Ginger Grapefruit Juice


For most people in the world, winter is encompassed by darkness and cool colors of white, blue and grey. Hurried bodies rise before the sun and return home as the warmth of our world hides its face. Although I do LOVE winter, there are moments when I long for the days of driving home at 7 PM with sunlight blazing through the windshield & evenings spent with friends in the warm air under twinkling lights.

A few years ago I watched the documentary Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead and after buying a Breville on Black Friday sale, caught the juicing bug. It marked the beginning of a long juice binge, but when I moved to Denver, my Breville began to sit and collect dust. I think winter has much to do with my renewed desire to juice. In contrast to the starkness of winter juicing contributes splashes of warm, nutritious color.


Ginger Grapefruit Juice

This recipe serves two and is quite tart. If you aren’t used to grapefruit, I would recommend sweeting or you may be a bit too puckered. 



4 oranges
thumb sized portion of ginger
1.5 grapefruit
2 carrots
1/4 lemon


Peel and quarter the fruit & peel the ginger.
Run all items through a juicer. Add sweetener as needed.
