Coriander is renowned for its anti-chelating properties. Ariel Policano writes that watermelon aids the liver in processing ammonia and converting it into urea so that it can be safely excreted from the body. The watermelon rind is an excellent source of chlorophyll, vitamin B6, and citrulline. Evidence in the Journal of the Science of Food and Agriculture (03/2011) suggests that the citrulline in watermelon rinds gives it an antioxidant effect, which reduces free-radical damage. Cucumber also contains citrulline and is an excellent food for hydration. While all that is good and healthy, I just love how light and refreshing this juice is — slightly herbal and slightly sweet.

How to Make Watermelon Juice
So let's talk about how to make the juice . it's so simple!
You only need three ingredients for this easy watermelon drink:
The lime juice brightens the fresh fruit flavor of this yummy drink, and the sugar intensifies the melon's sweetness. Of course, watermelons are naturally sweet, so you can leave out the sugar if you wish. Or replace it with honey or maple syrup . it's up to you.
By the way, I used half a watermelon for this recipe (which yielded about 12 cups chopped fruit). You can easily scale this recipe up or down, depending on how much melon you have on hand though.
To make the juice, combine the watermelon chunks, lime juice, and sugar (if using) in your blender. Then simply purée the melon until totally smooth. It should take about a minute. Give the juice a quick stir about half way through, only if needed.
If you prefer, you can strain the watermelon purée before serving with fine mesh strainer. I don't think that's really necessary though, since it's not overly pulpy.
I'd recommend chilling the watermelon before puréeing it. That way the juice is chilled and ready to drink, but you can serve it over ice, too.
Want to take your juice to the next level? Enhance the flavor of your fresh watermelon drink by adding fresh herbs like basil or mint. Doesn't that sound refreshing?

I've made this recipe for many years since it was first published. Made it this weekend for a party and it was the hit of the afternoon. I don't understand other reviewers not liking it. I always get raves.
This one falls into the category of an "old reliable." I've made it again, and again, and AGAIN. It's always a hit. The combination of sweet and spicy never fails to delight those who have had it before and usually intrigues those who haven't. <p> I have a marked preference for the basil version over the cilantro I think it balances the chili and the cayenne better. <p> As a side note, I generally ball the melon, rather than cube it. It seems to "toss" more efficiently, and it looks great.
I like all the spices used in this recipe so I thought I would enjoy this, however, that was not the case. The spices over-power everything - very disappointing.
I have made this several times and it has been a hit at each party. It is delightfully different. And spicy - beware if you have Watermelon Purists. I usually prepare a small bowl of plain, cubed watermelon for those who cannot tolerate spicy foods.
I love both watermelon and cilantro, but the spices hide the taste of both. It's potentially a way to use a flavorless watermelon that you would otherwise toss. and effectively hides the cilantro taste for your friends who don't care for it. Not a keeper for me or my family.
Wonderfully different taste! tried it with basil first - GREAT and am making it again with cilantro. can't wait!
This recipe had a very unique taste, but it was to "way out" for the family and me. Sorry, I won't be doing this one again
I found this recipe while looking for a watermelon salsa recipe. It's similar to watermelon salsa and is very unusual, easy and tasty. It is great with BBQ chicken. I will definitely make it again, and look forward to trying it with basil.
I first made this when it appeared in June ➓. Maybe the unusual combination of ingredients has kept others from trying it. The first time I used basil the second time, cilantro. Delicious both times. A great way to use watermelon that's not sweet enough to have for dessert. Just add a little sugar to the seasonings.
This drink is to be served chilled.
You could add in some tender coconut water to this recipe as well, to give it a delicious light sweet coconut flavor or top it off with some soaked chia seeds, another variation would be to add some vodka to give it that extra kick.
So the next time you’re looking at trying a unique and simple cocktail recipe, give this cooler a shot.
If you’re looking to seek the health benefits of this drink, I’d recommend you enjoy this delicious ginger and watermelon cooler as soon as it’s prepared so that all the nutrients are intact.
So what are you waiting for?
The next time you are organizing a cocktail party or a party for the kiddos, mix up this delicious watermelon cooler with the added twist of fresh ginger.

How to make Watermelon Juice
This is so so so easy! Just add all the ingredients to a blender and blend! You could make watermelon juice without a blender and use a juicer instead. But like to use a blender, I seem to get more out of the watermelon.
Add a few mint leaves and serve over a lot of ice!
