Watermelon Juice

This Juice is crazy easy, quick and refreshing. And it looks super cool as it is bright pink! YES PLEASE! 

Not only does watermelon taste amazing but it has great health benefits too! I believe you should always know what your eating, so here comes the science bit.... Watermelon is a Lycopene food, along with pink grapefruit and guava. Lycopene is a carotenoid phytonutrient that's important for our cardiovascular and bone health.

Recent studies have confirmed the nutritional importance of allowing a watermelon to fully ripen. The biggest jump in lycopene content occurs at the time when a watermelon's flesh turns from white-pink to pink. And when flesh continues to ripen, resulting in a color change from pink to red, the lycopene content becomes even more concentrated. So! To get the optimum health benefits for your delicious watermelon juice, use a lovely juicy ripe watermelon.  

Watermelon Juice

1/4 Large Ripe Watermelon cut into small chunks
100ml Coconut Water ( if blending ) 
Juice of 1/2 a Lime 

So Simple! Cut the watermelon into small chunks and either pop into a juicer and mix with lime  or use coconut water as a base in a blender. Then sit back and enjoy!
