Strawberry Watermelon Juice – a nutritious combination of sweet watery goodness with pulpy bursts of fruity flavor you can make in less than 10 minutes. Sip all your worries away and relax because the perfect refreshment for hot summer days is just a few fruit slices away.
If I see, smell, or taste watermelon, that means that we’re well into summertime! Recently I shared a few tips on How to Pick a Watermelon whether in a grocery store or at a farmer’s market. Now, you’re probably asking “What do I do with this?”.
There are a lot of recipes you can make with this green round fruit; from delicious salads (see my Watermelon Salad HERE) to refreshing Agua Fresca, the possibilities are vast and wide, but today we’re going to talk about the latter.
Strawberry Watermelon Juice Ingredients
As the name suggests, this recipe will only take two ingredients to make (yes, you can make it even without the rest of the ingredients in the list):
Your choice of watermelon, but I do suggest picking a large elongated as it’s waterier and juicier which helps with the texture and consistency of our beverage.
To prepare this ingredient, take the seeds out of the watermelon by cutting it in half and removing the core part of the fruit using a spoon. Slice into medium-thick segments and cube the red parts and you’re good to go.
This is where our second ingredient comes in. Strawberry is naturally sweet so it combines with the mild taste of the watermelon to make the perfect summer flavor. If you’re having problems trying to find fresh berries, you can use frozen strawberries; we’re going to serve it cold anyway.
Preparing this is super easy! First, remove the leafy part by pulling it or using a straw to pierce the tip of the berry to push the leafy part out. Once you have the sweet soft red part cut it into halves or quarters.
Making Strawberry Watermelon Juice
When I said that you can make this drink in less than 10 minutes, I meant it. Once you have your mise en place all you have to do is to put the ingredients into your trusty blender.
The goal is to blend the two ingredients together as much as we can. What I like to do here is to pulse it for around 30 seconds or so, just to make sure that the blender doesn’t have a hard time mixing them later on.
Turn your blender to medium-high speed and leave it for a minute or two. The natural fluids of the watermelon and strawberry will now be extracted leaving a pulpy juice mixture. Serve with ice for an extra refreshing feeling.
Level up your Watermelon and Strawberry juice by adding a little love to it. You could try incorporating these ingredients to your drink for a different kind of kick.
- If you like a bit of fun, add a few shots of vodka but make sure not to overpower the original flavor of your drink.
- Adding cinnamon will also make your summer drink feel like Christmas. The natural flavor of the watermelon together with the earthy spice blended together with the strawberry’s sweetness. Ohhhh… just thinking about it makes my mouth water.
- Make it extra refreshing by garnishing it with mint. Even your breath will feel refreshed!
- Tropical paradise you say? We got you! Add a bit of pineapple juice as you blend it at high speed and you’ll end up in a dream-like vacation.
