Watermelon, Ginger & Lime Juice

Reading Time: 2 minutes

Since my husband and I have been traveling so much in the last couple of years, I’ve had to get by without a well-equipped raw food kitchen. Some of the places we stay are better than others but mostly I only have access to very basic tools. We let go of our Vitamix a couple of years ago because it took up too much space in our luggage, plus it isn’t dual voltage so doesn’t work in many places in the world anyway.

Anyhow was really craving some fresh juice and wishing we had a juicer. The oranges here in the Bahamas have been pretty poor so even squeezing orange juice by hand isn’t an option. But we did manage to find some fantastic, sweet, and juicy watermelons.

Luckily we have a regular blender in our apartment so I had the idea to make watermelon juice. It was perfect!

Watermelon, Lime and Ginger Juice

Serves 3-4

8 cups watermelon, chilled and cubed
Juice of 1 lime
1 tablespoon chopped ginger
Water, as needed

Because watermelon contains such high water content it is really easy to make juice in the blender. Simply chop it into large cubes, add a little water to get it started and blend. If you have a Vitamix the water isn’t even necessary because you can use your tamper to push the melon down.

In this recipe, I added some fresh ginger and lime for a refreshing, alkalizing and hydrating fresh juice. You could certainly add extra ginger and lime to suit your own personal taste. Fresh mint leaves would also be a delicious addition.

If you prefer you can strain the juice after blending – with a large sieve or nut milk bag – to remove the fiber.

Even though I’ve done a lot of watermelon fasts in the past, lately I find it difficult to eat a lot of watermelon. However, in the form of juice, it is really easy to love. For me, it is easier on my digestive system and so much more satisfying.

I just love starting my day with fresh juice and it was great to discover a way to continue to do so, even without access to a juice bar or juicing machine.

  1. would it be possible to add the rind (outer skin) of both the watermelon and lime? I eat the whole lemon so i guess a lime is no different. And Lujan got me into eating the rind of watermelons – now i cant eat a watermelon without first biting into the green skin. Lol.
    I only have a blender – so im curious, would this not be suitable- i once made a juice in a blender but it made sharp peices that would scratch my throat. Any info or suggestions?
    Thanks.

  2. Tyson, if you have a juicer and can get organic watermelon and lime then you could use both. The juice wouldn’t be as sweet but would be very health-promoting.

    The rind is too tough to add to a regular blender and even in a Vitamix it wouldn’t be that pleasant to drink unless you used only a small piece. You could try adding a small amount of lime rind and this should work fine – but again only if organic as the skin can contain pesticide residues.

  3. Thanks mizpah for the reply.
    I want to let you know how much this was a hit with everyone.
    I added Lemon and mint too – for some reason i had it writen down on the reciepe.
    I served about 6 people this drink and 2 more tasted it all where in love. Its really good! And refreshing!
