Watermelon-Cucumber-Lime Juice

Juicing is a great alternative to eating a meal, but this juice is more of a summer treat on a hot day. The combination of watermelon, cucumber and lime are terrific. Add a few glugs of vodka, tequila or even rum and you're set with a lovely adult beverage. Just be sure and remember that there is plenty of sugar in the watermelon juice, so don't over do it.

Ingredients

  • 8 lbs. of watermelon rind removed and cubed in large chunks (but small enough to fit in your juicer)
  • 1 cucumber organic, rinsed and ends cut off
  • 1 lime quartered and peeled

Instructions

  1. To the juicer, add smaller items first (lime and cucumber) and then add the watermelon. Be careful to watch the juice collector so it doesn't overflow--there will be a lot of "foam."
  2. Once the juicing is complete, remove the foam, stir the juice to combine the flavors and pour in a glass with ice or refrigerate to chill.
