Notes

  • You can also add kakadu plum powder or camu powder to this juice for extra vitamin C.
  • If you don't have grapefruit, swap in extra lemon or lime.
  • If you have a juicer, you can also make this as a traditional juice, without the fibre. But I like this blended version - it's quicker, easier, and isn't super fibrous so still feels like a pourable juice.
