How to Make Watermelon Juice

Watermelon Juice

Homemade watermelon juice is a perfect way to enjoy this delicious summer snack with no added sugar or other flavors - just pure, juicy watermelon. 

Ingredients

  • A watermelon
  • A cutting board big enough to chop up your watermelon.
  • A large, sharp knife to cut into your watermelon and cut it into pieces.
  • A blender
  • A fine mesh sieve that fits over, and mostly covers, a large bowl

Instructions

Place your watermelon on the cutting board. Carefully cut it into large sections. Cut each section away from the watermelon rind. Dispose of the rind and cut the watermelon flesh into 2 -3 inch pieces. (These are getting blended up, so don’t worry about them being symmetrical or looking nice!) 

Place 3-4 cups of diced watermelon in a blender, cover, and purée until smooth. 

Pour the pureed watermelon through the fine mesh sieve into the large bowl. Use a spoon or spatula to move the watermelon pulp around in the sieve, making sure all the juice goes into the bowl. 

Dispose of the pulp leftover in the sieve. 

Repeat steps 2-4 until you have all the watermelon juice you want!

Pour the watermelon juice from the bowl into a pitcher and chill until ready to use.

Equipment

Notes

Watermelon juice will keep in the refrigerator for 4-5 days.
