I used the “liquefy” button on my machine to help reduce too much pulp. If you’re not into pulp at all, cover a bowl with cheesecloth and pour the liquid over it, discard the pulp and save your bowl of juice. Pour over a glass of ice and enjoy! This is so refreshing and a great way to sneak in a few servings of fruit!
Feeling a little sassy? Add a splash of vodka to this beverage!
Random piece of knowledge? If you haven’t already guessed “sandia” translates to “watermelon”. The mountain range in east Albuquerque are called the Sandia Mountains because on clear days, as the sun sets the mountains look pink – like a watermelon!
