{recipe} Refreshing Orange-Grapefruit Juice

in Raw Food Recipe

This is actually my mom’s recipe; she’s been making it every day for weeks and says it just never gets old. We have some tips for you on this one on how to keep it extra fresh!

Refreshing Orange-Grapefruit JuiceMakes 16-20 ounces juice

4 oranges
1 grapefruit

Use a citrus juicer to get that juice going then – voila! – a wonderfully refreshing, cooling, alkalizing drink to start your day.

Isn’t it wonderful when something sooo good can be that easy?!

Now for some tips from both my mom and myself to keep this one as fresh and as lively as it ought to be!

  1. If you hate grapefruit, try changing it up with 1 or 2 limes to get that tart refreshment.
  2. If you want it to be extra cold and refreshing, add some ice and throw it in the blender. In that case, you could even add a touch of sweetener if you like (my preference is Coconut Secret’s raw coconut nectar… mmmm…).
  3. Keep at least a day’s worth of oranges and grapefruits in the fridge so this won’t come out warm (as it might if you were to leave your fruit on the counter).
  4. Give yourself a swish of water after you drink this. This is for the health of your teeth and is a good idea after ANY citrus drinks.

A special note: Thanks to Jessica Wyman of Rawesome Green Foods for supplying the lovely background for this drink. It was shot right by the ocean where she grows her wheatgrass for locals in the North Shore area of Boston, Massachusetts!
