Summer Juice/Cocktail Recipe

There is nothing like sitting on the deck barefoot, the sun beating down on your skin with a fresh pressed juice in hand. Watermelon is my favorite fruit of the summer! I think it goes back to when I was a child, and looking forward to slices of cool watermelon after a long day on the water. To this day I love watermelon slices in the summer. 

As an adult, and now a detox queen, I understand the incredible benefits of watermelon. 

  • Watermelon is 92% water, so it keeps you hydrated during those hot summer days

  • This juicy fruit is high in nutrients, vitamins and minerals such as Vitamin C, Vitamin A, Potassium, Magnesium, Vitamins B1, B5 and B6, Carotenoids, and Lycopene

  • Improves heart health, and may lower your risk of a heart attack or stroke

  • Decreases inflammation in the body

  • Relieves muscle soreness, due to the amino acid Citrulline

I love using the extra watermelon after a bbq or gathering to create some fresh pressed juice!
