A Super Smoothie

I am a huge fan of grapefruits. I haven’t always been this way. In fact it was only about a 1 1/2 years ago that I tried one again and loved it.

So I eat lots of grapefruits, especially when I’m not a school, and I have enough storage for them. They make a breakfast more complete and even work as a really good snack or ‘dessert’ after lunch or dinner.

Another thing I love but don’t have nearly enough of: Smoothies.

I can’t have a smoothie for a meal because it doesn’t fill me up enough but sometimes it’s too much of a snack or I forget about it.

But the other day I didn’t.

I mixed a honey Greek yogurt, flax, spinach, milk and half a grapefruit and its juice together into a delicious smoothie.

It was refreshing, light and tasty, and upped my mood tenfold. Who would have thought of grapefruit in a smoothie? It was worth the risk and absolutely amazing.

Honey Grapefruit Smoothie

1/2 half of a grapefruit (you could also peel it and have more of the pith so its more nutritious but I just spooned out the segments)

1 Greek yogurt ( I used honey but peach or another citrus flavor would also work)

A handful of spinach

1 T flax

Splash of milk

1 tsp of honey

Combine all ingredients and blend until desired consistency.

Enjoy!
