On a hot summer day, there's nothing like a pitcher of sweet, refreshing watermelon juice to keep you hydrated.
- 1 1 small watermelon, about 6 pounds
- 1 Cup water, as required
- Sugar/honey/agave nectar to taste
- 3 Tablespoon fresh lemon juice
- Few mint leaves for garnish
- Crushed ice to serve
Slice the watermelon in half. If it has seeds use a small spoon to scoop out the seeds. Discard the seeds, and scoop chunks of watermelon from the rind into the blender. Pulse the watermelon using little water in batches.
Squeeze in the lemon juice into the blender and desired sweetener and blend for a few seconds. Pour the watermelon juice into a pitcher or pour directly into glasses, over ice. Garnish with mint.
