apple-cantaloupe-kale-chard juice


Apple, Cantaloupe, Kale and Chard

“Oh my gosh… I had a very, very naughty nap and woke up soooooo HUNGRY! I am secretly wishing my man will bring me back a portobello burrito from town despite me telling him not too but know he won’t, so I’m going to have to make another juice. Damn ;)”

So that was my facebook status half an hour ago. I was right, no burrito for me so I dragged my sorry bum off the sofa and made juice. After having a very vegetable-tasting juice today I wanted something with more fruit so went with the apple-cantaloupe-kale-swiss chard combo. On the Reboot Your Life site it actually calls for 1/2 cantaloupe and 1/2 honeydew but couldn’t get an organic honeydew yesterday so went with a whole cantaloupe instead.

This juice is very green to look at but sweet and is a nice contrast from beets! I did some research into whether I should juice the cantaloupe seeds too and a dodgy Google search suggests the answer is yes. I also didn’t realize that cantaloupe was so good for you!  They contain all sorts of goodies including protein, dietary fiber, vitamin E, magnesium, phosphorus, potassium and iron. Read more (or actually everything you ever wanted to know) about cantaloupes at George Mateljan Foundation’s Worlds Healthiest Foods website – I found it tonight and love it!!

Again, the recipe makes 1 liter – I had half of it tonight for dinner and I’ll have the other half for breakfast :)

Ingredients:

  • 2 apples
  • 1/2 cantaloupe
  • 1/2 honeydew
  • 6-8 leaves kale
  • 6-8 leaves swiss chard
