Today’s treat: cantaloupe juice. High in anti-oxidants and anti-inflammatory nutrients, especially vitamins A and C and potassium. We juice it rind and all, but cut out the seeds. Some folks suggest juicing the seeds and adding pineapple juice for a nut drink and I might try that next time.
You’ll need a good juicer and nicely ripe fruit. Clean the rind well—we soak it in vegetable wash and then scrub it with a brush. I’d go organic here because I never feel I get all the dirt off the rind.
Drink a small glass a day—the serving I show here is about half a cup, which is about 1/8th of a cantaloupe. All juices are high in sugar, so don’t overdo.
