Detox Cred: Liquids in the morning are easier on your digestive system than solid foods. The carrots in this zesty tonic deliver a blast of immunity-boosting vitamin C and enough fiber to sustain you until your first snack.

    As a kid I didn't like grapefruit so since then I never had it anymore. However I really wanted to commit to this cleanse so I thought why not try it!
    While it still isn't my favourite fruit, I did like this juice. It has a little bit of the bitterness of the grapefruit that is sweetened by the carrot and complemented by the ginger.
    Not only does it taste good, it also FEELS good.

    One of the many recipes I will be making again!

    This was a LOT of juice if you have juicy grapefruit - it was my favorite of all the juices. We borrowed a juicer and I HIGHLY recommend folks beg borrow or steal one to see how great these juices are... and very filling for breakfast! Loved this juice

    Great drink! And if u don't like grapefruit, then you could always substitute... Use an orange, tangerine, lemon & lime, even an apple. I loathe celery, so I bought leeks instead. I think it's important to set yourself up for success, and use these recipes as a base, and go from there. Those of us who like grapefruit really seem to have enjoyed this... I know I did :) Best of luck to you all!

    Absolute favorite!

  • HisSonflower 5 Jan, 2012

    If you use three big carrots it's totally enough. With everything else this recipe yields three glasses or 24oz of juice which is great. You can feel satisfied when you finish drinking it.

  • kbouissey 5 Jan, 2012

    This is by far my favorite recipe. It's easy to make, tastes wonderfully fresh and even my 1 yr old son likes it! Makes my juicer a worthwhile purchase.

  • cindyswett 5 Jan, 2012

    This made a large serving but the grapefruit was a little sour for my taste. It was pretty good and filling.

  • bibliodiosa 4 Jan, 2012

    This was so wonderful and fresh, of course. As another reviewer said, you want the pith because it has the most nutritional value. Also, I don't need to chop anything for my juicer.

  • BarbSH 4 Jan, 2012

    Actually you should not remove the pith from the grapefruit.. The pith is an outstanding source of antioxidants. There is as much vitamin C in the pith as the pulp of the grapefruit. Bioflavonoids are powerful antioxidants that can help protect us from cancer, heart disease and other degenerative disorders.

    I don't like grapefruit at all, I could only choke down half of this one.

  • Pamela12 3 Jan, 2012
