- 1 pink grapefruit, peeled and broken into sections
- ¼ – ½ C water
- 1/4 tsp vanilla
- 5 drops vanilla crème stevia or 1 packet stevia powder
- pinch Stacey Hawkins Sinful Cinnamon Seasoning or Stacey Hawkins Awesome Autumn Spice
- Take ½ of your grapefruit segments and reserve for another use. Of the segments remaining, place 1/2 of them in the freezer. Here’s a hint- this recipe is so good, freeze the other half of the grapefruit because you’ll want to make it again! Place the other segments in the fridge to keep chilled until you’re ready to use them.
Smoothie directions: Place 1/4 of the frozen grapefruit and ¼ of the fresh grapefruit in the blender with the vanilla powder and stevia. Pour ¼ c of the water into the blender, put the lid on and pulse. If you need it thinner, add a little more water until desired consistency is met. Scrape the sides of the blender during processing. Serve chilled with a sprig of fresh mint if you have it! Y-U-M!! Sorbet directions: Place 1/4 of the frozen grapefruit and ¼ of the fresh grapefruit in the blender with the vanilla powder and stevia. Pour ¼ c of the water into the blender, put the lid on and pulse, scraping the sides as you go. Hint: because this makes such a small amount, sometimes it all gets stuck in the bottom of the blender because you’re using such a little bit of water to get the right consistency. If you make a double batch and freeze ½, it can make your job a little easier. These make GREAT popsicles!!!
STEP 2 IDEA: Use almond milk instead of water. STEP 4 IDEA: You can also use some unsweetened Greek yogurt in addition to the milk or water to make them nice and creamy.
