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.

This juice tonic is my cold-pressed version of a traditional Indonesian anti-inflammatory drink called Jamu. It can be served slightly warmed on the stove during the winter months or chilled from the fridge.

It is a natural anti-inflammatory tonic with many health benefits from reducing inflammation, aiding digestion and enhancing immunity.

Drink 125ml (1/2 cup) in between meals or first up in the morning.

It has a strong flavour that is sweet and spicey. You can add more coconut water if the flavour is too strong for you.

The recipe will last a week in the fridge in an airtight container. Shake before serving.

Ingredients
1/2 cup fresh turmeric
1/4 cup fresh ginger
1 lime
2 cups coconut water
1 tbsp maple syrup
