Watermelon cucumber frequently asked questions (FAQ):
Can I add honey or sugar? This is completely up to you. I like the flavor as is. The watermelon is already sweet. But, everyone’s taste is different. If you see the need to add extra ingredients to sweeten the juice, I recommend honey as it is a healthier alternative.
Can I add chunks of watermelon when serving? Yes, you can. Add the chunks of watermelon to the serving glass. It’s perfect when relaxing.
Can I add crushed ice when blending? I would recommend adding the ice after blending as you do not want this juice to turn into slush. But, if you are going for a slushy drink; especially for the kiddos, by all means, do enjoy!
What does the mint do? Mint provides a fresh earthy taste. It enhances meals, salads, and juice. Adding a bash of fresh mint leaves will brighten up the flavor of the drink. Besides, mint and watermelon work well together.
