  • 2 naval oranges rinds cut off
  • 1 lemon rind cut off
  • 1 lime rind cut off
  • 1/2 grapefruit rind cut off
  • 1 inch piece fresh ginger root
  • 1/16 tsp Ground Cayenne Pepper
  • 1 cup filtered water
  • 3 tbsp maple syrup optional


  1. Cut off the fruit rinds/peels. Cut the fruits into quarters and place in a high powered blender (I recommend Vitamix) along with the remaining ingredients. Blend on high for 20-30 seconds until smooth. Serve and enjoy!

Recipe Notes

you can adjust the amount of maple syrup in the recipe if you find the heat too much. Be cautious using cayenne pepper- it is hot and if you happen to get any on your hands/skin, be sure to wash the area thoroughly and avoid touching your eyes to prevent irritation.
