This Watermelon-Raspberry Juice is a beautiful blend of some of my favorite summertime fruits making a light, refreshing juice that has just a hint of lime. Perfect to help you get through a hot day, or any other time really.

Ingredients

  • 8 cups seedless watermelon chunks, chilled (2 1/2 lbs)
  • 1 cup fresh raspberries, or defrosted frozen berries (5 oz)
  • 1/4 cup fresh lime 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.

Notes

Flavorless watermelon will produce flavorless juice, so make sure you use a good melon! You can add a mint or basil twist 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.
