Healthy Homemade Grapefruit Juice Recipe

The best grapefruit juice is homemade grapefruit juice.  Store-bought grapefruit juice with sugar and added preservatives are not healthy. Also, it has usually been brought to a high temperature to preserve it, which reduces its nutritional value.

The best way to have a healthy glass of grapefruit juice full of health benefits is to make it yourself. You do not need a juicer. In fact, using a blender is better because a juicer removes the pulp, which is full of nutrients.  Some people add sugar to reduce the sourness of grapefruit but there are healthy alternatives to white sugar.

Grapefruit is a healthy superfood good which helps with weight loss! It does more than help you lose weight, grapefruit is full of many health benefits too. Remember when a person gorged on grapefruit in the 1980’s and seriously lost lots of weight? It was highly restrictive but it turns out all those restrictions were not necessary.
