I am fortunate enough to have tried fresh, raw juices at some juice bars over the years... and when you have a good juice, it leaves you speechless. It's inconceivable that what you are sipping is nothing but pure fruits and veggies. How is it possible that a carrot or cucumber could be this sweet and I have never known? What a pity. So this past fall I decided to get my arse in gear and buy a juicer. I did a little research (scanned a couple thousand websites, read dozens of books, etc) and finally settled on a starter model that is easy to clean and use... my Breville Fountain Elite. The best part is that Bed, Bath, and Beyond carries them in store and I got to use a 20% off coupon. I know! So it's quite the bargain, and I won't buy anything unless it's a bargain. Owning a juicer has been life changing. To be able to get the nutrients of massive amounts of fruits and vegetables coursing through my veins in under 5 minutes, there are just no words. It's like the vegan holy grail sitting right there on my counter. This recipe is ah-mazing. The grapefruit is beautifully balanced with the other fruits and vegetables to provide a sweet, tart experience that gets the old taste buds grooving. The color is like a sunset on a tropical beach... or passion. I can't lie, this would be incredible with a splash of vodka or rum, but as I prefer to keep things healthier and not get boozy first thing in the morning, it's not included in the ingredient list 🙂

Directions:

Following your juicer's instructions, send all ingredients through your juicer, stir to combine. Serve in 1 large glass or 2 small martini glasses. Enjoy!
