Watermelon rind is able to be juiced, it is packed with additional nutrients that you would not get with just the flesh alone. If you choose to do this be sure to scrub the rind clean before juicing.
Including the rind in your juice will add a powerhouse of nutrients to your juice but keep in mind your juice won’t be as sweet.

As you can see my juice is more ‘clearer’ than usual and that is because I strained it through a nut milk bag such as this one.
This step is entirely optional, but it’s something that I always do because I don’t like pulp and sediment in my juices. I like it super smooth. Depending on your preference you can choose to skip this step.
That’s it! It is as easy as that – chop, juice and enjoy!
