Refreshing watermelon iced green tea recipe
Iced green tea is lovely on its own, of course, but this recipe ups the flavor with the addition of watermelon juice.
Make watermelon juice
Watermelon is possibly one of the juiciest fruits and yet it’s rare that we serve watermelon juice. (Why is that??) When fresh watermelon is in season, why not give it a (literal) whirl? Start by placing cubes of seedless watermelon in your blender. Process on low, adding water a little at a time just until the cubes are fully processed into a liquid. Adding too much liquid will water down the flavor.
If you have a watermelon with seeds, process in a similar manner, but strain the juice through a sieve to remove the seeds before using it.
You’ll use two cups of watermelon juice for this recipe. If you have extra, freeze it in an ice cube tray and serve this watermelon green tea over watermelon ice cubes. Or add them to your next fruit smoothie.
