      Make a thirst-quenching super juice made from watermelons

      Watermelons are deliciously thirst-quenching superfoods. They are filled with a variety of health supporting nutrients, such as vitamins A, B6 and C, lycopene, amino acids and antioxidants. For athletes and active people who want a quick and healthy way to rehydrate, watermelon juice is the way to go. Many energy drinks aren’t able to compare to the rebalancing power of watermelon juice. Watermelon not only moistens the body and the cells, but it also flushes out toxins in the bladder, the kidneys and the gallbladder.

      Athletes and other people who live active lifestyles need to consume foods with high water content, such as cabbage, tomatoes, zucchini, cucumber and watermelon, 92 percent of which is water. This means that consuming watermelon doesn’t just help people feel full, but it also helps them stay hydrated.

      Watermelon juice recipe

      Here is an easy to do watermelon juice recipe that you can do at home. For this recipe, all you will need is one small sweet watermelon. If you want extra flavor in your watermelon juice, you can include a small lime in your recipe.

      Instructions:

      1. Slice the small watermelon in half and, using a big spoon, scoop up chunks of the watermelon into a blender. Discard any rind.
      2. Blend the chunks of watermelon until everything has been totally pulverized. This should take around a minute of blending.
      3. After blending, you can add lime to your juice for extra flavor. Squeeze the juice of one small piece of lime into the blender and blend it for a few seconds to fully mix the flavor in.
      4. If your watermelon has a lot of pulp or seeds, pour it through a fine mesh strainer first. If not, feel free to pour it directly into a glass filled with ice.

      The yield of your watermelon juice will vary depending on the size of your watermelon. A six pound watermelon can provide you with around five cups of juice. It should be perfectly sweet as well, so there’s no need to add any sugar.

      You can keep watermelon juice in your refrigerator for up to four days, just remember that the juice will separate over time, so shake it or stir it with a spoon to recombine the juice before drinking it again.
