Ingredients
1 well-ripened watermelon, cubed
Ice
Fresh basil, optional
Sugar or stevia, optional

Directions
Fill your blender with the watermelon cubes.  Blend until smooth, then strain the liquid through a strainer to remove the pulp.  Pour the strained liquid back into the blender and add ice. Blend again and serve in chilled glasses. You may also add a little fresh basil to the mix.

You may want to add in a little sugar or stevia as well depending on how ripe your melon is.  This drink is fantastic for a breakfast pick-me-up as well as a party drink.

1 blender full of fresh watermelon will yield about 1 quart of juice after blended and strained.
