Thanks, Kades. Approximately how many grapefruit to make 1 cup (I'm thinking 1.5 grapefruit based on the amount of juice I get for breakfast...put I use a crystal wine glass/water goblet and haven't measured how much it holds--better I don't know that for when I'm using it for wine!).

This sounds wonderful. Wondering if I could change the grapefruit juice to lemon and orange to approximate the taste. My medications can't have grapefruit.

Nice mix of flavours here ... ruby red grapefruits are very sweet and would provide a slight sweetness ... Can also work into a gazpacho with 100% hojiblanca olive oil. and a topping of pesto of onion, a touch of cilantro and serrano chili pepper, as it is mild however, flavourful ...

it depends on the grapefruit. I've used one and a half, two depends on the size and how easy it is to juice.

I have the same problem now. I've stopped the med for 2-3 days and downed the grapefruit when I get desperate but I don't see why OJ and a touch of lemon wouldn't work.
