Smoothie of the Week: Pink Grapefruit

Is it Friday yet? Nope, not even close! Give yourself a mid-week wake up with this Pink Grapefruit breakfast smoothie.
This week's smoothie is a yummy blend of citrus and banana. The grapefruit adds a tart, sweet taste to a blend of strawberries and banana.
Ingredients:
Pink or Ruby Red grapefruit
1 banana
1 cup frozen strawberries
1/2 cup orange juice

You may find a whole grapefruit is too sour for your taste buds so add half first and do a taste test to see if it needs more. This smoothie tastes best cold so make sure the strawberries are frozen and the OJ is chilled.

  4. Absolutely delicious!! This might just be my new favorite smoothie recipe. I sectioned the grapefruit and removed all the white bits, did a whole banana, and a little less than a cup of frozen strawberries. Didn't have the OJ, but it was delicious without it. Thank's for sharing this recipe!

  7. Amazing smoothie. I am going to experiment with adding in some protein but don't want to mess with perfection too much. Thanks!

  9. Add a handful of spinach and you won't taste it, but you will get your greens right at the start of the day. I like the grapefruit idea, I haven't done that before. Great idea!
