Fresh Grapefruit + Mint Juice Print Recipe Print Recipe

 

I’d really like to send you all a bottle of this. Pretty sure I’d win you over with the whole juicing craze with this one.

The combination of the grapefruit with the fresh mint, it’s the perfect refreshment for a warm day.  Or any day, really.

Yeah, I’m still hoping that warm day is just around the corner.

ps. if you’re tired of all this juice, not to worry, I’m giving you all some chocolate next week.

 

 

Health Benefit of Grapefruit Juice:

  • Although grapefruits may taste acidic, they actually have an alkaline reaction in the digestive system.
  • Has a fat burning enzyme that helps to reduce the starch and sugar in the body.
  • Improves skin complexion.

 

Today’s 3 Tips on Juicing:

  • Citrus fruits, such as grapefruits and oranges should be peeled before juiced.
  • Keep grapefruits at room temperature before juicing to get the most out of it.
  • If the grapefruit juice is too bitter, add a little honey.


You can read more about the benefit of juicing and also the difference between juicing and blending, here. If you’re looking to purchase a juicer, here are my recommends.

ps. These are the jars I use!

Happy juicing!
