Juicing: Lady in yo face

 In lifestyle

Get a flavor bang for your buck.

On the recommendation of a friend (thanks Christina!), I tried the following concoction:

  • 2 carrots
  • 1 grapefruit (use rhubarb if in season)
  • ginger
  • makes about 6 oz.

She said this would wake me up as well as any coffee, so I gave it a whirl.

This juice makes a beautiful coral color because of the lack of greens (hence the “lady” title), but also has quite a kick because of the tartness of the grapefruit and the ginger.  I added waaaay too much ginger (so much that it was more like a ginger burn than a ginger zing), but nonetheless it was quite a flavorful waker upper (hence the “in yo face”). Next time I will add ginger judiciously.
