Continuing the story from my Pineapple, Carrot and Ginger Juice, this Watermelon Limeade was another of my go to drinks in place of water. With the natural sweetness of Watermelon and teeny tiny bit of unrefined and nutritious honey, this was not only refreshing (thanks also to that mint!) but very satisfactory. I could gulp this down in gallons especially during summer when my body needed more of the life giving elixir - water!
This helped me in so many ways than one. This served as a wonderful detox along with providing abundant fluids to my system not to talk about the addition of fruits. Did you know about how I hardly ate fruits before? You should check out my Eggless Banana Cupcakes for that story. Can you appreciate how I have arrived leaving all these frustrating habits behind? Well, I certainly do and that to me is the most important. Self realization, indeed!
Makes around 1 litre
3 lbs (abt 1.4 kgs) Watermelon
3/4 cup Lime juice, or as needed , see Tips
Honey to taste
few sprigs of Mint
Ice Cubes, to serve
1. Lime Juice: The amount can range anywhere from 1/2 to 1 cup depending upon the sweetness of the watermelon and the amount of tang that you prefer. So start with say 1/2 cup and add more if required.
Chop the watermelon into chunks, cutting off skin and removing the seeds.
In batches, puree the watermelon along with lime juice
Add ice cubes along with the mint in a pitcher.
Pour the juice.
Add in some honey to taste and stir to combine.
Serve chilled with additional sprigs of mint and ice.
I love to hear from you! I read each and every comment, and will get
back as soon as I am able to.

:lol: Today i made the pure juice from a handle operated manual juicer and enjoyed the sweetness, color & few left over fibers. Shall innovate with putting some sweet lime, lime and extract the juice with few mint leaves, add honey and try it as i don't know how to ginger juice in small quantity. Thanks!

Thanks for the recipe! I didn't want the pulp that was strained out to go to waste (it is still food after all) so I froze it in an ice cube tray. Hope I end up with sorbet tomorrow :)

I make something like this when my kids are sick with a cold - 1 small (personal size) watermelon - cut up, juice of 2 limes, 2-3 cups of frozen strawberries . Put all ingredients in blender and blend until smooth. They always get well quickly and they love to drink it :)
OMG! Sounds perfect. My dude loves all of them and together, even I am willing to brave the cold. Thanks for the tip...I am so making some right now...--DK

Oh, my goodness! The combination of an ever-so-wonderful sweet watermelon and sour lime is something that must be close to nirvana!! I have not made this beverage, but I have made a watermelon-lime 'salad'..or, maybe it was desert? One thing was certain: it was abslutely delicious! I am certain this beverage is all that and more. I look forward to making it soon! Thank you for such a great combination of flavors!

I can't think of a better way to try and use up the rest of the watermelon in the fridge and limes on the counter. Your timing is impeccable, thank you!
