Watermelon Muskmelon Juice-Summer Special Juice Recipes-Easy Summer Drinks

Summer is almost here and you find the markets flooded with summer fruits like watermelons, muskmelons, nongu (palm fruit) etc. I love fresh homemade fruit juice as they are loaded with nutrients needed for a healthy body and mind. This watermelon-cantaloupe juice is perfect to beat the summer heat. This juice is healthy, refreshing, soothing and is an excellent summer coolant. Today we will learn how to make watermelon muskmelon juice following this easy recipe.


Before going to the recipe, I would like to share a few things I learnt about food combining. Fruits can be broadly classified into the following -

Acid Fruits - oranges, strawberry, plums, pineapple, lemon, pomegranates, tangerine and other citrus fruits

Sub Acid Fruits -Apple, papaya, mango, pear, kiwi, cherries, apricot, peach.

Sweet fruits -Banana, sapodilla, dried fruits (dates, figs) etc

Melons -Should be eaten entirely alone

Acid fruits combine well with sub acid fruits but not with sweet fruits.

Sub acid fruits combine well with either acid fruits or sweet fruits but not with both.

Sweet fruits combine well with most sub-acid fruits.

Green leaves combine well with just about anything except melons.
