Celebrate Watermelon Day (8/3) With These Recipes & WTRMLN WTR
I love watermelon so when I found out there is a day to celebrate this delicious fruit I was thrilled. I received an email recently from the folks at WTRMLN WTR. Have you heard of them? Before this email I had not, WTRMLN WTR is Beyoncé’s line of original cold-pressed watermelon juice. To me this sounds absolutely delicious! If you like watermelon as much as I do, I’m sure you’ll enjoy these recipes to help you celebrate Watermelon Day!
As you know, watermelon is wonderfully versatile, lending itself to both sweet and savory and shape-shifting between solid and liquid. WTRMLN WTR has compiled these recipes that show off the melon’s many qualities. I am excited that they have allowed me to share these recipes and their pictures with you. Enjoy!
1 cup sushi grade ahi tuna (or fish of choice)
½ cup chopped WTRMLN
¼ cup sliced mango
½ cubed avocado
2 tablespoons ponzu sauce
1 tablespoon tamari
2 tablespoons nori seaweed
1 teaspoon fried onion pieces
sesame seeds (to taste)
Allow fish to marinate in ponzu sauce until flavor evenly coats fish. Add all other ingredients and stir lightly. Top with sesame seeds and friend onion pieces. Enjoy with WTRMLN GNGR and a friend.
1 + 1/4 cup of fresh watermelon slices
½ cup WTRMLN WTR
½ cup coconut milk (or alternative milk of choice)
Puree 1 cup of chopped WTRMLN slices with ½ cup WTRMLN WTR and pour into Popsicle molds so molds are 2/3 full. Freeze for 30 minutes and pour chilled coconut milk on top of frozen watermelon blend. Top with remaining watermelon slices and freeze for an additional 30 minutes. Rinse molds under warm water to release Popsicle and enjoy somewhere near a pool or beach.
