Apple berry grapefruit juice
carrot, roughly chopped
fresh or frozen blueberries
crisp apple, peeled, cored and roughly chopped
grapefruit, peeled and seeded
honey or agave nectar (optional)
Step by step
Combine water, carrot, blueberries, apple, grapefruit, honey (if desired) and ice in blender jar of the KitchenAid ARTISAN Power Plus Blender. Secure lid and set blender to Juice setting. Blend until machine turns itself off.
Alternatively, combine ingredients in blender as directed, secure lid and turn dial to Speed 1. Slowly increase speed to high (Speed 10 or 11). Blend until completely smooth for about 1 minute. Turn dial to Speed 2 and blend for 10 seconds or so to reduce froth.
If juice is too thick, blend in an extra splash or two of water. Serve directly from blender, or line fine-mesh sieve with double layer of cheesecloth and strain juice into container, pressing against solids with rubber spatula to extract all juice. Juice is best if served right away.
For a sweeter drink, choose a red or pink grapefruit. If your fruits are still a bit tart, add the honey or agave nectar to taste.
