Tips

  • Always use a ripe watermelon for juicing. If you like sweetness, select a sweeter variety of watermelon, such as sugar baby.
  • Fresh mint makes a vibrant addition to watermelon juice. Add a few clean mint leaves to the juice as it is blending.
  • Leave the white rind intact; it contains more vitamins and nutrients than the red flesh. [1]
  • If you can't find a seedless watermelon, cut a regular watermelon into quarters. Find the seed line and cut along the line with a paring knife. Remove the piece that you cut and use a fork to scrape out any remaining seeds that are still attached to the watermelon.

Warnings

  • Wear an apron over your clothing when cutting watermelon and pomegranates. Pomegranates in particular can leave stubborn stains.
