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
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.
You’re welcome. Bottoms up!
