About Watermelon Juice
Watermelon juice is a delicious drink created by blending ripe watermelon and lemon juice. It is a popular summer beverage due to its hydrating properties and naturally sweet taste, making it the perfect way to quench your thirst.
Watermelon juice is hydrating and naturally making it an excellent choice for a hot day. Watermelon Juice is rich in vitamins and antioxidants, particularly vitamin C.
Moreover, it serves as a flexible foundation for making a variety of refreshing drinks, such as watermelon-infused lemonade or watermelon-based smoothies. This juice is the perfect option for satisfying your thirst on a scorching day.
During the summer, take advantage of nature’s gift to us – watermelon. When selecting a watermelon, opt for one that feels heavy, as this is a sign of a good watermelon.
The striking hue of red in watermelon is due to its abundance of lycopene. This drink, resembling a ruby gem, not only entices our taste buds but also provides numerous benefits for our health. With a water content of 92%, watermelon is considered a superfood that effectively hydrates our bodies. Additionally, its high potassium levels make it a rich source of antioxidants.
Although pre-packaged juice and carbonated juices are conveniently accessible, fresh juice offers its own advantages. Additionally, pre-packaged juices contain artificial additives and preservatives to prolong their shelf life, which can be detrimental to one’s health.

Recipe for Watermelon Mint Juice
I came across this variation on a juice shop’s menu, which uses mint juice. I wanted to try it because watermelon and lemon are a classic refreshing combination, and the addition of mint gives it an extra kick, perfect for the summertime.
Watermelon – 2 cups chopped
Mint – 10 leaves
Lemon – 1 tsp
Sugar – 1 tablespoon
Salt – a pinch
Ice cubes – few
Peel the watermelon and dispose of the seeds. Cut into small cubes. In a blender, combine the chopped watermelon, mint, sugar, and salt. Blend until well mixed. Then, add lemon juice to the mixture.
If your watermelon is not sweet, you have the option to add sugar or honey. However, if your watermelon variety is already sweet, there is no need for additional sweetener.
I chilled the watermelons before serving, so I did not include ice cubes. However, you can add 1-2 ice cubes if desired.
Adding salt or chaat masala powder adds a delightful kick, you could consider trying it out.
Be sure to mix thoroughly before serving to prevent the water from settling at the bottom.
If you enjoy refreshing watermelon juice, it is recommended to refrigerate the fruit before juicing.
Serving & Storage Suggestion
You can enjoy it as is or with a few ice cubes. It’s best to drink fruit juice fresh, so I don’t suggest keeping it stored. However, you can refrigerate cut fruit cubes for up to 2 days and make juice as needed.
The juice from watermelon can be stored at room temperature for 4-6 hours, or in the fridge for 1 day. You can also freeze the juice in a mold to make popsicles.
Is it possible for me to include sugar in watermelon juice?
You have the option to include sugar, honey, or any preferred sweetener. But if the fruit is already sweet, then no added sweetener is necessary.
What is the maximum amount of time a sliced watermelon can be kept in the refrigerator?
A full watermelon, sliced in half or into wedges, can remain fresh in the refrigerator for 2 days. Diced watermelon that has been cut and cleaned can be kept in the fridge for up to 3 days.
