Do you have grapefruit in your fridge?

I'm loving this refreshing fruit, it can be enjoyed any time of day.
* It can be tossed in your green salad. (My favorite:))

* It can be juiced fresh(yummy for breakfast) Very helpful for weight loss!

* It can be layered with strawberry yogurt and granola.

* It can also be sautéed, made into marmalades or jellies..

You're still shaking your head and saying 'no way!'
OK...What about as smoothie?



*Honeyed Grapefruit Smoothie?

Blend grapefruit pieces with ice cold water until smooth. Add yogurt and honey and process until combined. Delicious!!

*You can also boil them with brown sugar. Place grapefruit helves in a baking dish. Mix brown sugar, cinnamon and melted butter and sprinkle this mixture on top of each grapefruit helves. Broil until sugar is bubbly. Garnish with mint and serve!


Oh, I almost forgot grapefruit-yogurt cake! Delicious! Hubby loves it! Yeah! He's on a cake diet:)

Seriously, I heard about a book written by Dean Kapsalakis. 'The cake Diet!"

Maybe I tell you guys about this book another time.


Do you have any other ideas? I'd love to try them!

  1. Sadly, I can no longer eat citrus fruit but I love, love, love grapefruits. I used to peel them like an orange and eat them like that--no extra sugar or anything.
