Preparation

  • Active

  • Ready In

  1. Combine watermelon, water, lemon juice, ginger, turmeric, honey, oil and pepper in a blender. Puree until smooth, about 1 minute.
  • Look for fresh turmeric in natural-foods stores, near its similar-looking relative, fresh ginger. Remove the skin with a vegetable peeler. You can swap 1 Tbsp. finely grated fresh for 1 tsp. dried and vice versa.
