Watermelon Raspberry Quencher

Summary
watermelon-raspberry-juiceIt’s hot out there! Luckily, heat can be beat with the help of your trusty juicer. When you juice up fresh fruits and veggies, you’re replenishing your body’s reserves of vitamins and minerals. Today we’re looking at a juice that is as hydrating as it is nutritious. After all, where there’s hot weather, there’s the potential for significant fluid loss. 

Watermelon is a great hot weather fruit. It’s also practically made for juicing. Due to its natural sweetness and very high water content, watermelon yields quite a bit of juice and plays well with others. Today we’ve combined it with raspberries. Raspberries are considered a super food due to their high concentration of antioxidants and vitamins.

The natural tartness of raspberries is played up in this recipe by the presence of acidic, mouthwatering limes. Together, the raspberries and lime balance out the sweetness of the watermelon. Make this juice on a hot day and serve it to your kids – they’ll love it without even realizing that they’re being healthy!

Ingredients

  • 2 Limes
  • ½ Watermelon
  • 2 Cups of raspberries

Directions

  • Wash all ingredients
  • Juice the limes and berries.
  • The watermelon can be juiced either with the rind on or removed. The rind contains the majority of the nutritional value found in watermelon. However, it’s also significantly less sweet than the red interior which most of us are familiar with. We recommend adding a bit of rind at first and seeing if you can abide the taste.
  • Pour juice over ice and enjoy.
