Here’s a quick and simple little treat!
Cantaloupes are a very hydrating fruit. They contain a lot of water and have that refreshingly sweet taste. This is one of my favorite “juices” and it’s made in my blender. No mechanical juicer required!
Take a couple handfuls of green, orange or a mixture of cantaloupe that has been chilled in the fridge and throw them in the blender.
Add a tiny bit of water (about 1/4 – 1/2 cup) and blend until fruit is liquified.
Pour through a strainer (nut milk bag, stainless steel mesh strainer, cheese cloth). This removes the pulpy part of the blended fruit.
The end result… a delicious and thirst quenching juice. Watermelons can also be “juiced” using this method.
This is great way to get fresh this spring, it can be used as a fun drink for those who are doing a “spring detox” and it can be a nice option for pure fluids in addition to water and/or herbal tea. Also, these juices can be poured into popsicle molds and made into popsicles for a healthy and cool treat in the summer months.
Bottom’s Up! 🙂
