Refreshing Watermelon Juice Ingredients:
8 cups cubed watermelon (chilled)
5-6 leaves of fresh mint or basil
Directions: Blend the watermelon with either the mint or basil in a high speed blender until everything becomes liquid. Strain through a fine sieve or nut milk bag and either drink right away, or keep in the fridge for up to 1-2 days (it’s always best within the first 24 hours). Mint adds a super cool refreshing twist to this delicious drink. If you want to switch it up, a touch of basil is a unique way to take this juice to the next level!
Enjoy this super cooling recipe on a hot day when you need to beat the heat!
