and honey (as a sweetener) makes it very refreshing with a zing during summers.

·         Fresh mint makes a vibrant addition to watermelon juice. Add a few clean mint leaves to the juice as it is blending.

Enjoy your chilled Watermelon juice whichever way you like it.
