Ruby Jewel

It's a great time for a recipe isn't it? And this one is not only delicious and beautiful, but it's seasonal!

This is so wonderful, tangy, sweet and refreshing - you are going to love it!

Ruby Jewel

2 Pomegranates, seeded

3-5 Ruby Red Grapefruits, peeled (depending on how much juice you want to make and the size of grapefruits - should yield about 2 or more cups of juice)

Put through a juicer and enjoy!

This is really a recipe for your juicer, but if you don't mind it on the pulpy side, you can certainly blend it up (and/or optionally strain it).

The important thing, though is you need to de-seed the pomegranates. You don't want any rind in there, as it will make the drink bitter. It seems more tedious than it actually is, but takes no more than a few minutes to do.

Check out this a sure-fire way to de-seed a pomegranate:

Here's another way which I haven't tried yet but looks even easier!

I tried your recipe -- modified. I forgot I had more than one grapefruit, so I used 2 poms and 1 grapefruit (I could have used two). It was delightful nonetheless. Thanks for the idea!

Glad you enjoyed the recipe rawbean! Sometimes I have more than one than the other and it always turns out great. The one time it was on the sour side was when I used red grapefruit, but not "Ruby" red grapefruit which must be sweeter, but like you I still enjoyed it.

rawvegan londoner and Dana thanks for stopping by. I will be sure to check out your blogs too!
