    I would love making this ‘Citrus smoothie. I would adapt it in this way. I would omit the grapefruit(I’m on statins.) and I would substitute greek yougart for apple juice. I think it would still be quite delicious and Healthy.

    This looks soo good I want to try it! I love making smoothies and sometimes make popsicles with the same recipe. At first I thought it would be carrot juice, my favorite, is fresh carrot juice, but hard to find in my area.

    I couldn’t make this smoothie as I am no longer allowed grapefruit due to my medication. Please be aware that this is the case with a lot of medications and a lot don’t notice this.

    Having reread this post I realise that I can’t have this smoothie since due to my medication I’m to avoid grapefruit. 🙁

    I am so disappointed that I can’t drink this – I’m not allowed grapefruit due to medication. 🙁 I never realised that that was sometimes an issue until my brother mentioned it, as it was a favourite drink of his before he had to take tablets.

    I do like the colour of this smoothie. Wonder if it’d still taste good without the grapefruit.
