Watermelon Juice

A thirst quencher recipe. It is simply delicious and yet highly nutritious with many health benefits. It contains more than 90% water, and a good source of vitamin- A, C, B6, and he minerals-potassium and magnesium.

Watermelon is a seasonal fruit and when it is available, I normally make juices, sorbets or salads. 


2 cups diced Watermelon
1/2 Lemon


  • In a blender, blend watermelon until it is completely pulverized
  •  Add juice of half a lemon
  • If you are using seedless watermelon then you don't need to strain the juice. Otherwise strain the juice using a filter ad discard its contents
  • Serve immediately

  • Pick a good watermelon for juicing. It should be bright in color and the stripes should be symmetrical. Most importantly, there should be a yellow patch, which means that the water melon was left to grow in ground and it was ripened under the sun. 
  • If you have picked good watermelon, then no need to add sugar. Else you can add 1/2 tsp for ever cup of juice
