Rise n’ Shine Juice is a delicious citrus beverage flavored with red grapefruit, mandarins, oranges, lemons, apples, carrots, ginger, and a frozen banana!
The other day I wanted a healthy, filling, and BIG blended juice for my breakfast. I ended up juicing a ruby red grapefruit, mandarin oranges, valencia oranges, half a lemon, and then… if that wasn’t enough, I added apples, carrots, fresh ginger, half a frozen banana, and a handful of crushed ice into the mix. I called it “Rise n’ Shine Juice”! YUM!

Making Rise n’ Shine Juice In A Food Processor
After juicing the citrus fruits, I strained out the pulp, then added the juice, along with sliced raw carrots, a small knob of fresh ginger, 2 sliced apples, and half a frozen banana into my food processor. (FYI) * I have not made this juice using a blender, but if you want to try it, you will definitely need to grate the carrots and apples, not slice them, to give them a better chance of being fully blended*.
See all the pulp? That’s a lot of citrus pulp strained out of the juice… Now all that is left to do is “pulverize” all the ingredients into a thick, cold citrus juice drink!
Time For A Cold Citrus Juice!
I blended all the ingredients up in the food processor, then added a small handful of ice to get it really cold, and mixed that in, as well. The beauty of it is that it actually tasted good, after completely pulverizing it!
The result was a delicious, slightly thicker than normal juice (thanks to the apple and carrots). I liked it, certainly got my fruit requirement for the day in, it filled me up, and I froze the leftovers (recipe makes enough for 2!) for another day!
I really hope you enjoy this great tasting rise n’ shine juice! If you enjoy cold breakfast smoothies or juice drinks, you might also enjoy my recipes for Triple Berry Banana Smoothies, Strawberry Smoothies , or a copycat version of an Orange Julius.
