Watermelon Sliced Or Juiced
Watermelon contains a wealth of nutrients, such as vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants, but hardly any calories. A favorite summer picnic fruit, watermelon is 90 percent water. A delicious drink, one of my favourites.
Choose a watermelon that feels heavy for its size and has a smooth, uniform shape. Carefully slice off top and bottom of watermelon using a serrated bread knife. Stand the melon on a cut side, and carefully slice down through the middle. Cut the watermelon into wedges.Scrape out seeds using a teaspoon. To remove the rind, hold a wedge steady and slice the melon away using a sharp knife, where the pink flesh starts to turn white.
- 1 seedless watermelon
- Cold water
- Ice cubes
Cut the watermelon into wedges as above. Peel the watermelon and slice it into 1" (2.5 cm) chunks using a sharp knife. Blend the watermelon chunks and check the consistency. Add water for thinner juice and add ice cubes for thicker juice. Blend well until the juice is smooth. Pour the juice over ice cubes in a tall glass. You can strain the juice, if you wish, to remove the pulp.
