Rainn's Melon Cooler

I love juicing and my mother had some melon's laying around one day that needed to be used immediately, so we juiced them.

Now, neither of us liked the results, so we toyed around with it glass by glass until we discovered what it needed. Hope you enjoy.

** TIPS **

- When juicing, always juice the pulp 2x-3x for maximum juice extraction.

- Drier pulp can be easier used in other recipes such as quick breads (loaves, muffins, cookies, etc.

- Honey is a natural sweetener and can be used to sweeten juices, if you don't like honey try carrots.
