Smoothie Sunday: Orange Grapefruit Smoothie

One of the best grapefruit I ever had was brought back from someone’s grandfather’s backyard in Florida, and it was amazing. It was so sweet I didn’t even need to add sugar. Unfortunately, most of the grapefruit you can buy in stores is not that sweet, and can be downright bitter. I still enjoy eating grapefruit from time to time, but having to load it down with sugar seems a bit counter-intuitive in terms of eating fruit for a healthy breakfast. But, I figured if I put it in a smoothie with other, sweeter things I could still get the grapefruit flavor without all the bitterness. And thus this smoothie was born.

What you'll need.

What you’ll need.

Orange Grapefruit Smoothie:

  • 1 grapefruit – rind, pith and seeds removed or about 1 cup packaged grapefruit chunks
  • ¾ cups orange juice
  • 1 5.3 oz container vanilla yogurt
  • 5-6 ice cubes
  • 1 tsp salt (or to taste)
  • 1 tbsp sugar (or to taste)

Add the first 4 ingredients into a blender and blend until smooth. Add the salt and sugar and pulse until well combined. Pour into a tall glass, drink, and enjoy!
