The endless winter we’re having here in Indiana has me longing for warmer weather. To satisfy my craving, I’ve been eating lots of citrus fruit. My favorite citrus fruit is the delicious but (in my opinion) under-appreciated grapefruit. It’s usually thought of as that fruit you slice up and eat from breakfast, but there’s so much more you can do with grapefruit. Here are a few of my favorite ways to enjoy red grapefruit that may be different but are certainly delicious.

5 Great Ways to Use Grapefruit

 Five Great Ways to Use Grapefruit

The Traditional – Yes, it’s the most common way to eat grapefruit, but it’s one of my favorites. I have fond memories of my dad slicing up grapefruit for me and sprinkling sugar on top. Still one of the best ways to start the day.

Grapefruit-Infused Water – One of the best gifts I’ve ever received has been my Define Bottle (thanks Jackie!). It allows me to make all kinds of delicious infused waters. For this blend, I used Wonderful Sweet Scarletts (yummy, full of vitamin C, and non-GMO certified) and a touch of honey. Chill for a couple hours, and then – OMG AMAZING. Seriously. Get yourself and Define Bottle and some grapefruit.

Caramelized Grapefruit – Say what? That was my first reaction to this recipe from my friend Sara. But slice open a Sweet Scarlett (now available in Indianapolis!), add a little Sugar in the Raw, bake, and wow…you will be blown away. Great for breakfast or a healthy dessert option.

Pink Grapefruit Guacamole – I love grapefruit. I love guacamole. I never would have thought to combine the two, but the results are delicious.

Honey Ginger Broiled Grapefruit – Check out this recipe. Don’t they look delicious? Perfect summertime snack. Or “I’m Pretending It’s Summertime” snack.
