Grapefruits have a very distinct taste which you either love or absolutely can’t stand to even drink. Personally I prefer a fresh squeezed grapefruit juice over an orange one. If you can get past the taste, which some people find too bitter, you’ll discover grapefruit is actually very healthy for you, and Â provides a great source of antioxidants.
Grapefruits are a great source of vitamin C, low in calories, and high in fiber. Antioxidants found in this fruit are a great source to boost your immune system. Grapefruits are acidic, which can cause heartburn in certain people. They can also cause side effects to occur when taking certain medications.
Below I share a cold and refreshing drink with the main ingredient being grapefruit! Hope you enjoy it and if you don’t, feel free to share your anti-grapefruit thoughts in the comments 🙂
You will need:
- 1-2 grapefruits
- 1/2 an orange
- 1 lime
- A blender andÂ juicer
Peel the grapefruit, orange and lime and chop into small pieces. Process the fruit chunks through the juicer. Fill a blender up to about half way to the 1 cup line and crush the ice. Add in the grapefruit, orange, and lime juice and Â blend well until you get a frothy drink. Pour in a cup and enjoy this refreshing and healthy summer drink!
