Blue skies, sunshine, and a cold drink in your hand. Those days are just around the corner! The first official day of summer is June 21.
During warm weather, lemonade is always a winner:
But what if you’re in the mood for something else? Maybe fresh watermelon juice will hit the spot!
Those sunbeans warm you down to the bone…and can trigger dehydration or an increased body temperature. Watermelon is 92% water so it cures the dehydration part. Pop some ice in your glass and you will definitely keep cool while sipping this refreshing drink.
One batch of this blender juice makes approximately 5 servings—if you’re willing to share!
First, dice up watermelon and remove the seeds. (Definitely remove the black ones, and try to remove the white ones but don’t fret if you miss a few of these because the blender will grind them up.)
Dump 5 cups of diced watermelon into your Vitamix blender cup, along with a few tablespoons of honey and fresh lime juice. If your watermelon isn’t cold, you may want to add a cup of ice as well.
Blend on high and enjoy immediately. But don’t gulp it down too fast or you’ll have to make another batch!
