Watermelon Juice, No Juicer Required  

Add two-a-days to a hot summer and what do you get? Constant thirst. Seems like I always have a glass in my hand this summer. And as such, I’m bored with my staples, water, seltzer, and Zico coconut water. So when my training partner Meghan—who just finished the NY Ironman just 10 hours and 03 minutes—mentioned her favorite new thirst quencher, I listened up.

The hardest part of making this juice is lugging the watermelon home from the grocery store. The rest is simple: cut the melon in half, scoop out the flesh, and purée it in a blender. I add a handful each of fresh basil and mint and a squeeze of lime to blunt the sweetness. Make sure you buy a seedless watermelon so that you don't have to have to pick out the seeds before blending. 

The juice keeps for about 3 days in the fridge. The herbal flavors intensify over time, making this easy juice even more refreshing.
