Let’s cheers to the weekend with a juice recipe that you can make in just a few minutes and doesn’t require a juicer! This juice is packed full of healthy ingredients to give you a natural boost of energy, clear up your skin, reduce inflammation in your body, and strengthen your immune system. Bonus: it doesn’t contain a ton of sugar!
What you need:
3 ripe grapefruits
Ground or fresh ginger
32 oz mason jar or container of choice
Tall drinking glass
Slice the grapefruits in half and then squeeze the juice into a glass. You can just use your hands or a hand-held citrus juicer.
Then place the strainer over your mason jar or hold it above the container you will use to house your juice.
Strain out any pulp or seeds.
Fill the rest of the jar up with fresh water. For extra benefits use an electrolyte water like Smart Water. This will also help with hydration, energy levels, and can calm headaches.
Add in 1 tbsp of turmeric
Add in 1 tbsp of ground ginger or finely grated fresh ginger.
Shake it up and place in the fridge.
Serve it cold in your favorite glass and share with a friend!
Vitamin C in the juice has a natural brightening and clearing effect on your skin so if your skin is acting unruly or just looks dull, you might consider adding more Vitamin C to your daily nutrition. Vitamin C is also essential for a strong immune system. Ginger is great for digestion and circulation which will help give you natural boost of energy and keep your stomach happy. Ginger is also said to reduce headaches and migraines because of how it improves circulation in your body. Turmeric is an amazing anti-inflammatory which helps reduce headaches, acne, swelling of the joints, and help your skin glow. The reason we add so much water is to cut down the sugar content and help provide additional hydration. Electrolyte water will provide a dose of magnesium and potassium that can reduce headaches and improve hydration as well.
I have not really tested this juice fully to measure its effectiveness on headaches so I’ll need to drink it on a daily basis and then let you know how I feel after a week or two.
I hope you enjoyed this post and let me know if you try this recipe at home! Have a great day and I’ll talk to you soon. <3
