Pro Tips

  • Prefer a minty treat? Replace the lavendar sprigs with mint leaves!

  • Be sure to remove the seeds of the cantaloupe as the seeds have a slightly bitter flavor

  • If turmeric root is not available, you can substitute 1/8 – 1/4 teaspoon of ground turmeric powder and add directly to the juice

  • Be careful not to overload the press bag If making more than one serving – this recipe contains softer fruit which can lead to bag overflow when pressing

  • If you are not using a press to make your juice, peel the lemons and juice with the rest of the produce
