Soft Rock Juice Recipe
This simple two-ingredient juice recipe makes a sweet-tasting juice that is excellent for boosting your immune system because of the high levels of naturally made vitamin C.
Both rockmelon and pineapple are super juicy so you will get lots of fresh juice when pressed through a cold press juicer and it will store in the fridge for 3 days.
I also like to leave the seeds and the surrounding “stringy” flesh inside the rockmelon. As they get pressed through the juicer they provide various important nutrients and add an extra earthy flavour to the recipe.
The two ingredients balance each other well. The flavour was sweet but not overly sweet and there was a soft texture that was very easy to drink.
- 1 rockmelon
- 1 pineapple
Juicing Time: 8 mins
Juice Qty: 1500 ml
Rock Melon (whole)
- Cut a thin layer off the top and bottom
- Stand the rockmelon up on one end and thinly slice off the outer skin (you can juice it but it changes the taste)
- Cut in half and then in half again then into pieces to fit in the wide chute
- You can leave the seeds intact as they easily go through the juicer
- Cut a thin layer off the top and bottom
- Stand the pineapple up on one of the cut ends and then thinly slice off the outer skin (yes, you can juice it but it will change the taste)
- Cut into long thin strips to fit down the chute
- Chop the core into small chunks
Start with the rockmelon peices.
Add them one piece at a time and let the juicer press the fruit through before adding the next piece.
Next, add the pineapple pieces one at a time. Again let each piece press through before adding more.
Leave the core until last. You can add all the core pieces at once.
Tip: Choose both fruits that feel heavy in your hand for maximum juice quantity.
Rockmelons are rock stars when it comes to juicing.
You get lots of juice (it's 95% living water by weight) and very few calories. They are an excellent source of Vitamin A, C, iron, potassium, and calcium to help boost the immune system and hydrate the body.
Rockmelon is a sweet and delicious fruit to juice and is a wonderful way to start your morning. It has over 19 vitamins and minerals that help to boost the immune system, detoxify the organs, and deeply hydrate and alkalinize the body.
The high vitamin C content in rockmelon is critical for immune system support and to fight bacterial and viral infections. Rockmelon is also excellent for helping to relieve nerves and calm anxieties.
Pineapple juice is filled with antioxidants, soluble fibre, and living water which keeps you full and hydrated at the same time. A perfect juice for weight loss.
1 cup of pineapple juice supplies over 50% of the daily amount of manganese, a trace mineral important in energy production and antioxidant defenses.
Pineapple strengthens the immune system. Look at the amour of protection around the flesh. The fruit can take up to 2 years from flower to fruit. It has to outlast all four seasons... twice!!!
A pineapple's resilient, strong, energetic nature gets passed onto us when we consume them.
Pineapple has large amounts of vitamin C like its orange cousin, but it also has bromelain, an enzyme that helps suppress coughs and loosens the mucus that often accompanies colds.
The power of bromelain and vitamin C work together as a bacteria fighter, mucus cutter, cough suppressant, and overall immune system booster in the body.
