Is seedless or seeded watermelon better for juice?
Either will work well, so choose your favorite. Seeded watermelon may add a slight crunch, but the soft seeds blend up easily. Straining the juice will remove any seed particles.
Can I add other fruit to watermelon juice?
Absolutely! Blend watermelon with fruits like apple, lime, strawberry, or pineapple for extra flavor. Get creative with combinations. The Vitamix makes it easy to mix and match. Just be sure to strain out the pulp after.
Can I add ice to my watermelon juice to make it more refreshing?
Definitely! Adding ice while blending can chill your watermelon juice, making it extra refreshing and slightly slushy. Feel free to adjust the amount of ice to achieve your desired level of coldness and consistency.
