I am not a grapefruit kinda gal, never have been. Seeing as I’ve been finding them at the bottom of my CSA basket, I had to come up with a recipe to use them. Usually, when I receive a fruit or veggie I do not like, it goes right to the juicer. The grapefruit was no different, except I had to mask the strong grapefruit taste with something. I decided to choose ginger. That stuff can mask any taste!
I am pleasantly surprised and happy to announce that, on the first try, I made a yummy juice. I know, hard to believe, eh? I don’t know how I did it, but it worked.
Now, I know you are dying to know how I pulled it off. Because I am a such a nice person and want to pass on “how to mask grapefruit in a juice the right way” or at least my way, I guess I will let you in on it.
Drum roll, please.
Pamplemousee Ginger Juice
- 1 grapefruit
- 1 orange
- 1 apple
- 2 celery stalks
- 1 ginger nob or as much as you can take
Serving: Makes one pint
Juice it all in your juicer and enjoy all the goodness in a glass!
However, my juicer isn’t the top of the line, so I decided to juice the orange and grapefruit the old fashion way with my glass juicer. The celery, apple and ginger went through the electric juicer. I find I get more juice from the orange and now, the grapefruit this way.
If you do not have a juicer and want to try it anyways-no guarantees this will work though. Place the apple, celery, ginger and peeled orange and grapefruit in a blender or food processor. I would recommended dicing the fruits and veggies before putting them in. Blend it all.
If anyone attempts option 2- please let me know if A- it worked and if B- it tasted good.
I think I am going to go and sip my refreshing juice with my new bendy Glass Dharma straw. Nothing else quite says the perfect juice than a reusable glass straw!
