Watermelon Basil Juice Recipe

Jun 17, 2014

I've been craving watermelon juice and Summer ~ 1st day is Saturday, yay!

This is how my almost-Summer morning looked today (not pictured: B, my toddler son, busy bouncing around in his cute striped pajamas). Juice, more juice, fresh watermelon and a cup of coffee from my Chemex. It was a good morning!


Here's the recipe I came up with; a flavorful spin on just plain watermelon juice. We loved it!

Watermelon Basil Juice

1 small watermelon, green removed, rind ok

1/2 bunch fresh basil

1 1/2 limes, green peel removed

2 inch piece fresh turmeric

1 green apple

Fire up your juicer and begin by juicing the limes. Next, tuck the basil leaves between two pieces of watermelon and juice together. Repeat until all basil has been juiced. Finish juicing watermelon. Juice turmeric and then apple. Stir and enjoy!
