Grapefruit is loaded with juicy, delicious internal health and skin benefits! Grapefruit helps your body work efficiently so that it can flush out toxins and waste from all your cells, which will lead to better skin. It is high in enzymes that burns fat, helps to lower cholesterol, and has natural antibacterial and antiseptic properties. In fact, you can add grapefruit seed extract to water to make an antiseptic spray to treat topical infections. Who knew?!
So why not have a little fun with our friend the grapefruit! We love this recipe for Broiled Grapefruit because it offers a new way to serve a classic fruit! Use this recipe as an addition to your next brunch or even as a dessert at your next dinner party!
3 grapefruits (I used the sweet Texas Rio Star variety)
6 tablespoons raw sugar or brown sugar (you’ll need two tablespoons of sugar per grapefruit)
sprinkle ground ginger
sprinkle ground cinnamon
dash sea salt
Greek yogurt or thick goat’s yogurt
honey, for drizzling
granola (a few handfuls)
Preheat broiler. Make the bases of your grapefruit halves flat so they don’t wiggle around: slice off about 1/4-inch of the peel on the base end and the stem end of each grapefruit. Then slice each grapefruit in half, parallel to your initial cuts. Place the grapefruit halves face-down on paper towels for about five minutes to absorb excess moisture.
