Drinking freshly pressed juice is just so healthy for you, and with a little effort you will soon be guzzling down a glass or two of this delightful concoction.
You will need:
1/3 fresh seedless watermelon
pint of washed blueberries
8 organic carrots, well scrubbed, but not peeled, and cut into 1 inch pieces
2lb tub of medley of fruits from Publix, already chopped because I am
Squeeze of lemon, suggested but not necessary.
Because the carrots are rather fibrous I make sure that I put a few pieces in and then follow up with softer, juicier fruits, repeat, repeat. This way the juicer doesn't come to a grinding halt - excuse the pun, couldn't resist.
