melon-juice.jpg

After making summer fruit salad, we were left with the halves of 3 different melons. So, we cut them up and put them in the fridge to munch on throughout the week, but still, that's a lot of melon. Always trying to come up with exciting uses for any leftovers, I decided to make....melon juice.

Cantaloupe, watermelon and honeydew all have huge water contents which contribute to their bulk in size, so they're a good source of fluids and perfect for making juices. A friend of ours gave us a Magic Bullet blender, so Kenya decided he needed to try it out and do the cooking! First he had to make a juice for himself, then one for me and then, of course, he needed to drink both of them!

And that, is the benefit to a lot of leftovers_ at least I still had enough melon to make another one just for me!
