Work has been unfortunately slow for me this month. So the other day, I took off in the morning and went to the gym. I have no motivation to work out by myself so I always go to those groupX classes, cuz I need someone to tell me what to do. I LOVE Lesmills bodycombat classes though, you’ll sweat like crazy but you’ll feel so accomplished afterward. Every time I work out is an extra piece of pie and an extra scoop of ice cream allowance for my tummy. But that day, I wanted something cold and refreshing. Fresh strawberry melon juice perhaps?
I had left over honey dew in the fridge, weird crazy orange flesh one that I posted on instagram last week. And tons of strawberries (from Costco no less), I was making a strawberry cream pie. 🙂 Recipe will be up in the near future. And of course my juicer in the back corner of the kitchen collecting dust…
It’s probably been a year since I last used it. I jumped on the juicing train last year for maybe a MONTH! And then I got lazy and mostly hungry, really really hungry… Some days I felt like I could eat a cow. I never even had the courage to try those green recipes that called for kale and garlic and ginger and whatnots… I decided I prefer my veggie and garlic sauteed with a sprinkle of salt. But fresh strawberry melon juice I can do. Naturally sweet, refreshing and enjoyable! Most importantly, none of the ingredients have the capacity to gross you out.
- 12 oz ripe melon (honeydew or cantaloupe)
- 4 oz strawberry
- Slice fruits into 1/2” slices and pass through a juicer.
- If using blender, chop into cubes and blend until smooth. Strain the pulp or not, fiber is good for you.
- Pour over ice and serve immediately.
