Bitter Melon Treat

Updated: Dec 22, 2019

Bitter Melon (Momordica charantia) is traditionally used as a medical food for stomach complaints, as a laxative, and to help balance blood sugars for diabetics.

Combining bitter melon with beets, which help the liver and gallbladder functions, is a great way to start the day.


  • bitter melon

  • beets

  • swiss chard

  • lime

  • SP Complete (optional)

  • ginger root

  • stevia (optional)

  • cucumber

The amounts will vary depending on which flavor you want to lead. It is important to experiment especially when using bitter tasting produce. Since the bitter foods contain more nutrients, stevia can also be used to offset the taste.
