This slushy recipe from my bestselling book Liver Rescue is a refreshing and delicious way to start your morning off right. Friends and family members alike will delight in it, too. Freeze some watermelon the night before so that you’re ready to go first thing, or cut some up and leave it in the freezer for at least 2 hours beforehand.
In Liver Rescue, I share how each of these ingredients can support you and your loved ones in healing. Let’s take a look…
Melons are a powerful liver cleansing food because of melon’s ability to hydrate blood all on its own and help alleviate your liver’s overburdened state. The combination of melon’s unique living water content with its nutrient content allows the heart to work less; melons thin out dirty, toxic, fat-filled blood, allowing the heart to not overwork itself in pumping blood. This reduces some of the liver’s responsibility to protect the heart, which frees up the liver to focus on other important chemical functions that are needed in the moment. Melons also provide the liver with hydration to hold on to for when you’re in a drought, living a lifestyle of chronic dehydration. They flush toxins out of the intestinal tract with ease and rebuild hydrochloric acid reserves in the stomach. And because bile is not needed to break down and digest melon, the liver can work on restoring its bile tank.
Diabetics are often told to stay away from melon when the reality is that all melons, including watermelons, make an incredible food for diabetics because they hold natural sodium combined with natural sugar. (Remember to eat melon on an empty stomach to avoid a stomachache from this predigested food getting held up in your gut by slower-digesting foods.)
Limes (and lemons) improve hydrochloric acid production as well as bile production and potency. They contain micro mineral salts that break down pathogens such as unproductive bacteria, mold, yeast, and fungus to help protect your liver’s immune system. The rich calcium levels in lemons and limes binds to the vitamin C within them, and both of these enter into the liver, where they waken a stagnant, sluggish, fatty liver, helping loosen and disperse fat cells. Lemons and limes clean up dirty blood syndrome, improve glucose absorption, and even protect the pancreas.
Blend the fresh and frozen watermelon together with the lime juice until smooth. Serve and enjoy!
Tip: Adjust the iciness of the slushy by substituting more fresh watermelon in place of frozen if you desire a less frosty beverage.
