Whether you’ve just exercised, been working in the hot sun, or are simply thirsty, you need more electrolytes! These essential minerals are the key to achieving hydration. While plain water is good, you want to drink something like my best juice for electrolytes to bring in those important components. This recipe is as tasty as it is hydrating, so let’s give it a try!
The Juice: Honeydew Drop
Makes 48 fl oz
1 Honeydew Melon
1 Young Coconut (Water Only)
Peel the honeydew (optional), juicing the seeds.
Peel the lemon (optional).
Run the ingredients through your juicer and set aside.
Open the coconut and drain the water into a container.
Blend juice and coconut water together and enjoy!!!
Juicer Test Kitchen Insider Tip: Cracking coconuts can be challenging. I use this specialized tool to make the task safer and easier. Once you’ve drained the water, don’t forget to harvest the soft coconut meat inside! It’s tasty and nutritious. Just use a spoon to scrape it out and enjoy!
The Details: Electrolyte Yourself!
Having enough electrolytes in your system is key to the proper function of a myriad of processes from muscle contraction (hello heart) to blood clotting. Both honeydew melon and young coconut water are excellent sources of these key minerals.
Honeydew is rich in electrolytes like magnesium, calcium, potassium, and sodium. Bonus is that this melon and its seeds (juice those seeds!) have high concentrations of antioxidants like vitamins C and A.
Fresh coconut water from young coconuts also contains the electrolytes magnesium, potassium, and calcium. Studies suggest coconut water may be better at rehydrating the body than plain water. Coconut water may also lower cholesterol and blood pressure, as well as reduce the occurrence of kidney stones.
Lemon juice gets in the electrolyte game with sodium, potassium, calcium, and magnesium, so adding it to this already mineral-rich juice recipe makes it even better. Not to mention I love adding lemon or lime to most juices for an extra tasty zip!

The Juicer: Kuvings REVO830
I made the Honeydew Prop using the Kuvings REVO830 juicer. This machine makes great juice fast plus a whole lot more!
The Kuvings REVO830 is a cold press juicer that is also really fast, thanks to its dual-feed produce hopper. This feature significantly reduces prep time by eliminating the need to chop most ingredients. Long produce like cucumbers, carrots, greens, and celery go right into the vertical cut chute. Large items such as beets, oranges, lemons, and apples go in whole into the 3/5″ auto-cut hopper. If it fits, no need to chop!
The REVO830 not only makes great juice fast. It also does nut milk, sorbets, smoothies, and nice cream. It comes equipped with a powerful upgraded motor that is very quiet and lets you run non-stop for up to 45 minutes.
The entire machine is backed by a fantastic 15-year warranty. I absolutely recommend the Kuvings REVO830 for any home juicer. It’s one of my main juicers, and I love it!
