GRAPEFRUIT GOODNESS

Red grapefruit, pineapple and coconut combine to make a delightfully refreshing sweet & tangy tropical treat!

Grapefruit is rich in minerals, fibre and vitamins including vitamin C.  The pink and red varieties get their lovely hue from lycopene, a carotenoid phytonutrient that has been found to have powerful anti-cancer effects.  Ruby reds are in peak season in the southern United States from November through until spring.

For 2 servings, blend until smooth:

  • 1 cup peeled and diced red grapefruit

  • 1 cup frozen pineapple chunks

  • 1/2 cup unsweetened coconut water plus 1/2 cup canned organic full-fat coconut milk (or use all coconut milk for a creamier smoothie)

  • 2 Tbsp white chia seeds

  • Lakanto monkfruit, raw honey (nonvegan), or pure stevia to sweeten as desired

If serving this smoothie as a meal or more substantial snack, add 2 Tbsp Nuzest Clean Lean natural vegan protein powder or 2 Tbsp Further Food collagen peptides (nonvegan), or 1/2 cup plain Greek yogurt.  Garnish with fresh mint and serve.
