Sunshine in a Cup

Grapefruit Smoothie

I know I know everyone and their moms are talking about how gorgeous it is outside, so I won’t talk about that. Instead, I will share with you a life changing discover Chris and I had a couple weeks ago.

Disclaimer: we may not be that smart, and maybe people have been doing this for ages and questioning why we haven’t, BUT either way it’s amazing.

So what is it?

Long story short:  a couple weeks ago, we had just done Insanity and really wanted a smoothie, but PROBLEM  we realized we didn’t have any milk or juice (ok, we never have juice).  Anyway, we don’t  have any liquid to  make our smoothie go round. So we were crushed, and started making eggs (because of course eggs are still awesome), UNTIL we discovered we had a few lingering grapefruits in the drawer of the fridge, that were a bit past their prime. So, naturally, we sniffed them (they passed the test) and then proceeded to squeeze them into the blender with frozen fruit and yogurt.

The Result: perfection.

Grapefruit Smoothie

And fast forward to the present day, where the obsession is still strong.

It is soo refreshing, using all frozen fruits makes into a semi fro yo type indulgence. And the grapefruit juice just adds a certain pop of citrus to the sweetness of the berries! This is a great spring/summer treat.

Question of the Day: What’s your favorite smoothie addition or should I say addiction? Mine is definitely frozen banana, it just adds the right amount of sweetness to any smoothie.
