There is something about watermelon that screams SUMMER! It brings back memories of summer holidays and family barbecues – we would always end up with the sweet, sticky watermelon juice dripping down our arms!
You can avoid sticky arms with this delightfully delicious juice!
Watermelon is around 92% water but is also packed with nutrients and electrolytes (potassium and magnesium) making it a tasty way to keep hydrated in the heat. Plus it has vitamins A, B6 and C and lycopene meaning it has antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties and is good for our eyes, skin and hormone balance. It does have quite a bit of sugar so you should consume it in moderation.
Throw in some carrot with it’s rich dose of beta-carotene and vitamin A and some apple with it’s vitamins C and B and you have yourself a juice that is not only hydrating and refreshing but healthy and tasty too! No nasty preservatives here!
