Melon, Grape, Apple and Mint Juice


Although this juice looks like a green juice (a juice with vegetables), this juice has melons, grapes, apple juice and fresh mint. You can use any type of melon you like for this juice. We used honeydew this time, but cantaloupe would be delicious too. We used the Organic Gravenstein Apple Juice from Solana Gold that is available when you customize your box. This melon, grape, apple and mint juice is on the sweet side and even though we didn't put any vegetables in this time, you could add a cucumber or some celery stalks without disrupting the fruit flavors. Enjoy!


(serves 2)

2 cups fresh grapes, removed from stem
2 cups melon, rind and seeds removed
1 cup apple juice (we used Solana Gold)

1 handful mint

Blender/Food Processor Directions: Cut the cantaloupe into chunks and add them to the blender or food processor. Add the grapes and process until smooth. Pour in the apple juice and 1-2 mint leaves and process until combined. Taste and add more mint leaves if desired. Strain into a glass using a colander and enjoy!

Juicer Directions: Feed chunks of cantaloupe and grapes down the chute one at a time until processed. Add a handful of mint. Pour the apple juice into the juicing container with the freshly-juiced cantaloupe and grape. Stir to combine. Pour into a glass and enjoy!
