Warm Broiled grapefruit with cinnamon brown sugar and just a touch of cayenne makes a spicy sweet treat bursting with vitamin C & goodness! One of my friends gave me a box of pink grapefruit and I have been trying to get creative and have been preparing grapefruit different ways. One of my favorite ways to eat it is warm. Broiled grapefruit makes a sweet N spicy treat, especially with a touch of brown sugar, cinnamon and cayenne. Brush a little coconut oil on it and it becomes a decadent treat! Perfect for that cold evening when you’re craving something warm and sweet and healthy! If you don’t like raw grapefruit, you may like the broiled version. Broiling fruit intensifies the flavor and brown sugar sweetens it. You can skip the cayenne if you just want the sweet taste. I like the cayenne touch because it adds a spicy kick to it and I love spicy :)!! This recipe is so simple I don’t even need to put out a recipe card, but I did anyway. If you’re not a grapefruit lover, try this broiled version and see if you don’t love it!! To turn broiled grape fruit into real dessert, scoop it out and serve with a dollop of Greek yogurt or coconut cream!
Pink grapefruit is bursting with vitamin C! Pink grapefruit have even more health attributes than white grapefruit. It contains lycopene, a powerful carotenoid that improves heart health and is also protective against skin cancer. It is also an “excellent” source of vitamin A and a “good” source of fiber, potassium, and vitamin B5. Cinnamon is a powerful antioxidant that helps to keep blood sugar steady.
Note: Do not eat grapefruit if you’re on cholesterol lowering drugs like Statins and Lipitor because of the drug nutrient interactions. If doubtful about whether you medications may interact with grapefruit, check with your physician.
