What do you do when you’ve got a huge box of oranges and grapefruit that you’re sick of eating? You make this delicious juice. All you need is a juicer and 5 minutes and you’re done!
I used grapefruits, oranges, lemons, limes, and clementines, but you can really use whatever citrus fruit you have on hand.
Our family found the juice to be a little much on it’s own, so you can add as much water as you like. We found a 1:1 ration of juice to water worked best for our tastebuds. We kept the sugar content minimal, only adding in 2 Tbsp of sugar. It was just enough to take the edge off the lemon. You may need more depending on how sweet your particular batch of citrus is. Our box of grapefruit was the sweetest I’ve ever had in 10 years. (The school I teach at has a citrus fundraiser.)
