Water Cooler | Watermelon and Grapefruit Juice Recipe

Man do I love grapefruit in my juices like the Water Cooler juice recipe, but I just don’t like peeling them. The best way I’ve found to peel grapefruit is to use my hand peeler. It’s like this one – OXO Good Grips Swivel Peeler.

This beautiful, sweet, but tart juice recipe comes from one of my favorite books, The Big Book of Juices. I made this one in the mornings for Virginia and she used to say, “Ewwweee! You’re juicing the rind on the watermelon?” And of course I said, “Yes, I’ve always done it that way, because the rind helps to push the watermelon through the juicer.” Maybe this juice would be better without the rind for you. I think it’s a matter of personal preference, so try it without the rind if you’re thinking, Ewwweee!

The trick to this one is getting the thick slice of watermelon right. Personally I like this one a little more tart, so I use a smaller slice and I juice the rind. Try it and taste as you go along to get it right for yourself. It’s a real energy booster and 4 out of 5 stars for immunity in the book,  The Big Book of Juices.

Makes approximately 32 ounces (depending on how big your watermelon slice is)

  • 2 grapefruits
  • 1 thick slice of watermelon

Watermelon health benefits: Watermelons are mostly water — about 92 percent — but this refreshing fruit is soaked with nutrients. Each juicy bite has significant levels of vitamins A, B6 and C, lots of lycopene, antioxidants and amino acids. There’s even a modest amount of potassium. – Livescience.com

Note: If you’re taking medication consult your health care professional. It’s been known for some time that grapefruit juice can interact badly with some medications.
