Green Grapefruit Ginger Juice Recipe

This juice is simple, crisp, and refreshing. Though bright green and full of spinachy goodness, it tastes mostly like a lightly gingery grapefruit juice.

Notes: Juice the ingredients in the order listed to maximize yield. Finishing with a very juicy ingredient like grapefruit helps to flush more stubborn ingredients like ginger through the juicer.

When juicing greens such as the spinach in this recipe, you'll get a better yield if you tightly pack the greens (roll them up before adding to the feed tube of your juicer) and place them atop a harder ingredient (such as the ginger here). Nudge the greens through the juicer one small push at a time.

If your juicer has multiple speeds, use a slower speed for softer ingredients like the spinach and grapefruit.

Keep in mind that juicers vary a lot in terms of design and yield, so your mileage may vary.
