Grapefruit Juice Mix

I’ve mentioned in another post that I’m recently into grapefruits which is why I’d like to share a juice combination with you that I just tried last week. I mean, I’m a pro grapefruit-devourer now, I enjoy every bitter-sour juicy piece of it. But especially for those of you who are not fond of sour citrus fruits, this is a really easy mixture that makes the first grapefruit experience more relishable:

1 grapefruit
1 orange
10 strawberries
a few ice cubes

Yeah, I know, very complicated. But just try it! If you are lucky enough to get some sweet strawberries during this season, you’ll definitely enjoy this.
It’s a perfect vitamin cocktail to start the day!

Smoothie Season

I’ve started to make some smoothies again, because it’s the season when fruits are getting cheaper, hallelujah!

And also it’s time to get rid of some Winterspeck. So here’s my first spring smoothie:

1 banana
2 oranges
strawberries
physalis

During this time of the year strawberries are usually not very sweet yet, so I just added a handful of them, plus a couple of physalis to get a nice scent for the smoothie.

I was in Barcelona (again) a couple of weeks ago, and if you have been there, you’ve definitely visited the Mercado de La Boqueria market (you should if you haven’t!):

They have amazing fruit stands there (try the papayas!) and as you can see, they also offer lots of fresh juice cocktails.

My advise, have lots of fruits and juices in mediterranean countries!

I’m going to upload some more pictures of my trip in another post sometime 🙂
