After being on a Vitamix kick for about a year now, I recently purchased myself a Breville juicer and have been having SO much fun whipping up different juice creations! My Minty-Melon Morning Green Juice has been my favorite so far, and has been one that even my non-green-juice-drinking husband has really enjoyed.
Kale is a nutrient powerhouse, a serious superfood, and is loaded with vitamins such as A, K, and C, and minerals like calcium and manganese. It's one leafy green you need to incorporate into your daily diet for sustained energy and optimal nutrition. With my husband and I not being huge fans of kale in liquid form, the cantaloupe in this recipe is sweet enough to hide the sometimes bitter kale taste, so you get the best of both worlds: optimal health and subtly sweet, delicious flavor.
The best part about this juice is that the nutritional value doesn’t stop at the kale. Cantaloupe is loaded with beta-carotene, which converts to vitamin A in the body. The vitamin and nutrient content found in the kale and cantaloupe, combined with hydrating and refreshing cucumber and mint, make this Minty-Melon Morning Green Juice a fabulous way to give your cells the proper nutrients and energy they need to help your body get through a hectic day.
