I would like to introduce you to my new snacking obsession. Texas Red Grapefruit from Sweet Scarletts is broiled to perfection with some coconut oil and spices that make this a perfect vegan, gluten-free, and no sugar added snack.
Just look at the GORGEOUS color of the grapefruit. Nature is so beautiful.
I didn’t realize I could love grapefruit without covering it with sugar. Surprise! I can. And you can, too. These Texas Reds are grown in Texas, where the hot, sunny days and cool nights make for sweet, delicious grapefruit.
This is the most rewarding recipe. So little effort is required, yet it yields such satisfying results. Whether you already love grapefruit or don’t think you do, you have got to try this recipe. All you have to do is melt a little coconut oil, mix it with cinnamon, dried ginger, and allspice, then drizzle it on the grapefruit before it is broiled for about 3 minutes. Then, top it with just a sprinkle of coarse salt. Trust me. Do it. This balances the flavors perfectly. You’ll be wondering why you ever added sugar to your grapefruit anyway. So not necessary.
This Spiced Broiled Grapefruit has become my snacking obsession because it tastes fabulous. But let’s not forget how nutritious this snack is. You’re getting over 100% of your daily need of vitamin C, not to mention some iron, calcium, vitamin A, and no added sugar. Cinnamon can help lower your fasting glucose level and coconut oil can help with weight loss. See? Snack perfection.
Do not wait. Get yourself some Texas Red Grapefruits from Sweet Scarletts and get broiling. You will be so happy you did.
