Canteloupe Juice

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! 

So, grab a canteloupe (I’m eagerly awaiting the ripening of the ones in our garden ~ they’re almost there!!)

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.

    Hi there =) I love cantelope juice too! Speaking on the subject of salt, addice celery to something can add that salty pop you are looking for. It has lots of natural sodium, digestive aids, and can lower blood pressure. Ok so after I started writing this I looked up a website talking about celery… this has to be a wonder food too! http://www.juicing-for-health.com/health-benefits-of-celery.html

    Anyway, good luck on your journey. I am on Day 9 of the reboot, but I am juicing breakfast and midday, having a late-ish lunch of veggies and salads, then jucing for dinner. Seems to work for me so far.

      I’ll definitely try that Jennifer. I didn’t want to “mess” up the flavor so I was a little nervous to add much of anything to it. lol. :) I agree… it is a super food. Thanks for the link, lots of great info!
      Good luck on your journey. I wish I’d been a little bit more relaxed with myself through my reboot, like having some real food. I think it would have been much more enjoyable and I probably would have gone longer. My juice mentor tells me to just think about my cleanse as an ongoing thing and do things every day that help the process.. .so that’s what I’m trying to do. Thanks for stopping by! Don’t be a stranger. :)
