Watermelons are a childhood favourite of mine. I tried mixing watermelons and green apples today to balance out the sweetness .
Ripe watermelons are a wonderful source of lycopene. The lycopene levels of watermelons store well even up to 7 days in well refrigerated conditions. Lycopene is a well known oxidant with the ability to neutralize free radical molecules. It also contains a good amount of Vitamin C and vitamin A. It also contains potassium and magnesium.
Apples are a good source of polyphenols which function as antioxidants. Most of the nutrients of the apples are actually concentrated on the skin. When buying non-organic apples, one must be sure to wash the apple thoroughly while brushing with a bristle brush to get rid of the wax on the apple.
Watermelon and Apple Juice
½ of a chilled watermelon
3 chilled green apples
This is a refreshingly cool drink and none too sweet.
Suggestions: Drink within 30 minutes of juicing to retain freshness.
