- 2 cups freshly squeezed orange juice or grapefruit juice
- 1.5 inch ginger root, peeled
- 1/2 tsp raw honey
- 1 juice of whole lemon
- cayenne pepper optional, for the adventurous
Process 1 cup of the orange of grapefruit juice and keep the ginger root in a blender until well combined
Keeping the blender running, drizzle the honey through the feeder, then pour in the rest of the orange or grapefruit juice, the lemon juice and the cayenne pepper, if using. Churn for 1 minute.
Transfer to 2 glasses and drink right away, before the spices and pulp settle.
I am not always in the mood for juicing, and then I peel the fruits, section them, pull out any seeds, and add all ingredients at once, blending to a smoothie consistency.
