Best Juicer Recipes EVER! ~ The Pink Lady with Pomegranate and Grapefruit




This is one of my favorite juicer recipes, not least because it's so pretty! But of course, if you add together three lovely pink things - pomegranate, grapefruit, and a pink lady apple - you're going to get something pretty! I'm sure this juice is great anytime, but I think it's especially nice in the winter when fresh produce is so sparse, and pomegranates and citrus are just coming into season. In the doldrums of yet MORE winter vegetables, this sparkly, tangy pink juice is a treat!


Best Juicer Recipes EVER! ~ The Pink Lady

I have heard that some people have trouble juicing fresh pomegranate arils (the seeds), and I think this is a juicer by juicer problem. I have a Jack LaLanne power juicer AND a Breville Juicer, and I have never had a problem with either. If anything, I feel like the arils sometimes go through the juicer too fast and don't get quite all the juice extracted, if you can call that a problem.

1 pomegranite, seeds removed and collected (about 1 cup)
1 large pink grapefruit, peeled with a kitchen knife
1 pink lady apple
optional: small sprig rosemary

Run the ingredients through your juicer according to your manufacturers directions, starting with the least juicy, and moving to the most juicy, to ensure any reside of the less juicy ingredients is washed into the cup by the more juicy ingredients: rosemary (if using) pomegranate, grapefruit, pink lady apple. Serve over ice, and garnish with fresh rosemary or a few extra pomegranate arils. Enjoy!

  1. Is it necessary to take the seeds out of the pomegranate first, or can a juicer handle it if you just cut the whole thing into pieces?

    1. I think it's necessary to get the tough outer peel off, but the membranes on the inside are fine!
