You are what you eat, and consuming fresh, raw juices is one way to flood your body with nutrients and cure your ills. Plenish: Juices to Boost, Cleanse and Heal (Mitchell Beazley, 2015) by Karen M.L. Rosen is a collection of juice recipes and cleanse programs for detox, well-being and vitality. This recipe for Snake Charmer Juice comes from the chapter “Fruit Juices.”
Contributed by one of our experts, Romi Pulichino, this recipe has been specially devised to help lift a flagging libido, and with the mix of watermelon and pomegranate, you’ll find yourself transported in your mind to a terrace in Marrakesh. But be warned — even though it was created to, um, inspire your inner tiger, it’s also wildly delicious, so be careful who you make it for!
