Watermelon Juice

So easy and so refreshing.

-Take the rind off of 1 watermelon (you don’t have to be too careful taking all of it off as some rind is fine).

-Roughly cut into 2 inch chunks, don’t worry about the seeds.

-Add the chunks to a blender and blend until liquefied. If your blender has a tamper use it.

-Strain through a mesh strainer or drink as is.

-Yummy over ice with lime and/or vodka.
