I saw this somewhere on the Internet and thought, Why not? This juice is sweet and refreshing on a hot summer day. And it's so easy to make (one ingredient)! One large cantaloupe yields about 4 cups of juice (I use a Hurom Slow Juicer). It's a great source of beta-carotene, which converts to vitamin A once it's consumed - important for good vision, lung health and cancer prevention. Cantaloupe is also high in vitamin C. Be sure to wash your cantaloupe before you slice it, as bacteria can form on the surface and contaminate the fruit as the knife cuts into it.
1 Cantaloupe (preferably organic)
Cut in half and scoop out the seeds. Remove rind. Cut into chunks to fit in the feeder of your juicer and juice away!
