Easy Watermelon Punch

This watermelon punch recipe brings me back to my childhood. Snacking on juicy slices of watermelon while my brothers and I ran around the backyard, sticky sweetness dripping from our faces… it doesn’t get much better than that!

I like the fact that this watermelon punch recipe is not only refreshing, it’s a healthy alternative to sugary, artificially sweetened drinks because it’s full of vitamin B, antioxidants, potassium and calcium. Plus, it’s super hydrating! Both kids and adults seem to love it. If you want to boost its nutritional content, let your watermelon fully ripen before using.

How To Make Watermelon Punch

Blend – First, take the flesh of the watermelon that you scooped out when making your bowl and throw it in a blender. This takes no time at all and the kids thought it was fun to help…and sneak a piece here and there!

Filter – Pour the blended watermelon through a strainer and toss any solid pieces. After you blend the watermelon flesh, it tends to get a little foamy. Don’t worry, most of the foam gets trapped when you strain it.

Blend Again – Put the watermelon juice back in the blender and add the remaining ingredients. Blend everything together and then pour the watermelon punch into the watermelon bowl and serve.

Recipe Tip – If the watermelon punch has been sitting for a little while, give it a good stir before serving to make sure all of the ingredients are combined before pouring.

How To Make A Watermelon Punch Bowl

Size Matters – Find an oblong watermelon that’s approximately 10 pounds in size.

Clean & Cut – Wash the exterior of the watermelon complete before cutting into it. Cut the top of the watermelon off about 1/6 of the way down from the top.

Remove Insides – Scoop out all of the fleshy insides and save that to be used in your watermelon punch.

Form The Bowl – On the bottom of the watermelon, cut off only enough of that end so the watermelon can stand up on its own. Start off with small cuts because you can always go back and cut more.
