Juice of one 4-6 pound seedless watermelon
For the agua fresca:
Start by slicing off the top of your watermelon. Using an ice cream scoop, scoop out the flesh of the watermelon and put it in your blender or food processor. Be careful not to overfill!
Working in batches, blend the watermelon pieces into a juice in a blender or food processor. Pour the juice through a fine mesh strainer and into your favorite pitcher or drink dispenser. Chill for 4-6 hours before serving. Store in an airtight container in the fridge up to 3 days.
For the blueberry ice cubes:
Place 3-5 washed blueberries in each compartment of an ice cube tray. Fill with water and freeze until firm, about 8 hours.
This agua fresca would also be delicious served with fresh mint or lime wedges.
If your watermelon is super sweet like mine was, you may be able to dilute the juice with some water to taste. There was roughly a gallon of juice available in the five-pound watermelon I used.
