Broiled Grapefruit

Broiled grapefruit is a fun way to sweeten up your day with some fresh citrus and a Vitamin C boost. But the traditional preparation of broiling grapefruits uses butter and refined sugars. So I've cleaned it up a bit so you can enjoy a broiled grapefruit as a snack or in addition to your breakfast. Broiling this fruit takes out the bitterness and most of the sour flavor a grapefruit normally has, making it a sweet treat!

Did you know? Grapefruits are low in calories (a large one has around 42 calories) and is full or Vitamin A and antioxidants. They also contain a large amount of pectin, which is a dietary fiber that helps remove toxins from the colon.

Serving Size: 1

  • 1 Cup Grapefruit, cut in half
  • 1 Tablespoon Honey or Agave Nectar (or Stevia)
  1. Preheat your broiler to high.
  2. Place grapefruit halves on a baking sheet.
  3. Broil for 10-12 minutes or until charring begins.
  4. Let grapefruit cool for about 5 minutes or until it's cooled off enough to eat and top with sweetener of choice. Enjoy!
