the weekly juice

Strawberry season.....it's finally here!
We find ourselves each day with sticky sweet strawberry juice running down our arms and smeared across our cheeks. 
I threw some into our morning juice and WOW. 
A glass of early summer. 
bonus: lately I've been adding in some chia seeds to my glass
(see the benefits of chia HERE)
double bonus: you know I love beets.....this is really good with a big piece of beet thrown in.
  Morning Glory Juice
1 grapefruit, peeled
1/2 lemon, peeled
3 carrots
 1/2 " piece of ginger
6-10 strawberries (depending on how big they are....but really, the more the merrier)
optional: a spoonful of chia seeds

I'm so happy that more produce is coming into season--I can't wait to try out some new spring and summer juice combos. 
What are YOU juicing this week?

more juice!

Just made me this drink minus the lemon...I was all out. Plus, I added a little chunk of beet. It was delicious! I've been loving your juice recipes. Thanks for sharing! One question, do you find adding ginger adds a bit of bitterness? I can't decide if I like the ginger or not.

@paige holley:

The ginger never tastes bitter to me--it adds a bit of a "zing" and I've found if you add to much it will clear your sinuses out:) But ginger is something you really have to play around with the amount to see what tastes best for you.
