Awakening Green Juice

This juice is probably my favorite breakfast drink of the summer. Why? It’s so refreshing, perfect to wake yourself in the morning. It’s made from pure fruit and green vegetables! The reason it’s so awakening is because of its unique blend of ingredients: grapefruit, cucumber, and spinach. I also added some flax seeds for my daily omega-3 fatty acids and some ginger to get the morning zing. If you’re not a huge fan of ginger, just put less than what I recommended. I simply blended all of the ingredients in my BlendTec, but you can use a juice too! What I love about this recipe is that it’s full of vitamins and minerals that are great for the morning and it has 11g of fiber in just one serving so it’s the perfect juice to flush toxins out, especially if you feel sluggish or bloated. You don’t even taste the vegetables or the grapefruit, it’s actually more of a blend of just delicious ginger cucumber with a nice touch of grapefruit sweetness at the end. I love this juice recipe, and I hope you do too!
