Watermelon Trio - Watermelon Zapper
This juice can be made either with a conventional juicer or with a strong blender, such as a Vitamix. The benefit of blending is all of the phytonutrients and antioxidants are retained, while much of this is lost when the pulp is thrown away with a conventional juicer.
2 cups watermelon cubes
1/3 large lemon, peeled
1 1/2 tablespoons peeled fresh ginger
2 medium carrots (cut into rounds)
- For Juicier: Juice all ingredients in a conventional juicer. Makes 1 3/4 cup juice.
- For Blender Method: In a blender, such as a Vitamix, place watermelon first then the remaining ingredients. Turn blender on low until watermelon is liquefied then gradually increase speed. Blend for 2 minutes.
Makes 2 servings.
