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.
