Serves: 10

Preparation Time: 5 min

2 cups light orange juice, chilled
2 cups light grapefruit juice, chilled
1/2 cup lime juice, freshly squeezed, chilled
2 12-ounce cans diet ginger ale

  3. Serve over ice cubes in tall glasses.


Lemonade and Tea


  • To extract more juice, poke the skin of the lemon with a fork (without going through the skin). Heat a medium lemon for 20 to 30 seconds.
  • Roll lemons on the counter before juicing.
  • When make your own iced tea, use a variety of tea bags for maximum flavor.
  • Make ice from the drinks they will go into (lemonade, tea, coffee). Then, when you are chilling your beverage, melting ice won't dillute your drink.

Shakes and Smoothies


  • When blending smoothie, add more liquid (milk, water) to thin out the smoothy and to mix ingredients. To make thicker smoothies, add a handful of ice cubes, frozen fruit or frozen yogurt.
  • To make low calorie smoothies, use low fat/fat free diary products or soy milk.
  • Vanilla or strawberry protein powder can easily be added for additional protein content.
  • Freeze extra smoothie and blend it again later on when you want to eat it.
  • If a smoothie is too sweet, substitute frozen cranberries for any fruit in the ingredients.

Alcoholic Drinks


  • In alcoholic drinks, use absinthe instead of other hard alcohol for a gluten and dairy free drink.
  • Don't drink everyday. Drink reasonably and sensibly to avoid consuming excessive calories and carbs.
  • Take a multivitamin with folic acid, a synthetic form of a necessary B Vitamin that is moderately depleted from alochol consumption. This helps reduce the risk of heart disease and some types of cancer.
