Have extra watermelon to use up? Make this simple and refreshing watermelon juice!
Watermelon is one of my favorite summer indulgences and it is in our kitchen every week.
So far this year we haven’t had the best luck with watermelons unfortunately.
A few in a row were either dry or too mushy. Not bad, but not great flavor.
This recipe is the perfect way to not let sub par watermelon go to waste!
If you find yourself with watermelon to use up, make this watermelon juice!
How to make watermelon juice
Add watermelon and optional maple syrup to a blender.
The maple syrup helps if you get a watermelon that isn’t very sweet and lacking in flavor.
Blend watermelon and maple syrup until smooth, then pour over ice for a refreshing summer drink!
My drink blended well and wasn’t chunky, but for a smoother texture you can always pour the blended watermelon through a fine mesh strainer before serving.
