Oh my goodness! Another year older today!

Done with my juice cleanse and I’m so ready to throw down in my kitchen this Friday – Paleo Style! If you checked out my Kiwi Salad Juice Recipe you’ll know that I’m having a little gathering with my real close buddies. Definitely planning to post some of the recipes soon!

For anyone who has done a juice cleanse, going through one right now or possibly looking to do one in the future; be prepared to get somewhat tired of juice – vegetable juice to be exact. Personally, for each cleanse I’ve had, by day 4 I’m already tired of drinking vegetables!

This is where my “dessert” juice comes in. Sometimes, you just need a palette refresher, a reviver, something to make you feel like you can take another 20 litres of vegetable juice and not feel like you’re going to become spinach by the time you’re done.

I only recently discovered I could juice squash and I think it’s been the best discovery of the year (LOL). It has such a comfortingly sweet taste, a little bit creamy and just so pleasant to drink. Adding the melon just makes this is a delight!

This recipe is really basic as I made it for my juice cleanse however, feel free to take this to a-whole-nother level: maybe add some sparkling (seltzer) water, limes, a cucumber or just make it the base for another vegetable juice. Actually, forget the last bit because that just defeats the whole purpose!

I noticed on Twitter there’s a #JuicingJanuary going on – made me so happy to see other people taking on juicing for the new year! By the way, you should totally follow me @WhittyPaleo. Will you be trying out some juices this January?

Melon Butternut Squash Dessert Juice for Juice Cleanse
Course: Beverages
Cuisine: Paleo
Servings: 3 servings
Calories: 42 kcal
Author: WhittyPaleo
Ingredients
  • 1/2 medium sized Melon peeled and deseeded
  • 1 medium sized Butternut Squash peeled and deseeded*, 800g
Instructions
  1. Cut your melon and butternut squash to a size big enough for your juicer and just juice! Make sure to alternate between the melon & squash to help push the produce out well.
Recipe Notes

You can use either a cantaloupe, galia or honeydew melons.
You can also mix up the ratios of melon to squash to your liking! It will still taste awesome!
* If your juicer can handle the skin of the butternut squash then you don't have to peel or deseed! I would suggest cutting it up into smaller chunks though!

    Hi Whitney

    I completed my juice cleanse last week and now am juicing in the mornings and eating paleo the rest of the day so this sounds awesome! Just one question: Did you have to peel your squash before juicing it or can it go in just as chunks? I know I’d peel the melon so just wondering if it’s the same for squash or if the skin is thin enough for the machine to handle it.

    Really can’t wait to try it.

      Hi Helen! Woop you did a juice cleanse, how do you feel?! Ah with the butternut squash if you cut it into really small chunks you should be able to juice it with the skin on.. much of the nutrition is near the skin too. However, if your juicer can’t handle it then peeling and deseeding is the way to go! Thanks for stopping by Helen!
