Grapefruit Smoothie Ingredients

  • grapefruit – is loaded with vitamin C and the antioxidant lycopene, which is shown to reduce inflammation and prevent cell damage. It’s also a great source of fiber and has a high water content (which helps with hydration and satiety). Added bonus, grapefruit helps the body use insulin efficiently, which keeps blood sugar under control and boosts calorie burn.
  • pineapple – is packed with nutrients and an important enzyme called bromelain, which metabolizes protein, eases inflammation and decreases bloating. <— Yes please!
  • Greek yogurt – is an excellent source of calcium, potassium, zinc and B vitamins. It also has protein (to help with satiety) and probiotic cultures for good gut health.
  • coconut oil – for the medium chain fatty acids, which are easily digested, burned for energy and promote blood sugar stabilization.
  • fresh ginger – is amazing for treating nausea and has awesome anti-inflammatory effects.

How to Serve

You can serve the smoothie straight up in a glass or make smoothie bowls. I made sure the smoothie had a thick texture that would work well for smoothie bowls! I topped my bowls with granola, grapefruit segments, fresh berries and little almond butter and it was sooo good!

Tips on Saving a Smoothie for Later

  • Store the smoothie in a glass container with an airtight lid (I use mason jars, but a thermos would probably work really well too). Seal the container and place in the fridge as soon as possible.
  • Try to fill the container to the top to avoid extra air which will cause the smoothie to oxidize.
  • Add a little lime or lemon juice to prevent oxidation.
  • Take the smoothie out of the fridge when you’re ready to drink it. Give it a good shake and enjoy.
  • Plan to drink the smoothie within 24 hours — it probably won’t keep much longer than that.

Notes on Grapefruit

For this recipe I used Winter Sweetz grapefruit. They’re grown in Texas and quite possibly the sweetest, juiciest grapefruit I’ve ever had. Now I see why February is National Grapefruit Month… grapefruit is at its peak right now.

  • Use grapefruit segments! Segmenting the grapefruit removes the bitter pith and makes for a sweet and juicy smoothie without any bitter aftertaste. Segment the grapefruit over a bowl so you can catch all the fresh juice and include it in the smoothie as well! I even squeezed all the rind pieces over the bowl to get every last bit of juice.

      Oh my goodness! This smoothie is amazing! I didn’t have Greek yogurt so I used 6 oz of regular vanilla yogurt. I also didn’t have any fresh ginger so I sprinkled a little ground ginger in before blending. I used 20 chunks of frozen pineapple. The best way to prepare the grapefruit is to cut off the ends and then cut off the rest of the peel with a knife. None of the white should be left. Then peel/cut each segment out of the membranes and remove any seeds. This will make it so you don’t have any bitter flavor. I am currently pregnant and, for the past several weeks, have been craving grapefruit like crazy! I was worried with the amount of pineapple that the grapefruit taste would be hidden. But that wasn’t the case. I could taste the grapefruit very well. So delicious!!
