Cleansing Watermelon Recipes for Weight Loss


Watermelon Juice
You hardly need a recipe for this it’s so easy – but only  IF you know how! Watermelon juice is a fast way to  alkalize your body using the second most alkaline forming food available.

If you want to know to more, check out the video.

Ingredients:

Watermelon (as much as you want)
Blender
Tall glass

Yes that is all you need.

Directions:

  1. Cut off the rind from the watermelon
  2. Simply cut up watermelon into pieces.
  3. Put into the blender (even if it has seeds in it)
  4. Blend till totally juiced.
  5. If there are seeds then strain while pouring.
  6. Serve this red juice in a tall clear glass as it is so beautiful.

My friend Karuna in India has another way to make it if you do not have a blender.
“Instead of using a blender, simply try mashing the pieces and strain it. You can add watermelon pieces to this and it tastes heavenly.”
