I hope everyone had an enjoyable 4th of July weekend. During the summer months, we all want something that is cool, refreshing, light tasting to the palate and good for you. Over the weekend, I created a refreshing summer cocktail that was pleasing to the taste buds. This juice satisfies the thirst with the quenching flavor of watermelon accented with organic fennel. The mild licorice flavor of the fennel gives this juice just the right zing to enhance the refreshingly taste of this great summer tonic.
My friends enjoyed it and I hope you will too. The fennel is excellent for relieving intestinal antispasmodic symptoms while expelling gas. This vegetable/ herb is anti cancer due to the phytoestrogen compound. Watermelon is also anti cancer, packed with antioxidants and when you juice the rind, you’re receiving chlorophyll that oxygenate the blood and cleanses your system. These two foods together create a dynamic juice. Enjoy the Raw Juice Experience!
