Watermelon Juice |Summer Coolers| Kids Delight |BM #15

Watermelon is a great fruit to have during summer. It is very good for health. This is a perfect thrist quencher. There are couple of recipes we can do out of watermelon during summer (Juice, Granita, Popsicles and many more). It has lot of vitamins and is one of the easiest juice to make. Watermelon rind (white part) is also edible and many recipes are made out of them. Some people use the seeds also to make some powders to mix with rice and eat. These days we get the seedless version of it which is also pretty good. Here in the US, we get smaller size watermelon which is also seedless. They are very useful in making juice like this. My son is 17 months old and i don't offer many juice yet.
Only once in a while i have given him Coconut water or Apple juice till now. But, today when he saw me making this colorful juice. He was so interested in having it. Since this juice does not need any sugar as it is naturally sweet. If you want Honey can be added. I thought there is no harm in offering him. He just LOVED it. I was very happy.

Now here goes the recipe,
3-4 cups of Watermelon pieces
1 cup of water
1 cup of pear (optional)
2-3 tea spoons Sugar/ Honey (optional)

In a juicer add the watermelon pieces,water,pear and sugar/honey (if needed) and run the mixer. Strain the juice if there are seeds and serve cold with ice chips whoever needs it. I did not use ice chips. Simple Watermelon juice is ready to serve.

Watermelon is such a versatile fruit that it tastes good no matter how we season it. I add a pinch of pepper to my juice and that tastes awesome too.
