What is Watermelon Juice?

Watermelon juice is made by either blending or juicing the flesh of the watermelon. But, did you know that you can also juice the rind of the watermelon? I wouldn’t suggest eating watermelon rind because it is very fibrous and doesn’t have much flavor, but the nutritional properties of watermelon rind make it ideal for juicing.

Also, in case you were wondering, you can juice the watermelon seeds! The seeds are also high in nutrition. I always recommend using organic produce for juicing, by the way. It’s especially important in this case where you are juicing the rind.

Recipe Steps

Since the flesh of the watermelon is so sweet, I find the combination of juicing watermelon flesh, watermelon rind, kale, cucumber, and a lime to be absolute perfection.

Unfortunately, by adding the kale in the juice mix, it turns the juice green, but you will definitely taste the watermelon when you drink it. The sweetness of the watermelon covers any of the bitterness from the kale and watermelon rind.

If you’re considering a juice cleanse, you definitely need to do your research. My preferred way of consuming juice is to use it in conjunction with a clean diet to boost micronutrient levels. I drink fresh juice a couple of times a week. But, everyone is different!
