Ginger, Carrot and Melon Juice

I prefer to use a Galia melon for this recipe but you can use whichever melon is in season (such as Honey Dew or Cantaloupe). Just make sure it is ripe. I love the combination of tartness from the lime, the neutral taste of the carrots and the sweetness of the melon, it provides a balanced and delicious drink. If you don't own a juicer you can buy organic carrot juice from a health food store and use a blender instead of the juicer. The juice will be thicker but still delicious (and will contain more fibre). This juice is packed with vitamins and antioxidants and is particularly rich in vitamin A (Beta Carotene) which can help fight against macular degeneration.

You will need a juicer to make this juice.

A very refreshing and delicious drink
