Watermelon juice has a delightful cooling property and watermelon’s water content is refreshing during hot summer days.
I love to just devour chilled watermelon pieces, but I hate to discard those rinds that still have lots of juicy and nutrient-rich liquid in them.
Did you know that most of nutritional content in the watermelon is in the rind? It contains chlorophyll, vitamin A, protein, potassium, zinc, iodine, nucleic acids and enzymes which aid digestion.
Well, you don’t have to throw away that rind! Simply juice it, instead!
If you don’t enjoy watermelon rind juice because it doesn’t taste as good as the pink flesh, then add other fruits to the juice (you can make delicious green juice with it!) or blend the juice with other fruits into a smoothie. Read more here……
There are many variations of this green juice recipe that you may want to try – almost every book on the subject of diet and nutrition gives some version of this green cocktail. Green juices are unbelievably good for you, so good, in fact, that we should all be drinking them daily in the morning, instead of the coffee or milk. They are great immune system boosters. So, if you are willing to try a great juicing recipe for green vegetables and kale that will give you lots of energy, here it is.
1 head romaine lettuce or celery
5-6 leaves of kale (you can add some other greens too, such as spinach, dandelion, or parsley)
1-2 apples or pears (green apples are less sweet, more tart)
1 lemon (if not organic, then the lemon should be peeled)
1 cup of spinach leaves
1/4 of a small cabbage
1/4 to 1/2 ripe Hawaiian papaya (1/2 results in a sweeter juice)
1 handful of cilantro or parsley (or both for deeper green juice)
1 handful of fennel (stalk can be used too)
Here are some carrot juice recipes to inspire you.
Carrots add wonderful sweetness to green juices. Dandelion helps to flush toxins from the system and improves the liver function. It is recommended for the liver cleansing diet. Alternate these with green juice cocktail for best results.
If possible, use organic fruits and vegetables in your recipes. You can buy organic produce in many grocery stores, at farmers’ markets or you can simply grow your own. However, if you cannot find them, or you feel they cost too much – just use what you have.

The juicer that I currently use (BTW it’s the same as filmed in the Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead documentary) is Breville Juice Fountain JE98XL which you can find on Amazon or in any store that carries kitchen appliances. If you’re on the market for a juicer, it's a good juicer to consider.
