Watermelon Juice with Basil Seeds (Tukmaria seeds) - Summer Cooler

If I happen to go to the grocery with DD2 I cannot get back without carrying a big load on my shoulder - yes a watermelon. Around here watermelon is available all year around but usually at a much higher price during the winter months. Summer months watermelons are cheaper and I can satiate DD2's unfulfillable love of watermelons.

While eating them sliced is perfect, juicing them and drinking ice cold is even better. Adding a tsp or a couple of basil or chia seeds depending on how much you like those seeds adds a welcome crunch.

While making water melon juice does not require a recipe here it is anyway.
