So I got creative and a little messy. And now I'll be excited when my watermelons are mealy.
Old, soft watermelon = Watermelon Juice!
|Seedless: Blend. (Strain if desired.)|
Seeded: Smash it through a strainer into a bowl.
This was ALL the pulp and seeds left from a small soccer-ball sized watermelon.
|Drink what you want now and freeze the rest in an ice cube tray. Or make ice pops.|
It won't last very long fresh, but will be great in smoothies or in a glass of mint water on a hot day!
|I could not believe the color! Watermelons are great sources of vitamin C, beta carotene/vitamin A, and the powerful antioxidant lycopene (which we usually associate with tomatoes!).|
|If you watermelon was room temp, pop the juice in the freezer for a few minutes to chill it.|
Yummy, hydrating and good for you!
