The simple taste of pink grapefruit sprinkled with sugar is updated in this healthier twist. Simply replace the sugar with raw blue agave nectar (which is priced well at Trader Joe’s).

Before you go to bed, cut the next morning’s grapefruit in half and then make the incisions to separate the sections so it will be easy to eat.  Drizzle the agave nectar on the grapefruit and let in marinate in the fridge over night.  You will wake to a vitamin C and lycopene rich breakfast that is sweet, tart and refreshing.

Stock up on seasonal grapefruits…

Since pink grapefruits are priced so well and are such a healthy choice, stock up.  Here is another easy grapefruit recipe for an irresistible dessert.  The Grapefruit Slushy, a favorite around our house. Any bitter taste from the grapefruit is smoothed out by the crisp, sweet taste of fresh apple juice.  YUM!

    Hey Joy! Yum, Yum…I love grapefruit! I am addicted to fresh grapefruit celery juice right now…until the next yummy addiction comes along. Thanks for the book recommendation!

    Lee Anne, I will give the celery grapefruit a try in the morning. Sounds refreshing and I like that it’s not adding extra sweetness so you can really enjoy the tart, stimulating flavor of the grapefruit.
