Grapefruit cucumber lime juice & farewell to an old friend

After nearly three years of making beautiful healthy concoctions together, my juicer bit the big one this morning.

Perhaps I used it too often and loved it a bit too much.

In any case, I was pretty disappointed when my juicer starting to smell like burning rubber before eventually shutting off for good, especially since I had planned to make my latest favorite combo- a twist on regular old grapefruit juice.


Grapefruit cucmber lime juice from The Grass Skirt blog #TheGrassSkirt #juicing


All you need to make the juice is:

1 large Ruby Red grapefruit

1/2 of one large cucumber

1 small lime


You can also add an apple or an orange, which I do (or did) occasionally.

This is really refreshing and would be the perfect combo for a hot summer day.  In fact, I just might have to replace my juicer before the warmer weather is here for good!


When was the last time one of your appliances went kaput?

Any juicer recommendations?  My broken one is the Jack LaLanne Power Juicer, so I probably wouldn’t get that one again.  Any new suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Have a wonderful day!






  1. That combination sounds amazing. I am thinking just sliced in cold water for a summer party? Pinning!

    I am pretty sure we have an appliance of some sort go kaput like once a week. Yesterday it was the sewer pump!

    • You are a GENIUS! I am going to put all of the ingredients in a water pitcher ASAP.

      I hope that your sewer pump situation is all fixed. :)

  2. The coffee maker is making the coffee taste like dirt in our house and have ordered a new one that should be arriving soon. I have blown up a $30 blender and an $80 blender and then decided to buy the cadillace of all blenders with an 8 year warranty – working really well for us. Good Luck finding a new juicer:)

  3. I would have to leave out the cucumber but other than that it sounds good. Sorry about your juicer. Have you check Etsy or Ebay for one? I am following from the bloglovinhop. Good luck if I see one I will let you know.

  4. This drink does sound refreshing. Is sugar allowed? :D

  5. My blender was the last thing that died…it was a blender passed down to me from Giselle Bundchen, to a writer, to me. I was so sad when that thing died.

  6. Aww RIP Juicer. The drink sounds lovely! I am actually in the market for a juicer (and blender) also so I can’t wait to see what you choose.

  7. This combination sounds so fresh and delicious! I don’t know why I hadn’t thought to want a juicer before, but now I’m planning to convince my man we need one this summer =)
