Cantaloupe, Lime & Mint Cleanse for Weight Loss
This delectable juice will make you forget you’re cleansing.
Cantaloupe is a brilliant hydrating food, and chock-full of vitamins A and C for cell regeneration and immunity, plus potassium to regulate blood pressure.
Lime lifts the melon magic and helps break down toxins in the liver, and the salt adds alkalizing minerals and accentuates the melon’s sweetness.
Add stevia to taste. Boost with flaxseed oil (you can’t taste it) to get a dose of essential omega fatty acids, and to help calm the lining of the intestines while your system eliminates toxins.
The optional probiotic powder helps balance the sugar of the fruit and aids digestion.
- 1⁄2 cantaloupe, peeled and seeded
- 1 lime, peeled
- 1⁄8 cup mint leaves, plus more to taste
- 1⁄2 cup filtered water
- 1⁄8 teaspoon Celtic sea salt
- 1 teaspoon flaxseed oil
- 1⁄2 teaspoon probiotic powder
- 3 drops alcohol-free liquid stevia, plus more to taste
Push the cantaloupe, lime, mint, and water through your juicer. Strain any pulp.
Stir in the salt, and then the oil, probiotic powder, and stevia boosters, if using.
Cantaloupe Mint Break-Fast Salad
This hydrating and cleansing treat is an excellent way to ease your body back to solid food as melon is so easily and quickly digested.
Cantaloupe contains high levels of antioxidant vitamins A and C to boost immunity and assist with cell regeneration, and potassium to support heart health.
Mint is a terrific detox aid, helping to cleanse the blood and bowels, as well as clearing respiratory congestion. Lime juice is a natural detoxifier and antibacterial agent that improves liver function and can kill certain intestinal parasites.
With melon, high- quality salt is non-negotiable—it brings out the melon’s flavor and strengthens digestion.
- 1⁄2 medium cantaloupe, skin removed, and cut into cubes
- Juice of 1 lime, plus more to taste
- 1 tablespoon finely chopped mint leaves, plus more to taste
- Pinch of Celtic sea salt
In a bowl, combine all of the ingredients, and tweak lime juice and mint to taste.
