“We have unlimited juice? This party is gonna be off the hook!” –Buster

Our Arrested Development recipe countdown is almost over, but there’s one very important recipe that still needs to be shared.  I’m talking, of course, about the ultimate party beverage:  J-U-I-C-E.

Yes, everyone’s favorite shoulder-massaging, Hey Brother-greeting, mother-adoring scholar is obsessed with juice, and so am I. I blended together a few of my favorite summertime fruits to make a light, refreshing watermelon-raspberry juice, with just a hint of lime.  The raspberries and lime keep the watermelon juice from becoming too sweet and cloying.

This juice, served with lots of ice, was the perfect thing to help get us through our recent heat wave. I also made a few variations with fresh mint and basil, both of which were equally awesome. So if you want to add an herbacious twist, try muddling a few fresh mint or basil leaves with a bit of sugar in your glass before pouring in the juice.

Guzzle down Watermelon-Raspberry Juice while relaxing by the pool, or serve it for breakfast as a substitute for orange juice. May I suggest making these Blueberry and Brie Waffles to go along with it? Because: blueberries. And brie. And crispy carb-y waffle-y goodness! How could you not?

💡 Tips and FAQs  

How to pick a good watermelon

Flavorless watermelon will produce flavorless juice, so make sure you use a good melon! Look for melons that are dark green and dull on the outside (not shiney). It should feel heavier than it looks because that means it’s got a higher water content. And, pay attention to the field spot – the white, yellow or orange spot where the watermelon rested on the ground. Ripe watermelons have a darker orange field spot because they sat in the field ripening for a longer amount of time.

How to add mint or basil to the juice

You can add a mint or basil twist to your Watermelon-Raspberry Juice by muddling 3-4 large mint or basil leaves (or both?!) with a spoonful of sugar in the bottom of your glass before pouring in the juice.

Instructions 

  • Combine all ingredients in a blender. If the blender is too small, blend half of the watermelon first to reduce the volume, then add the remaining ingredients. Blend until thoroughly liquefied.
  • Pour the juice through a fine metal strainer to strain out any solids. Serve well-chilled, with ice. It will separate as it sits, so you may need to stir it well if you’re not serving it immediately.

Measuring Tips

Our recipes are developed using weight measurements, and we highly recommend using a kitchen scale for baking whenever possible. However, if you prefer to use cups, volume measurements are provided as well. PLEASE NOTE: the adage “8 oz = 1 cup” is NOT true when speaking about weight, so don’t be concerned if the measurements don’t fit this formula.
