Watermelon is the perfect Summer fruit. It’s in season, juicy and delicious on a hot Summer day. I like to buy firm, ripe watermelons that still have the seeds and, ideally, I try to buy organic because non-organic melons are often exposed to pesticides. Watermelon helps to flush bloat and it hydrates you. This Easy Watermelon Detox Drink is a great way to get the nutritional benefits of watermelon and detox your system. I love to start my day with a big glass of it during the Summer.
When you purchase watermelon, it lasts 5 days refrigerated, once cut. To you safely cut a whole watermelon, I recommend purchasing a kit that includes a watermelon slicer, corer and scoop from Amazon (affiliate link). It makes the process quicker and less messy. You can make a big batch of this drink and enjoy it throughout the week. There is nothing artificial in it, so you’re just receiving the natural detox benefits of the ingredients. Since it’s natural, the kids will even love sipping on it.
Make sure you’ve got a blender – I recommend the Ninja Professional Blender (affiliate link) – and you’re good to go. Enjoy!
Easy Watermelon Detox Drink
- 2 cups of fresh seeded watermelon cubes (organic, if possible)
- Fresh lime juice to taste (1-2 limes)
1 – Sqeeze the preferred amount of fresh lime into the cubed watermelon.
2 – Place ingredients into a blender.
3 – Blend on high for 45 to 60 seconds until well blended.

That’s it! It couldn’t be easier. You’ll start to feel lighter and refreshed after drinking it. If you purchase a whole watermelon, you can double the ingredients and save it in a pitcher.
