Refreshing watermeon juice with a hint of salt is a tasty summer drink to keep you hydrated. All it takes is adding watermelon chunks to the blender and blending it for a minute!
Watermelon juice is good for you and has many health benefits. Watermelon is low calorie and naturally sweet and has 92% water content thats helps us stay hydrated. It is a nutrient dense fruit packed with vitamins and minerals. Just make sure to buy a good quality watermelon! Also check out this awesome post on how to pick a good watermelon.
Homemade watermelon juice is quick to make and does not need any fancy equipment. Simple add all the ingredients in the blender and blend tother. I love to add sea salt and a squeeze of fresh lime to brighten the flavors and to add a little zest to the juice. Depending on the sweetness of the watermelon, I sometimes add some sugar while blending the juice but it is totally optional.
- Some watermelons tend to be more pulpy or extra crunchy. So, if you do not like pulpy juice or bits of watermelon in the juice, you can either blend it again for an additional minute with 1/2 cup of chilled water or simply strain the juice before serving.
- I like to add sea salt that conatins minerals such as iodine, magnesium, calcium, potassium. It compliments the sweetness and also enhances the natural flavors in watermelon.
- If you have fresh mint leaves on hand feel free to add them to the blender to add a burst of cooling flavor. I like to serve watermelon juice with sprigs of fresh mint for its aroma and to make it even more visually appealing.
- You can also add few spoon fulls of small diced watermelon cubes or scopped watermelon balls (using watermelon baller) to the juice while serving for some texture.
- Add a splash of rum to make a delicious watermelon cocktail. Stir in some vodka and triple sec , or add some sparkling white wine and vodka, go ahead make some fun cocktails with your favorite liquor.
- Not my personal preference but many of my Indian family and friends enjoy watermelon juice with a pinch of Himalayan black salt or chaat masala to add savory umami taste.
