Fresh juice is a special treat for me as it’s seldom available. It helps me kickoff my morning aside for coffee. I am normally not a morning person but a cup of cold fresh juice is tends to brighten my mood just a tad. I wanted to spoil myself just a bit and make my own fresh citrus juice. Made of fresh red grapefruit, yellow grapefruit, and oranges, this citrus juice is bursting with Vitamin C and beta-carotene, as well as lycopene. Revered as fruits from paradise, citrus fruits are known for their unique health-promoting as well as disease-healing properties, especially among health-conscious, fitness freaks. This morning citrus juice is not only impact in flavor but it also delivers a heavy nutritional punch. This refreshing and bright drink with a bit of “zing” really grew on me. I felt too lazy to juice all these citrus fruit manually so I just removed the peels and skin and blended them. I left a bit of pulp in the juice but you can completely strain it if you choose to.
For this recipe, you will need:
- 2 large red grapefruit
- 3 large yellow grapefruit
- 4 large oranges
Peel and skin citrus fruit. Remove seeds. Place fruit in the blender and blend till smooth. Strain pulp using a sieve. Transfer juice to a pitcher and refrigerate. Serve chilled.
