In my experience there are two type of people in the world; those who like Grapefruit juice and those that don’t. If you are among those that don’t leave now. But, if you are among those that do, here is one of many good breakfast recipes that make great use of this tangy fruit.
Its also very easy to turn this tangy smoothie treat into a nutrition powerhouse just by adding a tablespoon of Chia seed. Chia is a natural seed that adds a large measure of nutrition including heart healthy, cholesterol fighting omega 3 fatty acids and antioxidants. Even better, unlike Flax, Chia doesn’t have a taste of its own so adding it here won’t change the delicious results.
Tomorrow morning, try this delicious grapefruit smoothie. that is filled with a wide variety of vitamins, potassium, magnesium, fiber and omega 3’s.
Tomorrow morning, fire up your trusty blender and mix:
½ cup of cold pink grapefruit juice
½ cup of fresh or frozen strawberries
1 cup of fresh or frozen peach slices
1 tbsp Chia seed
Put everything in at the same time and blend, adding a couple of ice cubes if you need to make it a thinner consistency. If you like, add a tablespoon of honey if you want to sweeten (or a pack of artificial sweetener).
