What Makes This Juice So Delectable?

  • Dare I say it, it tastes – Even better than bottled watermelon water, and it won’t set you back $4+ per serving.
  • It’s really simple to create watermelon juice! The most difficult aspect is cutting the watermelon (for tips, see this page), but if you wanted to save even more time and work, you could buy pre-cut fresh watermelon chunks from the grocery store.
  • This recipe contains no added sugar or flavoring. It’s nothing but pure, delicious watermelon! You could add lemon juice (which would make it taste just like Wtrmln WTR) or even a little mint, but I prefer my juice to be as basic as possible.
  • Watermelon juice is thicker than water or most store-bought juices on their own. That’s because the fruit has been mashed, fibers and all. If you don’t like it that way, it’s simple to change! To thin out your watermelon juice, simply blend in a little water until you reach your desired consistency.

Important Ingredients

Watermelon – That’s all there is to watermelon. That is the component.

If you’re buying a fresh, whole watermelon, keep in mind that one pound of watermelon will provide around 1.5 cups of watermelon. That means you’ll need a watermelon that weighs at least 4 pounds for this juice.

What Is the Best Way to Pick a Watermelon?

Nothing is more annoying than biting into a piece of watermelon and receiving a mouthful of tough, thick, flavorless fruit.

Fortunately, there are certain things you can check for to reduce the chances of it happening! Your watermelon juice will be greatly influenced by the watermelon you choose.

  1. You’ll want to pick one that’s rather heavy for its size, like with most vegetables. The greater weight usually translates to more water, resulting in a juicier watermelon.
  2. On one side, your ideal watermelon should have a deep yellow patch. Why? The field location refers to where the watermelon was sitting on the ground before being picked. The darker color indicates that the watermelon has been on the vine for longer, which usually implies it is sweeter. Watermelon juice is sweeter when the watermelon is sweeter.
  3. Knock, knock, knock! A couple of times on the watermelon You should hear a deep sound when your knuckle bounces against the surface. You can also squeeze the rind; if it squishes in any way, move on to the next one.
  4. Choose one with a dark, rich green color, delicate yellow stripes, and a dull (not shiny) appearance. It’s also a positive sign if it has brown dots or stripes that appear like webs. That indicates it was pollinated more, and the more pollination it had, the sweeter it became.

Is Watermelon Juice Beneficial?

Watermelon has had a bad name for being less nutrition-rich than other fruits, but it’s actually loaded with nutrients.

Aside from being tremendously hydrating (watermelons are 92 percent water), they also provide the following benefits:

  • Anti-inflammatory cucurbitacin
  • E vitamin C
  • carotenoids, AKA what your body generously transforms into vitamin A
  • amino acid citrulline
  • potassium
  • magnesium
  • a number of vitamins B

Enjoy your watermelon juice to the fullest.

Chef’s Advice

  • Pour the pureed watermelon through a fine-mesh sieve over a pitcher or large jar if you want juice with fewer pulp. However, keep in mind that the pulp contains fiber. Because watermelon is high in sugar, I prefer to keep mine a little pulpy.
  • Is it possible to make this with a food processor or with a juicer? I see no reason why not! Simply ensure that you thoroughly process everything. You should probably filter the juice as well. To be honest, I still believe the blender is the most convenient alternative!
  • Looking for the most authentic watermelon flavor? Sprinkle a pinch of fleur de sel into your watermelon juice, either before you combine it or before you serve it, if you like your watermelon with a little salt. Incredible.
  • This watermelon juice should be served chilled, or at the very least over ice. You may also make ice cubes out of portion of the juice and use them in your glass of juice. That way, they won’t dilute your drink when they melt!


  • To make sparkling watermelon water, thin your watermelon juice with sparkling water instead of flat water.
  • Do you want adult watermelon juice? For a pleasant, super-easy cocktail, combine vodka or rum (basic or flavored).
  • For a crisp, delicious variant, add peeled, chopped cucumber and a squeeze of lime juice. You should probably strain this one.
  • Fresh mint leaves or a dab of mint essence combined with watermelon chunks will make your drink delectably light and flavorful with just a hint of mint.
  • Cut the watermelon into cubes and place them on a sheet pan to make frozen watermelon juice. Place the pan in the freezer until the watermelon is completely frozen, then mix the frozen cubes until they have the consistency of a watermelon daiquiri.

  1. In a blender, combine the watermelon cubes.
  2. Blend on medium until the watermelon is fully smooth, then gradually increase the speed. To achieve a thinner consistency, add water and blend again.
  3. Serve immediately over ice or chill until ready to serve. Note: If you want a juice without the pulp, filter the liquid through a sieve before serving.


  • I prefer the watermelon juice without the extra water, but you can add as much or as little as you want!
  • If you have any leftover watermelon juice, keep it refrigerated for up to 2 days in an airtight container.
