Watermelon Juice - Sugarless drink

With Summer at its peak, keeping yourself hydrated is vital. But if you got bored with monotony of cold water and are looking for other natural options, try Watermelon Juice. Thinking about it, watermelon is available in abundance during summers. Its nature's way of balancing the heat with this coolant fruit which contains 92% water & is naturally sweet so you need no sugar to be added to your drink. Isn't that great - some calories saved happy

Am not really a soda person & prefer the non-aerated drinks or the fruits juices over the aerated ones. When it comes to fruit juice, I prefer to keep it as natural as I can. First time when I made watermelon juice, I didn't filter it i.e. served it with the pulp after blending, although the taste was same it made the juice really thick & heavy. Next time I tried filtering the pulp & serving just the liquid. No kidding, the moment my hubby took a sip of it, he has been hooked to it. Its very refreshing & energizing, with no pesticides or artificial flavor !!  

Ingredients: 
2 cups of watermelon pieces
Juice of 1/2 lemon 
black salt to taste
some ice  cubes
1/2 cup of water

Method: 
  • In a blender, add the watermelon pieces along with water & grind. 
  • Once watermelon is pureed add the ice cubes & pulse. Blend till you get a smooth puree. 
  • In a vessel filter the watermelon puree to separate the thick pulp from the liquid. 
  • To this liquid, add lemon juice & black salt. Mix. 

Tip:This juice is very easy to make & is ready in no time so my suggestion is to make this fresh always.


That's it our refreshing watermelon juice is ready. Serve chilled!! 
Stay Hydrated!!
