I don’t know about you, but we consume massive quantities of watermelon during the summer months. I love that it is so kid-friendly and easy to share with friends. It is also packed with water, so it keeps us all hydrated while we are sweating it out in the heat. Today is National Drink Watermelon Day and I am going to share with you my family’s favorite way to beat the heat.

I have been using watermelon juice in cocktails (like my watermelon shooters with olive oil). My kids started getting upset because the pitcher of watermelon juice in the fridge was typically spike with vodka – oops!

So I made a pitcher of watermelon juice JUST FOR THE KIDDOS.

And this my easy way to make watermelon juice.

Cut your watermelon into 1-inch chunks. What you don’t have a cute watermelon cutting board? I have to say that this watermelon knife is super handy in slicing up watermelon FAST.

Stuff your watermelon chunks into a blender – and I mean STUFF IT. Don’t be shy. Shove those pieces way down. Because when you start blending, you want it to purée quickly. Add a little water if you have troubles.

Turn the blender on high and go, Go, GO!

Now, if you like it thick and your watermelon is seedless, you can slurp it up at this stage. But I like to strain out the seeds and pulp for a more juice-like consistency.

Pass your purée through a fine mesh strainer and use a rubber spatula to press everything through. And what you have left is dreamy watermelon juice. A 10.5-pound seedless watermelon will produce about 3-quarts of watermelon juice.

The perfect way to stay hydrated this summer, especially on National Drink Watermelon Day and STAY HYDRATED!

    Hi Laura,

    I am in total agreement, watermelon juice is fantastic and so refreshing!

    May i add that it’s also fantastic to add cucumber and mint when juicing. Will give the juice an even more refreshing after taste. Perfect for summer 🙂

    • Since I’m half-Persian, cucumber and mint is a combination we love! Great idea, Joana!

    • From what I read online, yes, you can use a juicer to juice a watermelon.
