Overview

This recipe and recipe info was contributed by Graham - UK.

The melon juice in this recipe acts as a diuretic to cleanse the intestinal system.

Grape juice and strawberry juice contain the powerful antioxidant vitamin C. Antioxidants help against premature ageing and also neutralise free radicals. Free radicals are a contributing factor to heart disease.

Grapes skins also contain the substance 'Resveratrol' which is thought to be converted by the body to a form that may be cancer-fighting. Red grapes contain higher levels of Resveratrol than green grapes.

The aroma is the most important clue detectin the ripeness of a melon. Unless the melon is very cold, it will smell sweet when ripe. Remove the melon skin before putting through your juice extractor and juice all of the ingredients together.

Serve immediately over ice, with a couple of mint leaves, for a nice cool refreshing juice.
