Grapefruit Limeade

Do you have a favorite summer drink? I personally love grapefruit flavored beverages! I can be bad at drinking the recommended amount of water each day, so having fun drinks around the house really helps. 

Grapefruit is good for your blood pressure and over all heart health. They’re packed with nutrients including lycopene and positively influence lipid levels. I’ve also read a study that found that men who regularly ate grapefruit have an above 50% less chance of prostate cancer! Go grapefruit! 

This limeade is the perfect mixture of sweet and tart and it’s looks pretty in your glass! Perfect for a summer barbecue or just when lounging around the house! 

Ingredients 

  • 2 Grapefruits 
  • 3 limes 
  • 6 cups of water
