Fresh citrus juice mixed with the heat of fresh ginger root and cayenne pepper. This recipe is quite hot taste-wise, but can also be sweetned to your liking.
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!
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.
