Watermelon Juice Junkie

Juicing at home can be a PAIN in the ass. I know. When I first got my juicer I attempted to make fresh juice every day but I got fed up with cleaning the damn thing quite quickly. I still love to make fresh juice though, especially since the ones they sell at the market are IMPOSTORS. (like, where’d all that damn sugar come from?)

So one of my favorite things to do lately is just juice a whole bunch at once and just try to drink it over the next few days. The best way to do this is watermelon. Like juice a whole freaking watermelon, and then juice a little of some other things and mix it up a little. (or add prosecco, no judgement here.)

Benefits of fresh watermelon juice:
