Sides + Snacks

Watermelon + Raspberry Juice

I don’t know where you are right now, but I’m in Texas and it is HOT today. And it’s been over 100 for 19 out of the last 25 days. We’re basically melting. Cold watermelon is probably the most delicious and refreshing thing that I could eat in the summer, so I buy a watermelon every week when I go to the grocery store. While we were eating our usual triangles of it today, I decided to experiment and 5 minutes later we were sipping on this yummy juice! I would definitely serve this at a bbq, brunch, or any get-together in the summer. It was so delicious, and definitely customizable in many ways. I think I’ll try it with strawberry and coconut next time…. (Me + coconut? Are you surprised? :)) Mmmmm!

Prep time: 5 minutes

Servings: 3-4


  • about 6 cups cubed, cold, seedless watermelon (this means without the black seeds. It’ll still have white seeds. That’s ok)
  • 1 lime, juiced
  • 1/2 cup frozen raspberries (fresh would be just fine)
  • 2.5 tbsp sugar
  • 1 cup ice

-In a blender, combine watermelon, lime juice, raspberries, and sugar. Blend for 20-30 seconds until completely juiced. (I have a Blendtec, so 20 seconds on high completely breaks up the seeds, which is awesome.)

-Add 1 cup of ice and blend again.

-Drink immediately or keep cold in the refrigerator until ready to serve. It’ll separate as it sits- just give it a good stir and it’s good to go!…
