Looking for the perfect summer drink? Look no further! In this watermelon juice recipe we infuse mint and lime to balance out the sweetness of the watermelon, making it a crushable favorite.

Pressing Technique: Watermelon is a mushy fruit, so take care not to overfill the press to avoid overflow.

It is easy to make with your home juicer or add it to your juice bar menu. While it’s amazing as a hydrating juice, it is also very versatile and can be used a number of creative ways, even as a cold-pressed cocktail base. Just add vodka, or for a mojito add rum, and for a margarita, add tequila.

Ingredients

watermelon (seedless) 15 oz 425 g 3 cups cubed watermelon
lime 0.23 oz 7 g 1/5 lime
mint leaves 0.11 oz 3 g 3-4 leaves

Directions

  1. Wash the produce thoroughly.

  2. Remove the watermelon rind and cut into cubes; weigh the produce. Cut the lime into fifths (leaving the skin on).

  3. If you have a juice press, place both the watermelon and the lime directly into the press. If you don’t have a juice press, peel the lime and juice both the watermelon and the lime with the rest of the ingredients.

  4. Grind remaining ingredients together and press.

Pro Tips

  • Watermelon is a mushy fruit, so take care not to overfill the press to avoid overflow.

  • Add a little beet juice to brighten the color!

  • You can actually leave the watermelon skin on if you prefer (there are nutrients in the skin) but the juice will look less vibrant and will mellow the flavor a bit. If your watermelon is not that sweet, you will want to peel it.

  • If mint stems are tender and green, you can use them as well as the leaves!

  1. Love the sound of this with lime.

    We make a watermelon juice with our x1-mini called A Hint Of Mint,

    It’s delicious and made up of watermelon, cucumber & mint. We peel the cucumbers too as it tastes extra clean & refreshing ☀️

    HI, Thank you Divinely for this tasty offering.

    I am curious about using the mint in the X-1. Everything else is in the press, so is it worth throwing the little bit of mint down the hopper? Or would it make sense and work fine by just placing in press?

    THANKS AGAIN!

    1. Great point, For the X-1 only you are correct, However, mint has a ton more flavor if ground, so I would probably take a piece of watermelon and grind it along with the mint on top of the other items just to get that extra bit of flavor. The mint if ground by itself is sometimes too light to get a proper grind so doing it with a piece of watermelon will work great.
