When you select your water melon, thump it so you hear a hollow thump on each thump. This is full of juice, & very sweet. Whether it has reproductive seeds in it, is another thing.
Place your melon on a cutting board, & slice the melon in half. Turn melon on side & cut off rind.
After that, lay it back on it’s side & cut your rounds. That’s it, works every time.
The juicier the melon, the easier it will be to split. This one fell apart as I put the knife in it.
Trim as needed.
For the pieces that aren’t round, you can make one heck of a smoothie or frozen drink (alcohol optional of course).
Put as much water melon in the 72 oz Ninja (or any large) blender as you can fit, & let it sit for an hour or two. If you selected a real juicy water melon, you’ll have a couple ounces of juice. Blend this on smoothie. Yields about 65 ounces. Drink it as is if you’d like or.
2 Cups cold water
1/2 a packet of watermelon strawberry flavoring
2 Tbsp sweet N low
Makes a wonderfully refreshing drink.
I didn’t vacuum seal the drink this time, but you certainly can, as it’ll do the flavor saving thing this blender is good at doing.
2 Cups vodka, rum or tequila
Smoothie melon. Stir in alcohol slowly
Half a picture of crushed ice
2 C alcohol
Liquify melon, add ice, hit smoothie. Stir in alcohol.
Option 3B Sparkling Virgin Version
Replace alcohol with a sparkling soda like 7 Up.
Yeah, for the food blog <sip>.
Sit back wit a nice tall glass.
Mint leaves optional
