I thought i will share a simple watermelon juice recipe with you guys today.
Fresh Watermelon Juice (serves 2)
Watermelon - 1/2 of a whole watermelon
Freshly squeezed lime juice - 1 tablespoon
Agave Nectar/Honey - 2 tablespoon
I love spicing up a simple recipe with some cute decorating or garnishing.
For decorating the glass you will need
Honey - 1 teaspoon
Sugar - 2 tablespoon
Coat the rim of the glass with honey using the back of a spoon. Make sure you coat the rim evenly without missing a spot. Spread the sugar on a small plate. Just place and press the rim on the sugar spread so that the sugar gets attached to the honey coated rim. Press it several times till you get a full coat of sugar on the rim. Your glass is now ready. You can totally skip this step if u are a zero-sugar-in-your-drink kinda person.
Cut the melon into 2 inch cubes after removing the seeds. I don't remove seeds because i believe they are healthy too. But if you are doubtful that they might spoil the taste, then do remove them. Blend the juice well in a blender and pour them in ice filled glass. If you don't like the pulp, you can strain them using a colander/muslin cloth and use only the juice, when it comes to fruit juices I drink them as whole as possible. Add the agave nectar (or honey), lime juice and mix well. Use watermelon or lime wedges to garnish and serve.
Make watermelon your best friend this summer. Hope you try out the recipe and let me know how you like it. xo, Hems
