One of the ways I try improve my overall health is by making fresh juice most mornings and sometimes again later in the evenings for a refreshing drink. Right now (winter season), grapefruits and oranges are at their best so they are absolutely delicious and juicy.
My favorites are the ruby red grapefruits and blood oranges, which are almsot the same color as red grapefruits on the inside but taste relatively the same as other oranges. Don’t be turned off by the name…
This juice recipe is so simple even kids can make it, especially since all that’s really needed is a citrus press and a knife to cut the fruits, which you can do for the kids ahead of time. What a great way to get them to not only help out in the kitchen, but also to get excited about drinking real fruit juice and learning where it all really comes from.
