I am loving this Vitamin C blast. It is tasty, refreshing and so simple to make. This fresh juice is great after a workout or if are feeling dehydrated, run down, or just need a lift. No need to plug in a fancy juicer either. Just cut and squeeze fresh fruit with a manual juicer. The combination of grapefruit, oranges, and lemons gives the juice a complexity that none of these fruits have when pressed on their own. The heat of Cayenne is a warming spice that is said to support cardiovascular health, suppress appetite, and relieve congestion.
Grapefruits pack a punch of Vitamin C (64%) and Vitamin A (28%). Oranges have more Vitamin C (85%) but also more sugar. Lemons have 51% Vitamin C and are great for cleaning and cleansing. The trio or citrus along with a dash of Cayenne pepper is refreshing and bursting with vitality. I love how quickly I can make this too – no fuss. Enjoy this full strength or omit the Cayenne and dilute it with water in your favorite water bottle.
