WATERMELON LOVE


My juice cleanse is going splendidly. I hope everyone else is feeling good too! This is my third day of just eating fruit and drinking juice. I am doing this to feel lighter, refreshed and give my system a break from heavier foods like nuts, grains and steamed vegetables. I started my day off RIGHT with a giant glass of watermelon juice. I'll give you the recipe in a minute below. Don't the photos just make your mouth water!? Yesterday I just ate fruit because I was lazy, and the day before I had a large glass of carrot apple ginger lemon juice and lots of fruit. Like I said, I'm feeling fantastic so I wanna continue with this cleanse for now. Maybe another day or two. In other news: you can pre-order my cookbook on Amazon and Barnes & Noble! I know! I'm freaking out! In a good way!sexy and satisfying watermelon juice with peppermint:1 watermelon1/4 cup peppermint leaves3 ice cubesChop up the watermelon and then blend it into juice - it will liquify almost immediately. I blended up my watermelon in two batches because it was huge. Strain your juice and then pour it over ice and mint leaves. Slurp! So hydrating and sweet!

  3. I am very interested in a cleanse but am very very new to all of this and have no idea where I could start or what to blend together? Any advice would be helpful. Thank you.

    1. Honestly any fresh fruits or vegetables blended or juiced are perfect for cleaning!

    2. Mostly greens like kale celery and lettuce etc. Use sweet potatoes or carrots to sweeten. If fact u can juice anything depending on what u want to achieve I even juice potatoes beeroot onions mixed with other things. Use organic because non-organic concentrates dangerous chemicals which are usually partially decomposed by cooking. Take at least 4 litres of juice per day. U can also make fruit juice BUT to avoid straining your tummy, avoid mixing fruits and veges at one go cos they need different pHs to digest.

  5. Looks so delicious. I sort of made watermelon juice yesterday with some leftover seeded watermelon, and it was a pain trying to strain out the seeds. Was yours seedless or how did you deal with the seeds? Thanks!

    1. Hmm I think mine was seedless but I imagine just blending up the seeds along with the melon would be fine.

  11. I make the same juice but with coconut water for an added boost! I also have a friend of mine that turned it into a popsicle . . . so light and refreshing. :)

  12. Very delicious and healthy. Basil also goes well with watermelon. The white part of the watermelon is great for the serious juicers like myself. Full of nutrients, we cannot waste it.
