Watermelon Juice

ID-100145347Watermelon juice could very easily be the easiest kind of juice to make, possibly even easier to make than the more common orange juice. The reason for this is pretty obvious from the first instance you come across the large fleshy and watery fruit.

No, not when you are still looking at the huge uncut thing, but the instant you cut it up and get a glimpse of the water dripping from it even before you start eating. The problem is, you find it hard to decide if you are supposed to eat this fruit or to drink it sometimes.

Like I said, making the juice is easy, and it could be done anyhow you want to do it. You could make your watermelon juice by macerating the fleshy insides of the fruits, which does not take a lot of work at all because it is already soft and very watery.

You could make it by passing the fruit through a juice or through a blender; you could decide to take the trouble to pick out the numerous seeds that are more of a nuisance and irritable bother than anything else – they don’t significantly contribute to or remove from the taste of it; or else you could decide to include the back of the fruit in your watermelon juice as well, when you throw it in the blender with the fleshy insides.

Come on, don’t get all weird now – there’s no harm in including the back of the fruit in the juice. Sure the taste of it is quite unpalatable, but I assure you it’s good for your health. The obvious reason is that a good amount of the nutrients in the fruit are in the back, so really you would just be doing yourself a huge favor in the process.

I must add that the nutritional and health values in watermelon juice are obtained from the large vitamin C and manganese components of the fruit, which are inherent in the juice as well while it is still fresh. The longer it takes from fresh before drinking, though, the more of them you lose.
