I am all about watermelon this time of year! I posted a Watermelon Strawberry Green Smoothie recipe a couple of weeks ago, I ate half of a personal watermelon for breakfast yesterday, and today, I’m sharing with you an awesome Watermelon Green Juice recipe!
Honestly, I don’t think anything says July more than a fresh juicy watermelon!
Watermelon is more than just a seasonal favorite, though! It’s packed with vitamin C, vitamin A, and antioxidants, like the same lovely phytonutrient found in tomatoes, lycopene! Doesn’t that sound like a great boost to your everyday, already nutrient-packed green juice? I sure think so!
- 1/4 personal watermelon
- 1 cucumber
- 3 celery stalks
- 1 handful spinach
- 1/4 lemon
- 1″ ginger chunk
1. Wash your veggies well, scoop the watermelon from the rind, and remove the peel from the lemon.
2. Run everything through your juicer once or twice. Tip: I tend to juice everything a second time, and get quite a bit of leftover juice out of the pulp.
Overall, this still mostly tastes like a regular green juice (aka delicious!), with a splash of watermelon. Personally, I liked it just as it is, but if you want a more pronounced watermelon flavor, feel free to add another 1/4 of the watermelon to your juice blend.
Hope you love it!
PS. What’s your favorite use for watermelon??
