Refreshing & Rehydrating Grapefruit Mint Juice

During the summer, I love having something fruity and refreshing to sip on hot days!  This grapefruit mint juice perfectly fits the bill.  Using fresh organic mint grown in my very own backyard garden, I whipped this up in a matter of minutes!FullSizeRender (56) copy

What you’ll need…

  • 1 grapefruit, juiced
  • 12 mint leaves, broken apart
  • 1/2 to 1 teaspoon organic agave nectar (or sweetener of choice–maple syrup or honey would probably also work)
  • water and ice

Combine 1 part water, 1 part juice, and 1 part ice in a pitcher until you’ve used all the grapefruit juice.  Add in the broken mint leaves and sweetener.  You may need more or less sweetener than how much I added depending on how bitter or sweet your grapefruit is. Mine was pretty bitter, so it needed a little bit more. (about 1 teaspoon agave).  You can also try mixing in raspberries or any other fruit you think would make a nice addition to this drink.  Let the pitcher sit in the fridge until the drink is cold.

Pour in glasses, add cute straws, and enjoy with your friends and family!

Fun Foodie Fact:  Grapefruit is one of the best fruits for rehydrating because it is composed of 91% water and full of electrolytes!
