Grapefruit mint juice without a juicer

grapefruit mint juiceI’m so happy right now because I’ve cheated my way to making a healthy, absolutely delicious and refreshing juice without a juicer! Do you have a juicer? Do you crave fresh, cold, homemade juices, especially when hot outside? Or inside your body? For me, the answers are no, I don’t have a juicer yet (sigh…sad face), but yes and yes, I DO crave juices on so many occasions! What I don’t crave are the sugars and preservatives that tend to come with store bough juices, that being the reason I never buy them. (applause moment?) If you’re in the same situation and have a blender, be happy and cheat away with me.

grapefruit mint juiceI owe this necessity driven invention to Summer, who did not respond to my kind request not to drop by before I get a juicer. She blatantly ignored me and arrived in Perth this week, hotter and more sizzling than I remember her. Well, now I have my guns so bring it on!

To know that this juice is not a juice, as in it doesn’t separate the juice of the fruit from the pulp. It’s a cheater’s juice, perfect if you’re after a fresh, home made, good for you concoction with a perky taste. All you need to do is blitz for few seconds, stick a straw in it (or not) and slurp.
