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.
