1 Grapefruit Greens & Morning Blend-A

Grapefruit Greens
Tart and tangy, with an underlying sweetness, this citrusy green juice makes a terrific morning drink. Blending in matcha green tea powder gives this juice a terrific antioxidant boost and makes it a useful weight-loss drink, because green tea has been shown to stimulate the metabolism.

Ingredients:
½ romaine or cos lettuce
1 pink grapefruit, peeled
1 apple
¼ tsp matcha green tea powder

Method:

  • Put all the ingredients, except the matcha, through an electric juicer. Transfer to a blender or food processor and add the matcha, then blend until smooth. Serve the juice immediately.

Morning Blend
Shop-bought processed orange juice is a poor substitute for the real thing. Instead, make up this zingy anti-inflammatory mix. If you can get fresh turmeric root, add this to the juicer as well, but if not, you can blend in turmeric powder at the end. Camu camu powder is a good way to boost the vitamin C level, making it ideal for improving your immunity.

Ingredients:
2 apples
2 oranges, peeled
1cm/½in piece of root ginger, peeled
5mm/¼in piece of turmeric root or a large pinch of ground turmeric
¼ tsp camu camu powder, or baobab
powder or acai berry powder

Method:

  • Put the apples, oranges, ginger and turmeric root (but not the ground turmeric) through an electric juicer. Transfer to a blender or food processor and add the ground turmeric, if using, and the camu camu powder, then blend until smooth. Serve the juice immediately.
