Today’s Summer Slim-Down Recipe comes from the fabulous founders of Project Juice, Marra and Lori! Today they share their Watermelon Berry Juice Recipe, which is Project Juice’s seasonal summer blend!
Watermelon Berry Juice
The perfect summer drink (alcoholic or not)!
- 2 cups watermelon, cubed
- 5 large strawberries
- 1/2 small green apple
- 4 ounces coconut water
- 1/2 lime
Run all ingredients through a juicer and serve chilled or over ice.
Balanced Beauty Health Benefits:
- Lycopene (the phytonutrient in red hued fruits like watermelon and strawberries) acts as a skin protector and has anti-inflammatory properties, to help if you do get too much sun.
- Both watermelon and coconut water are high in potassium which can help replace natural electrolytes and keep you hydrated during warm summer months.
- The high vitamin C content of watermelon and limes will help keep your skin shining and healthy, helping combat the effects of UV rays.
- The cleansing effects of apples helps support healthy liver function even if you are imbibing a bit more at weekend barbecues.
