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!
My current favorite watermelon juice recipe is ….
Watermelon Mint Juice
4 cups of watermelon
1/4 cup of fresh mint
1 inch of fresh ginger (optional)
Wash all ingredients
Run all ingredients through the juicer, and serve over ice!
