the yummiest juice

“a complete fast is a complete and literal denial of self. It is the truest prayer.” ~mahatma gandhi

in conclusion of my juice cleanse (i’m currently transitioning back to solids), i wanted to share my favorite juice of all that i discovered in the process; something i’ll probably drink whether in cleanse or regular day-to-day mode. it’s really simple as i try to keep most things simple with juicing and food prep. sometimes you can discover really fun and tasty combinations in the simplest things.

this pink delight is a combination of pink grapefruit and red pear in about a 60–40% ratio. the juice comes out a lovely coral pink color and the slightly sweeter pear juice complements the delightful bitter tinge on the grapefruit side of the picture. i enjoy pears and grapefruits are something i’ve always loved. from the yellow grapefruits in the tree in my grandma’s yard to the pink and red ones my mom would get me as a child, they are something i’ve always had a taste for as far back as i can remember.

[you might notice mason jars all over my fotos. i use these as glasses (ever since my drinking glasses all broke). they are sturdy and the wide mouth version makes a great glass drinking vessel. the foot of my juice presser is visible in one foto. having this as well as an electric juicer makes versatile juices like my pink grapefruit-red pear mixture a breeze and a pleasure (as well as an arm workout)]

  1. We seem to have similar palates – only recently I discovered what is (for now?) my favourite juice combo and it is almost the same as yours. Mine is bosc pear and lime. I will probably try your combo suggested here to compare soon (perfect timing too because I just ordered some grapefruit online). If you haven’t already, try mine and let me know what you think.

    • sounds delightful! do let me know how that combo turns out. i’ve always loved apple pear ginger lemon all together so i’m sure this one’s a go.
