Watermelon Zapper

This juice can be made either with a conventional juicer or with a strong blender. The benefit of blending is all of the phytonutrients and antioxidants are retained, while much of this is lost when the pulp is thrown away with a conventional juicer.

  • 2 cups watermelon cubes
  • 1/3 large lemon, peeled
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons peeled fresh ginger
  • 2 medium carrots (cut into rounds for high-speed blender only)

1. Juice all ingredients in a conventional juicer (makes 1 3/4 cups juice) or in a blender, placing watermelon in first then the remaining ingredients.
2. Turn blender on low until watermelon is liquefied then gradually increase speed.
3. Blend for 2 minutes.


Makes 2 servings (2 1/4 cups juice total.)
