Today is day 4 of my indefinite juice fast. I would prefer to go a full 7 days but one never knows what adventures the weekend will bring, so tomorrow may be my last full day. Summer is the absolute best time to do a juice fast because there is an abundance of fresh produce and vegetables available and, a since it’s usually hot outside, a big glass of fresh juice always sounds like a good idea. (In winter it is very difficult, at least for me, to juice fast. All I crave is hot cider and baked potatoes.)
Here is one of my favorite juices I’ve been enjoying recently. Only 3 ingredients and a breeze to make! If you are juice fasting, drink the whole thing. If you’re just making as a cocktail or snack, this should serve 2-3 people.
what you need:
- 1 ripe cantaloupe
- 1 small bunch of mint
- about 8 ounces of coconut water
what you do:
remove the rind, scoop out the seeds, and juice the whole cantaloupe along with all the mint, save a few leaves for garnish.
Mix equal parts cantaloupe-mint juice with coconut water. Serve over ice and garnish with a mint leave.
