Watermelon Mixer

This is the most refreshing juice that I've made in my juicer. Of course it's great in summertime, but it's also quite fantastic to mix with some spirits (for example vodka or gin). Mix and serve over ice!

1/4 watermelon
1 apple
1 lime

Watermelon is a rich source of potassium, and with their high water content they are an obvious thirst quencher.

Apples contain malic acid which helps digestion, and are high in pectin that helps lower cholesterol.

Limes are an excellent source of free citric acid, natural sugar, vitamin C, calcium and phosphorus.

Inspired by Wendy, Kathryn and Natalie, encouraging us all to Live A Balance Life.
