This is such a fun recipe to make and is beneficial for multiple reasons:
1. It's super easy to make.
2. It has HUGE amounts of Spinach, which is one of the
3. It is a great transition drink for those people who have trouble drinking those thick green smoothies.
4. Babies, kids and teenagers love this sweet and refreshing drink.
5. You will never waste any watermelon again...it is a great way to use any watermelon that might be too soft for some people's liking. And also a great way to use spinach that might be going bad soon.
BUT...if you choose to strain the pulp (you DEFINITELY DON'T HAVE TO), the amount of fiber is decreased. I still prepare this for my family when we are in the mood for a cool, refreshing drink (and I have a lot of watermelon).
**You can also substitute APPLES when watermelon is not in season.

Watermelon GREEN Juice
2 cups watermelon
1 slice lime or lemon, 1/4 of an inch thick
2 large handfuls of spinach
Fill your blender with your watermelon and slice of lime. Pulse until smooth. Begin adding your spinach and blend until smooth. I have added up to a pound of spinach to really make this a power GREEN DRINK.
If you want to STRAIN some of the pulp:
Using a food grade CHEESE CLOTH, pour your drink into the cloth and strain the juice into a bowl. You can strain as much as you want with as little or as much pulp as you like.
