Recipe: Grapefruit & watermelon sparkling juice

Combine fresh grapefruit and watermelon to create this refreshing juice.


Refreshingly juicy grapefruit contains pectin, a soluble fibre that helps lower cholesterol, making it an excellent choice for those managing their weight. One grapefruit also contains up to 70 milligrams of vitamin C; the pink and red varieties offer a substantial amount of vitamin A.
