Glow Juice

We are in the dog days of summer here in Colorado. The sun is strong and the air is hot.

We’ve been doing a lot of work outside with home improvement and gathering wood and it’s nice to sit down and enjoy a refreshing pick-me-up to get me through. Enter: Glow Juice.

This simple drink is the perfect way to get hydrated and glowing. Coconut water is extremely hydrating plus it contains the electrolytes potassium, magnesium, sodium, and calcium all while being lower in sugar than sports drinks (also no added sugars which is a big plus). Grapefruit is full of cancer fighting compounds as well as beautifying vitamins, minerals and antioxidants. It is also very hydrating and aids in metabolism function.

The beauty of these two ingredients is that they mix together so well. Sometimes, plain coconut water can taste a little like feet to me, but the grapefruit juice provides just enough sweetness to make this drink amazing.

Just mix the juice from 1/2 a grapefruit with 8-10 oz. coconut water (you could add juice from 1/2 lime for a little more flavor too). Shake and serve over ice. Very refreshing on a hot day. I can just feel my skin glowing after one of these babies.

I’m not pretending to invent the wheel over here….just a yummy combo that I think is worth sharing.  Have a great weekend!
