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.
