    Stephanie Barlow for the National Watermelon Promotion Board provides tips on how to use watermelon juice.

    Stephanie Barlow: Hi, I am Stephanie Barlow with the National Watermelon Promotion Board and I am going to show you how to make the perfect watermelon juice and my favorite juice recipe watermelon Agua Fresca. For the juice we will just need our blender, our chopped up watermelon bits that can have extra juice in them, and a strainer and a spoon to help separate the pulp. For the Agua Fresca we will use 3 cups of our juice, juice from about one lime, quarter cup of sugar, some fresh mint, and loosely chopped watermelon. Now let's get started. So there is no secret to how to make watermelon juice. All you need is a blender, your chopped up watermelon, plus its juice, and then a strainer. Let's dump the watermelon in, try not to get it all everywhere, put the top on and puree it until well-blended.

    That looks pretty good to me. Now we will pass it through the strainer and this is used to get out the extra pulp or any seeds and it might take a while to pass through.

    After you strained your watermelon juice you are ready to make the Agua Fresca recipe. Your whole family will love this. First, add 3 cups of watermelon juice, next your fresh mint, juice of one fresh lime, quarter cup of sugar, and some loose chopped watermelon. After you've made our Agua Fresca you can pour it immediately over ice or put it in the fridge to chill for a couple of hours. Then pour it and enjoy.
