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.

  • ½ bunch Mint (5g)

Wash the mint in cold water before use.

Method

Weekly Cold Press Juice Recipe! 💚

Summer Sun

• 1/2 pineapple
• 6 apricots
• 1/2 lemon
• 1 piece ginger (2cm)

Pineapple and apricot together make great jam so why not make a juice with them. It really does feel like you are making your own glass of liquid sunshine when you make this recipe.

This juice tastes delicious. A beautiful fruity flavour with a sweet aroma and a smooth, silky texture. The little bit of ginger in there adds a nice, punchy after taste as well. Super YUM!!!
