I was doing some searching for more ideas for juice recipes. I came across someone talking about canteloupe juice.
Canteloupe is a pretty amazing melon:
- One cup of cantaloupe is just 56 calories, but provides 103.2% of the daily value for vitamin A.
- Canteloupe is an excellent source of Vitamin C.
- Cantaloupe is a very good source of potassium and a good source of vitamin B6,dietary fiber, folate, and niacin (vitamin B3).
All of these things translate into better eye health, and lung health, better heart health, and stress reduction.
On top of that… it tastes fantastic!
Wash it really well (you’re going to use the rind seeds and all).
Cut into pieces that will fit in your juicer ~ juice away.
I found 1/2 a canteloupe made a quart of juice. I added a little lime juice ~ and a little salt. Not sure if that’s breaking the rules, but I eat salt on my canteloupe and I feel like it really makes the flavor pop.
It feels a little weird not to mix it with a bunch of stuff ~ but with all the health benefits, who can argue. I’ve enjoyed a glass of canteloupe juice for breakfast two mornings in a row now. It’s very refreshing. Even more so when you serve it over ice, very cold. YUM.
Canteloupes are in season, I was able to find them pretty cheap… but juicing overall can be expensive. There is a way you can get your groceries for free. It’s what I’m doing.
