Grapefruit Ginger Shooters

IMG_0861.JPG

In a Nutribullet (is what I used) or blender, combine on high:

- 2 cups Organic 100% pure Grapefruit Juice with no added sugars
- 1/3 cup fresh organic Lemon juice
- 1/2 cup fresh Organic pineapple slices
- 1/4 cup fresh organic Ginger root, peeled of course
- 2 tbsp raw Honey
- a pinch of Cinnamon

I then strained the juice because of the ginger shreds or hairs or whatever, and then poured it into these little cute little tiny jars I found at Target on sale. 

This is a wake up call drink if I've ever had one! Feel free to play with the ingredients. Carrot would be a nice addition, or beet juice. The pineapple and honey sweeten it up a bit but I love Grapefruit and Ginger so I'm used to that healthy burn. I especially love this in the morning!

Note: You can obviously use a juicer too, but I like to blend up the actual ginger to get more of the natural fibers and nutritional components.

You can make this with any combination of ingredients, but the Woman Code's Menstrual Phase calls for Blackberries and Concord Grapes. Feel free to omit the sweetening elements if you'd like.

You can add ice cubes if you want, but I like mine room temperature, especially in the morning because it's easier to digest. I also add adaptogens, so if you use those powders, feel free to add some into your smoothie!
