1. Blend everything together until smooth, along with crushed ice, in your blender, strain it if you desire to remove that extra bulk in your juice..garnish with finely chopped mint / cilantro and jalapeno..
Good Note: This juice is just fantastic , but if even that seems like too much effort on a hot summer day, do what I did for lunch this afternoon. Slice up some watermelon, squeeze a juicy lime over it, and sprinkle it with a mixture of spicy chili powder and kosher salt. My mouth is still happy.
