Eye Opener | Kale, Spinach, Carrot and Grapefruit

Yeeesss! I struck gold. The Eye Opener is the best kale and grapefruit recipe I’ve run across. The grapefruit makes a wonderful early morning green juice. It truly is an eye opener, but not too tangy.

I don’t know if it’s the kale that cuts the tangy flavor of the grapefruit or if it’s the grapefruit that smooths out the strong flavor of the kale, but whatever it is, it’s fantastic! Served best over ice.

Maybe it’s just the right combination and amount of ingredients that makes this juice so good.

It’s a simple recipe too. Just kale, spinach, carrot and a grapefruit. The grapefruit needs peeling, but that’s pretty easy. I’m used to peeling citrus fruit when juicing. Speaking of peelers, here’s a good one: OXO Good Grips Swivel Peeler.

This is a serious hit of carotene, essential for eye health and immunity.- The Big Book of Juices

    Love kale! But what’s the difference between “handful” and “large handful”?

      Hi Gina that’s a good question. I mean my hands may be larger than someone elses, so mine will turn out different. I guess what I’m saying (and the book) is use a little extra for a large handful. The more I do it the better I know how much I can tolerate of an ingredient. My juicing sense kicks in :-) Thanks for commenting, best wishes and happy juicing.

    Hi there! I know this is kind of off topic but I was wondering which blog platform are you using for this website? I’m getting tired of WordPress because I’ve had problems with hackers and I’m looking at options for another platform. I would be fantastic if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.
