This juice is not just pretty to look at – it tastes amazing and is packed with vitamins, too! This recipe calls for grenadine, which is a sweet, red syrup made from pomegranate.

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
300g watermelon, rind removed, diced roughly
5 oranges, peeled and quartered
15g mint leaves
5 large ice cubes
1 tablespoon grenadine
2 sprigs mint, to garnish

Method

  1. Position the jug of your juicer underneath the juicer spout.
  2. Switch the juicer on and carefully feed in the watermelon, orange quarters and mint leaves. If your juicer’s jug is too small to hold all of the juice in one go, feed in the fruit in batches and transfer the juice into a larger jug.
  3. Using a spoon, skim off and throw away any foam sitting on top of the juice. Add the ice to the jug and mix well. Divide the juice between 2 tall glasses, using a spoon to prevent the ice from falling in.
  4. Measure the grenadine into a small glass. Use a drinking straw to suck up half of the grenadine – try not to drink any! With two fingers, tightly pinch the top of the straw and place the straw into the bottom of one glass of juice. Relax your grip on the straw – this will release the grenadine at the bottom of the glass. Repeat this process for the second glass of juice.
  5. The grenadine is heavier than the fruit juice, so it will sit at the bottom of the glass while the fruit juice floats on top!
  6. Garnish with the sprigs of mint and serve immediately with a straw in each glass. Mix well before drinking.
