Melon for lunch: summer fresh melon juice recipe

Melon for lunch - summer fresh melon juice recipe

Have you ever tried fresh melon juice? Melon is a fantastic fruit for bringing a sense of freshness to the palate and body, particularly whilst the weather is so hot! Pick up a ripe melon, any type will do. We particularly love cantaloupe in this recipe (and keep the wedge of refreshing watermelon for munching on when you want something sweet and juicy). To enjoy a cool juice, you can take the melon from the fridge just before making the juice.

You can enjoy melon juice on its own, but in this recipe we add carrots and kiwi for a complete taste (and nutritional) sensation! Yum!

Melon for lunch: melon juice recipe

Serves: 1
Calories: 159


3cm slice melon – honeydew, cantaloupe, watermelon (your choice)
2 carrots
1 kiwi fruit
2cm unwaxed lemon


First, prepare your fruit and veg by washing the ingredients beneath cold running water. You do not need to peel the carrots, kiwi or melon, just remember to remove any stickers from the skin of the fruit! Kiwi fruit can be a little on the hairy side, so you might also consider trimming the outer skin from the kiwi. If the lemon skin is particularly thick (or if you can only buy waxed lemons) trim the outer skin, leaving behind the white pith.

Put all the ingredients through your juicer. Then pour the juice into a glass and enjoy!

Remember to wash your juicer first.
