ANTI-AGING WATERMELON GINGER DETOX JUICE RECIPE
We hope you froze some of those peak summer strawberries (or bought some frozen ones) to use in this easy and refreshing anti-aging detox juice!
The ginger will warm you up, and the watermelon serves to cool you back down and hydrate your body and skin. Though we used strawberries in this recipe, you can also use blackberries if they are more available.
This drink will be super easy in a Vitamix or Blendtec blender, but you can use a regular blender as well – just strain the solids out at the end before serving.
This detox juice is refreshing any time of year, you will definitely want to add it to your favorites!
- 2 cups fresh watermelon
- 1 cup fresh or frozen strawberries or blackberries
- 1/2 fresh lime juiced
- 1/4 teaspoon ginger fresh preferred

GINGER HEALTH BENEFITS
Ginger has been long-renowned for it’s cleansing effects on the digestive tract. In herbal medicine, ginger is regarded as an excellent carminative (a substance which promotes the elimination of intestinal gas) and intestinal spasmolytic (a substance which relaxes and soothes the intestinal tract).
Further, ginger has proven to effectively relieve nausea and abdominal pain during pregnancy.
Recent research has also confirmed that ginger can prevent motion sickness better than Dramamine!
