Quick and Dirty Flu Fighter | Orange, Grapefruit, Lemon, Apple and Ginger Fruit Juice

It doesn’t have to be the flu season to enjoy the Quick and Dirty Flu Fighter fresh fruit juice. This recipe comes from one of my favorite juicing books, The Healthy Juicer’s Bible by Farnoosh Brock. This is an excellent book for both the beginner and experienced juicer.

This is a delicious morning fruit juice and as I made it, I just knew it would be a favorite of mine. I love oranges and grapefruit. I added a few ice cubes and sparkling water to mine. Try this recipe and let me know what you think.

Makes approximately 20 ounces

  • 2 small-medium oranges, peeled
  • 1 small grapefruit, peeled
  • 1/2 lemon (I peel mine)
  • 1 Yellow or Macintosh apple
  • a small piece of ginger ( I used a very small piece and the juice had just a hint of ginger, just the way I like it)

    Ginger had always been a great cure against cough, and the elderly used to boil ginger and let us drink it, eek! Thanks a lot for sharing this alternative! I think this is a better version since it also has oranges.

  8. Salma

    Wow, oranges are the best for health, thank you for posting about the health benefits.
    freshly squeezed is best.

    Love this recipe. I heard this week that eating Kiwi acts similar to coldeze. That may be a good addition to this recipe.

    Great recipe, Rich! I think I would like to add kiwi fruit for even more vitamin C. It should go well with this combo. My juicer is my best friend if a flu bug decides to visit.

    A yummy juice recipe. I’m also a big fan of orange and lemon when it comes to juicing. I will certainly add apple, grapefruit and maybe ginger in my juice. A great way to start my day. Thanks for this Rich.

    I am surprised that juicing isn’t more popular – just saying that because only one of my friends has a juicer.
    We have a recipe similar to yours above for winter, but without the apple and grapefruit. As a family we all love ginger. We also lace ours with cider vinegar (not too much)sometimes.
