Ingredients

Scale
  • 1 small sweet watermelon (~ 6 pounds)
  • 1 small lime, juiced (optional)

Instructions

  1. Slice the watermelon in half. Using a big spoon, scoop chunks of sweet watermelon into the blender. Discard the rind.
  2. Blend the watermelon in a blender or food processor until it’s totally pulverized. This shouldn’t take more than a minute. For extra flavor, squeeze the juice of one small lime into the blender and blend for a few seconds.
  3. If your watermelon is notably pulpy or seeded, pour the mixture through a fine mesh strainer into a pitcher. If not, you can pour it directly into glasses filled with ice. Watermelon juice will keep in the refrigerator, covered, for up to four days. The juice will separate over time; stir it with a spoon to recombine.
