The Ultimate Summer Elixir: Watermelon-Purple Cabbage Juice


Sounds funky, right?

It's actually extremely refreshing and tastes just like pink lemonade. If you're looking for your go-to, thirst-quenching summer drink, this elixir is it.

Here's the nutritional low-down: Purple cabbage packs a seriously healthy punch loaded with vitamin K, C and B6, while watermelon is loaded with vitamin C. Both are anti-inflammatory among a huge list of other great benefits.

What you need:
• 3 cups purple cabbage

• 1/4 of a large seedless watermelon

• 1 lemon

• 1 cup filtered water

Cut up cabbage and watermelon.

Peel the lemon.

Throw everything in a Vitamix (or super high-powered blender of choice). Strain the drink and enjoy.

(Or if you have a juicer, omit the water and juice the rest of the ingredients.)

Voila. You have now been hydrated.
