Green Grapefruit Juice

Hot days often mean I don’t feel hungry, but I know that I need nutrition and hydration. I make this healthy juice and sip it during the afternoon. Substituting blood orange for grapefruit makes a sweeter version.

Ingredients:

1 grapefruit (sweeter alternate: 1 blood orange)
2 cucumbers
3 carrots
4 leafs of kale

Directions:

Process all ingredients into juicer and serve immediately or refrigerate. Keeps for 24 hours.
