Grapefruit, Orange, Banana + Ginger Juice

I have the tendency to become overly excited as soon as the temperature rises above 10°C and the sun comes through for more than a couple hours. I know it’s only the beginning of March but I already feel like spring. I want to get out my summer clothes and jump around in the springy, fresh air. I want to sit outside a café with a glass of chilled white wine, enjoying the warm sun. Unfortunately, there’s still a gap in temperature between my dreams and reality which I don’t want to accept (sometimes) and that’s exactly the problem! I’m prepared for the coldest winter and arctic temperatures, I never get a cold, but at this time of the year, a stone’s throw away from the end of the cold season, I tend to be too carefree and strain my immune system.

To avoid any deficit in vitamins, I start the week off with a powerful juice made of grapefruit, banana, blood orange and ginger. For two glasses of juice (400ml in all), I squeeze 1 pink grapefruit and 3 oranges. I add 1/8 teaspoon of grated ginger and half a banana, mashed smoothly with a fork. You can use a whole one but I didn’t want its taste and sweetness to be too overpowering.

It’s a true energy boost, like my January’s Turmeric and Ginger Blood Orange Juice!
