Hello there. I decided the other day to make fresh watermelon juice since it’s not something you just run across in the grocery store. It was really simple. I used a strainer, pitcher, and my ninja blender. I always keep my watermelon in the fridge so it was already cold. I cut the meat of the watermelon into small enough pieces to fit several inside the blender pitcher seeds and all. Then I let it rip. Once there was more room I added more of the watermelon meat and blended again. I then poured the watermelon slush over my strainer into the empty pitcher. This step took patience as it takes a little while for the juice to drain through the strainer. Then you have your fresh watermelon juice ready to serve. If I wasn’t pregnant I would make a killer cocktail. I envision a watermelon margarita. What do you think? Below are the pics of each step. Hope you enjoy!

This morning I woke up and decided to re-create one of my favorite sweet treats. The Mango Pineapple Smoothie that I occasionally get from McDonald’s. It so juicy, sweet, smooth and icy. A perfect refreshing treat for the middle of the day.
Since my wonderful hubby purchased me a new Ninja Blender (link below) I have been experimenting with various recipes. Here is how I made my version of McDonald’s.
I put in 1 cup of Central Market’s Organic Apple Juice
1/2 cup of frozen organic Mango chunks from Costco
1/2 cup of frozen pineapple chunks from Costco
1/2 cup of ice
Then I turned the Ninja blender on 3 and let it go until I had my smoothie. It may be necessary to add a little more juice if it is not the consistency you want. The ice gives it a tiny bit of crunch.
Hope You Enjoy !
