Pink Grapefruit- two ways.


Green juice anyone?














Here are a couple of refreshing pink grapefruit recipes for ya. One of them green.

Does it feel a little cold for “refreshing” drinks? I enjoyed them anyway.

These do taste of grapefruit, (though the first one is sweeter)so if you don’t like it, try this with oranges. For children- definitely with oranges.


Grapefruit berry slushie (FOR A BLENDER)

  • 1 pink grapefruit, chopped
  • 10 frozen-semi-thawed raspberries
  • 10 frozen-semi-thawed strawberries
  • 1 flavoursome clementine
  • a small bit of water to get your blender going
Blend until smooth. Schlurp!


Green Grapefruit Twister (FOR A JUICER)

From my “new” book, “Miracle Juices”.  I found it on the shelf, I was completely unaware I had it. Think it was a charity shop buy ages ago. I was drawn to this because it seemed such a weird combination. I know, I know……

Insert into juicer:

  • 1 grapefuit
  • 1 carrot
  • 1-2 large handfuls of spinach

This is very green but tastes of grapefruit. It’s quite a confusion. The carrot takes the edge off the grapefruit bitterness, though I could taste no carrot. Very nice though!

Note. Some conventional juicers cannot really get much out of leafy greens, mine cannot. In these cases you need to juice the fruits/vegetables and then blend in the leaves in the liquidiser. It seems like a bit of a faff, but it only adds about 3 minutes, and plenty of extra chlorophyll  🙂


I will be regaling you with future experiments from this book soon.

Meanwhile, for a sweeter, more conventional drink of phytochemicals, try a  Green smoothie  (no really, it IS conventional!) or some Heavenly Juice.

You’re welcome. Bottoms up!
