When you’ve just decided to incorporate smoothies in your life and you’re looking for a sweet and easy recipe, this grapefruit smoothie is for you. If you are not a beginner and you can’t wait to sip on this super sweet grapefruit smoothie on a hot day, keep on reading as well.
The other day, I noticed I was using the juicer more often to juice my lemons in the morning. And since I’m a total grapefruit freak, I decided to also juice my grapefruit while I’m at it. Somehow I created a sweet grapefruit smoothie out of this. Delicious! I’m having this delicious grapefruit smoothie every morning now.
For the juice you will need:
- Two to three grapefruits
- One orange (optional)
In the blender you will need to add :
- Two ripe bananas
- A little handfull of coriander (more on herbal smoothies, here)
- Alternatively, you could add an avocado and a teaspoon of bee pollen.
Now, I added the avocado to make this smootie nutrition wise close to perfection. An avocado is also the best way to make a smoothie more creamy.
I start using bee pollen during spring time. It helped me get rid of my hay fever completely so I’d rather not test how it will go without my daily bee pollen if you mind.
Blend it up and add some ice cubes if you wish. I know for sure you will be back for more.
Did you know that…
Grapefruits are a delicious alternative if you find that oranges are a bit too sweet for you? They are as well loaded with vitamin C. The pink and red grapefruits also contain lycopene, which is known for its anti-cancer benefits. Grapefruit juice can also lower your cholesterol levels and can prevent kidney stones.
Please contact your doctor in case you are on medicine before drinking grapefruit juice.
