Watermelonberry Juice Pick Me Up

"For that fast pick me up in the morning or when you need a refreshing tonic, this is the juice for you. I like this in the morning to rev up my engines and to supply me with an abundance of anti oxidents. Watermelons are in nature an excellent source of vitamins A, C, and B6. They are also a great source of potassium, and extremely low in sodium. Blueberries are packed with antioxidant phytonutrients called anthocyanidins, blueberries neutralize free radical damage to the collagen matrix of cells and tissues that can lead to cataracts, glaucoma, varicose veins, hemorrhoids, peptic ulcers, heart disease and cancer. Anthocyanins, the blue-red pigments found in blueberries, improve the integrity of support structures in the veins and entire vascular system. Anthocyanins have been shown to enhance the effects of vitamin C, improve capillary integrity, and stabilize the collagen matrix (the ground substance of all body tissues). They work their protective magic by preventing free-radical damage, inhibiting enzymes from cleaving the collagen matrix, and directly cross-linking with collagen fibers to form a more stable collagen matrix. This is great for young and old alike! For the young at heart----------a wee bit of the nectar can be added such as vodka, rum, you decide for a refreshing cocktail."

directions

  • put all in blender or juicer and blend til smooth. You will have some chunks from the berries if frozen and it only adds to the enjoyment.
  • This can be frozen for popsicles as well without the added sugars.
  • options: any berry will do such as strawberry, blackberry, boysenberry. You could also mix this with some lime juice instead of lemon. Such a versatile juice and great for low sugar, low fat drinks for yourself or the kids.
  • I like it frozen on a hot day!
  • To make a slushie, just mix and pour into a plastic cup, freezer ready and food grade, freeze for 35-45 min, take out and mush for slushie effect.

    This was fine as is but I didn't have a great watermelon so I added a bit of honey to try and compensate for it. I used a good quality frozen mixed berries (lots of blueberries some blackberries, raspberries and strawberries) I also used freshly squeezed lime juice mentioned in the instructions as an option. Made for the group Beetroot in RECIPE SWAP #42 - July 2010 -

    Great Flavor! I've never had watermelon in combination with blueberries, but it is delicious. I substituted 1 teaspoon of Splenda in lieu of lemon juice. It makes a pretty beverage and would be great to serve to guests. Prepared as a participant in the Aus/NZ Swap #41 June 2010 Event.

    This made a great afternoon drinky Connie. I followed your recipe as written and it was perfect in proportion. My only complaint is that it wasn't enough:-) Made for AU recipeswap!~

<p><img src=http://i80.photobucket.com/albums/j184/cjmcqb/Family/IMG_0556-1-1-2-2.jpg alt=width=58 height=116 /><br />I have been married to the most wonderful man for 34 years. He is my best friend and the love of my life, my soulmate, and everyday he makes me smile!&nbsp; We have two wonderful children, both adults, and both the loves of our lives.&nbsp; We are so proud of them!<br /><br />I want to say <strong>THANK YOU</strong>&nbsp; <img title=Laughing src=/tiny_mce/plugins/emotions/img/smiley-laughing.gif border=0 alt=Laughing />&nbsp; to all of you who try my recipes. I may not always get back with a Thank you in writing but I want you to know I do thank you very much. I appreciate any and all comments, it can only help me learn and become a better chef. <br /><br />I love to travel and see anything and everything. When summer comes, I am off to see. DH and I traveled across country several times and our children are seasoned travelers as well. Road Trip are 2 of my favorite words. The kids and I have done a few trips as well down the eastern seaboard and there are plans for more. Both DD and DS are gypsies as well and think nothing of taking a road trip to visit home or each other. LOVE IT <br /><br />I live in Western New York and love it here, snow and all. I am a special education teacher and enjoy my career. The sense of wonder and gratification comes daily. My favorite pastime is spending time with my family! I also love to read, listen to music and watch good movies. We have Friday night pizza night here, which means I do not cook! I love Friday's. I started this custom when my children were small and we would cuddle on the floor and play games together and eat pizza. (Highly recommended for all moms out there, dads too.) I LOVE THAT! <br /><br />My favorite cookbook has changed since I came to Zaar, it is now the Zaarworld cookbook. I can get everything I need here and then some, to cook up meals for family and friends. One passion of mine is to cook homestyle meals for family and friends, holiday dinners, and baking bread. <br />My pet peeve is rudeness. INTOLERABLE! <br /><br />Some of the Contests and Swaps I have participated in and thoroughly enjoyed! <br /><br /><br /><img src=http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/projects/final2_1.jpg
