by | Apr 6, 2018 | Breakfast Juice, Fruit Juices, Juice Recipes

Description

This refreshing watermelon cold pressed juice is best served by pouring the juice over ice or placing the juice in the fridge for a few hours to chill.

Watermelon and mint are both very refreshing when juiced making them a perfect pairing on a hot summer’s day.
Summer and early autumn are the best seasons for this juice to be enjoyed.

Juicy Benefits

Watermelon is good for your “melon” or your brain as it is 93% water which helps to hydrate the brain. Peppermint is also great for brain function making this juice a powerful drink for mental exhaustion.

Watermelon also cools the body, cleanses the kidneys and has been shown to purify the skin, promote shiny hair and strong nails.

Watermelon has a high levels of lycopene, the bright red carotene that is a powerful antioxidant to neutralise free radicals. It is also high in citrulline and arginine, amino acids that may help lower the risk of heart disease, high blood pressure, and may also help in preventing prostate cancer.

The 93% water content is full of electrolytes that help keep you hydrated and can help with muscle soreness after exercise.

Ingredients

  • ¼ Watermelon (1.7kg)
  • ½ bunch Mint (5g)

Wash the mint in cold water before use.

Preparation

Watermelon (1 min)

  • Thinly slice the outer green skin leaving most of the white flesh intact
  • Cut the melon in long slices about two finger width
  • Cut the slices in long strips about three finger width

Mint (30 sec)

  • remove the leaves from the woody stems

Method

Close the cap on the juicer.

First drop the mint leaves in to coat the inside of the strainer.

Second drop the watermelon strips in one at a time and juice until the bowl is almost full. This mixes the juice well with the mint.

Release the cap.

Continue to juice the remaining watermelon strips with the cap open.

TAMARILLO – this fruit has a slightly sweet & intense flavour. The skin is bitter & as such, usually doesn't get eaten. ❤️

Weekly Cold Press Juice Recipe! 💚
Lettuce In Juice

• 2 cos lettuce hearts
• 2 cucumbers
• 1 celery heart
• 2 apples (red)
• 1/2 lemon

The humble lettuce often gets tossed aside as garnish on a plate. This is a shame because they are packed with nutrients, full of living water and perfect for juicing.

I named this juice lettuce in because it helps lift depression, thin the blood and open up the heart. I specifically used the heart of the lettuce and celery to signify this meaning.

This juice is a great lunchtime juice. Super hydrating, a little bitter and sour taste, perfect if you don't like juices that are too sweet.
