Jayda Juice: A Recipe

Tuesday, July 21, 2015

Last fall, my friend Jayda took a trip to the maritimes and she came back raving about some juice that she had while she was away. I waited ever so patiently for watermelon to come into season so that I could taste the combination that she had described.

This juice is so refreshing! The best part about it is that making it is a BREEZE.

With all of the smoothie and juice crazes going around, I need to say that what goes into this juice is an amount of fruit that I would feel comfortable putting onto my plate. I cringe when I see people put a whole produce drawer into their blender and then proceed to drink it all. I'm no health official, but I just don't think that can be good for one person. All that to say, we're going to end up with a nice glass of juice!

I told you this was going to be easy...Gather up your ingredients. We've got fresh watermelon, some frozen blueberries, a lime, and ground ginger. I'm sure your blueberries and ginger can be fresh, but I went with what I had on hand!

Next up, we just put everything into the Vitamix. 

In goes the watermelon.

Then the blueberries.

A little bit of fresh lime juice comes next.

Last, but not least, a bit of that ginger goes in. Tthen we put the lid on and blend it up. I let mine run until it was VERY smooth. I didn't want any chunks or pulp.

Pour it into a glass, top it off with a lime wedge, and take it outside to enjoy it while you can!

No fuss. No mess. I even left the board game in the background because I thought it was the perfect picture of summer.

Jayda Juice
serves 1

1 cup watermelon cubes
1/4 cup frozen blueberries
1 tsp. fresh squeezed lime juice
scant 1/8 tsp. ground ginger

Put all ingredients into Vitamix. Blend for 30-40 seconds increasing speed gradually until you reach the highest speed (mine is 10). 

Pour (or strain) into a glass, top with a fresh lime wedge, and enjoy!!! 

Feel free to adjust the amounts of each ingredient to suit your tastes. 

Jayda, thanks for inspiring me to try to recreate this juice!!! I don't know how close I came to the ACTUAL juice you had on vacation, but I sure enjoyed it! 

Have you ever recreated a dish or drink that you were served?

*I mentioned Vitamix in this post because it's a product that I use in my own kitchen. They are not aware of this post and did not sponsor it in any way.


  1. Yum! This sounds really great and refreshing.

  2. This sounds so delicious!! Man, I need a Vitamix. :)

  3. Yum! I can even have this on THM. Thanks for sharing.

  4. I'll have to try this for sure!!

  5. Aww, I love Jayda! And I love that you were inspired by something you saw on her blog. I did that not long ago with her buttery pasta. Yum! This juice looks so light and refreshing for hot summer days! :)

  6. i have been ALL ABOUT the smoothies recently, and this sounds soooo good! it also sounds like a good way to dress up watermelon, which i usually find to be a huge letdown (compared to pineapples! and blueberrie! watermelon is boorangg). ;)


I love hearing from you! Please be sure to leave your e-mail so that I can reply. :)
