Ruby orange & pink grapefruit juice

Standard

They were giving them away in our staff canteen – freshly squeezed organic fruit juices and smoothies in a host of flavours. I managed to walk-away with three… Picked grapefruit for it’s mythical fat-busting abilities; blueberries for it’s anti-oxidant fame and mango, because I love the flavour.

Was in Mexico a week ago and was agog with the feast of fruit colour and the variety of tropical fruit. Plump, succulent mangoes, large blushing paw paws, giant pineapples straining at the seams, sweet finger bananas, prickly pears, thick cactus leaves, green coconuts, watermelon, oranges…

There is an abundance of oranges wherever you look – juice is often freshly squeezed in most restaurants and cafes, and limes, of course. There’s lime in almost everything. Lime flavoured peanuts (cacahuetes), lime-flavoured crips, lime tea, lime soup, key lime pie (however this is probably more Miami than Mexico)…
