Whenever honeydew is in season, I get super excited and this honeydew melon juice is the first thing I make with them. I like to make a huge batch of Honeydew Juice and store it in a large airtight mason jar. It never lasts too long in my fridge because I can’t help but drink it several times throughout the day. It is so hydrating and packed with incredible nutrients!

How To Make Honeydew Juice

Juicing honeydew melon is easy. Of course, you can use a juicer, but a blender works even better. All you do is blend the ingredients with water, then strain the juice through a fine mesh strainer. Use a spoon to press any juice from the pulp through the strainer or squeeze the cheesecloth tightly to remove any liquid. Pour into a glass and enjoy!

Making juices with a blender produces significantly less waste and pulp. Plus, no juicer means one less appliance taking up space in the kitchen.

Tips For Making The Best Honeydew Melon Juice

  • Use Ripe Honeydew. Honeydew is ripe when the color is more yellowish than green, and when you smell the melon it has a light sweet smell.
  • Keep Your Honeydew In The Fridge so that it is cold when you are ready to make the juice.
  • Use Cold Water, especially if you want to drink the juice right away.
  • Honeydew juice is best enjoyed when cold. Store it in the fridge to keep cold and serve with ice cubes (optional).
