Equipment

Ingredients

  • 1 grapefruit, peeled and chopped (remove white pith)
  • 1 large orange, peeled and chopped (remove white pith)
  • ½ seedless English cucumber, peeled and chopped
  • 1 inch piece of ginger, peeled
  • ½ cup water
  • ice, for serving (optional)

Instructions

  • In an upright blender, combine the grapefruit, orange, cucumber, ginger, and water. Bring the speed up to high and blend until completely smooth and liquified. Strain the juice through either a fine mesh strainer positioned over a bowl or through a nut milk bag. Serve the juice over ice if you like. Winter sparkle juice will keep in a sealed bottle in your fridge for up to 5 days.

Notes

  • I make this in a blender and then fine strain the result to make the juice. If you have a juicer, feel free to use that instead!
  • I used a Cara Cara orange because I had it on hand and the rosy hue was hard to resist. A regular old navel orange is fine though!
  • Both my grapefruit and orange were super sweet. If you’re finding the juice a bit on the bitter side, stir in a bit of agave nectar or other sweetener you like.
