Step 1

Gather the watermelon flesh. Since it's going to be juiced, there's no need to spend time cutting nice even pieces. You can simply chop the melon in half and scoop out the flesh with a spoon.

Step 2

Perhaps surprisingly, using a juicer for watermelon juice is actually my least favorite method. All you need to do is chop your melon down to size, enough to fit your juicer chute. However, I've found that the remaining pulp is still quite 'wet', so it's not optimal.

Step 3

You may need to do this in batches, based on how much melon you're juicing. Place the watermelon flesh in your food processor/blender and process into a juice. This should only take 30-60 seconds!

Step 4

Then, use a nut milk bag or sieve to remove the broken-up seed pieces and any pulp.

Step 5

Place the watermelon flesh in a large bowl or container (i.e. the one that comes with the immersion blender- but this would need to be done in batches). Then use the blender to blend the flesh into a thick pulpy juice.

Step 6

With this method, the seeds will get crushed too, so you will still need to seive the juice if preferred. Otherwise, you can keep the fiber/pulp in the juice for extra roughage.

Step 7

Place the watermelon flesh in a large nut milk bag. Holding it over a large bowl, squeeze the bag with your hands to manually juice the watermelon. There's no need to go through a second sieve step, as you're already leaving the pulp behind!

Step 8

All you need to make this watermelon keg/ dispenser are a large watermelon, a sharp knife, a blender (immersion or jug), and a tap and stand ( or anything to keep the melon up-right).Tip * Alternatively, if you can't find anything to use as a 'stand', you can cut a very thin layer of melon from the bottom. Just enough to keep it upright, without going all the way through the rind.

Step 9

Cut off the top of the watermelon and set it aside. Then, with a knife or a scooper, break down a bit of the watermelon flesh.

Step 10

Use either a hand-held blender to blend the watermelon juice directly in the watermelon rind or you can scoop out the flesh and blend/juice it separately using the methods above.If you are blending directly in the watermelon, pour it out from time to time and sieve to remove the seeds (not needed if you use a seedless melon). Set the juice aside. Make sure to scoop out all the watermelon flesh from inside the rind.

Step 11

Place the tap in your watermelon keg. Make sure it's low enough so all the juice can be dispensed, then press the tap against the skin to leave a slight mark. You can then use a sharp knife to make an incision - slightly smaller than the mark. Then, Insert the tap through the rind.Pro Tips: Check if there's any flesh that has gotten into the end of the tap - it could potentially block the flow. Also, make sure you close the tap before you pour in the juice.

Step 12

Pour in the sieved juice. You can optionally add some mint and ice cubes. Place the top of the watermelon as a lid. Enjoy your watermelon keg! Pro tip: Make sure the lid doesn't completely block the airflow, as then you cannot use the tap. Leave it slightly open or make a small incision in the back so the air can go in. You're now left with a delicious, fun fruity party drink or healthy treat to enjoy all day long! Plus friends and family are sure to love this creative way to use watermelon!
