Did you know that when you buy pre-cut watermelon from the store its usually more expensive because someone is cutting it for you? Buying the entire watermelon can actually save you some money, if you are willing to put in a little elbow grease. Im only teasing, watermelons are actually not as difficult to open up- but just remember to be careful! To make fresh juice from a whole watermelon, you will need a blender and some mint leaves (if you’d like to infuse the two flavors). Otherwise, you will only need 1 ingredient- how simple! After cutting and dicing the watermelon up, blend the pulp into a liquid consistency (without the rind). Just make sure you strain the juice before pouring it into your glass with mint leaves. I like to refer to this refreshing and rehydrating drink as “Nectar of the gods” because its so delightful!
1 large watermelon
1 bunch mint
In blender on highest setting, blend cubed watermelon for around two minutes (if using Vitamix, use tamper to push fruit down).
Pour juice through small mesh strainer to remove pulp.
Store into a large container with mint leaves and enjoy.
Chef’s tip: You can also add some lime juice to this for some added flavor.
