Juice Recipe #1: Grapefruit and Apple Juice

This is a juice I really enjoy and can’t seem to get enough of. It’s one grapefruit and one apple. I actually grew up not being particularly fond of grapefruits as I found them to be too tart, but when juiced with an apple, the apple adds a sweetness that makes it an absolutely divine juice. I made the juice pictured with one red grapefruit bought at a local farmers market and an Organic Fuji apple. If possible I always try to purchase local and organic fruits and vegetables. Organic Fuji apples are my favorite and taste far and above waaaaay better than any conventionally grown one. Once I went Organic Fuji…I never went back. Thoroughly wash both fruits and quarter and peel the grapefruit. Don’t peel the apple, that’s where a lot of the nutrients are!

Both grapefruit and apple are loaded with Vitamin C and lots of other nutrients such as B vitamins, potassium and calcium. Grapefruit juice should not be used to take prescription drugs as the juice inhibits their metabolism and absorption.

~Happy Juicing!~
