Watermelon Cooler Juice Recipe
This juice recipe is so quick and easy to make providing lots of healthy juice for hydration and cooling down inflammation in the body.
It has a sweet, green, and earthy flavour which I especially like coming from the skin of the watermelon when juiced.
- Leave the skin on for this recipe
- Cut the melon into slices about two fingers wide
- Cut the slices in long strips about three fingers wide
- Juice with skin on
- Cut into chunks to fit down the chute
- Juice with skin on
One of the easiest juices I have ever made.
Just add any combination of watermelon or cucumber pieces one at a time until you have juiced all the pieces.
Make sure you don’t overfeed the machine by adding too many pieces too quickly.
Tip: place the juice in the fridge for a few hours before drinking to enhance the cooling nature of the juice. Some of the soluble fibres will float to the top others will sink to the bottom. Just give the juice a shake or stir before drinking. This is not the same as separation that comes from a fast-spinning juicer.
Watermelon is an excellent fruit for juicing and good for your “melon” (aka head) because it is 93% water that is full of electrolytes and can help hydrate the brain.
Watermelon also cools the body, cleanses the kidneys, and has been shown to purify the skin, promote shiny hair and strong nails.
Watermelon has 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.
Watermelon is also known to significantly reduce inflammation, help flush out edema, aid in weight loss, and alleviate depression.
The skin of the watermelon is equally beneficial to juice as it is one of the highest organic sodium foods in nature and one of the best sources of chlorophyll.
Cucumber juice is highly alkalinizing and very hydrating. When your blood is well hydrated it can carry more oxygen which increases energy levels, kills bacteria and viruses and improves circulation.
Cucumbers can counteract toxins and lift depression; cleanse the blood; quench thirst, moisten the lungs, and purify the skin.
Cucumber juice also cools most inflammatory or heat-related conditions, including stomach inflammation, conjunctivitis, sore throat, acne, and inflamed skin diseases. Hence the saying cool as a cucumber.
Cucumbers are also allies to the liver due to their ability to hydrate it. Your liver’s always in need of living water that’s filled with minerals and other nutrients because your liver keeps your blood hydrated. It relies on sources such as cucumber for that living water.
Plus you get lots of juice without any calories.
