Grapefruit Yogurt Bowl Recipe

This could be a great idea for your breakfast and can be used for a healthier “dessert” that’ll trick your brain into thinking you’re satisfying your sugar craving when you’re really just packing in more healthy, good-for-you-food: yogurt, grapefruit, chia seeds, almonds, and naturally sweetened honey.

For just 100 calories, this broiled grapefruit makes an amazing healthy dessert! It packs in Vitamins A and C, and topping it with an optional dollop of greek yogurt helps add protein and calcium to the dish.

Ingredients:

For Broiled Grapefruit:

  • 2 grapefruits
  • 2 tbsp brown sugar
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
Optional for Topping:
  • 1 cup plain nonfat greek yogurt (can use coconut milk yogurt if vegan)

Instruction:

  • Slice grapefruit in half and place on a baking sheet, cut side up. If grapefruit halves do not sit flat, slice a little off the bottom so that it will.
  • Turn broiler to high.
  • In a small bowl, mix brown sugar and cinnamon. Spoon the mixture onto the grapefruit halves.
  • Place on a top rack in the oven so that it is relatively close (but not touching) the broiler flame/coils. Cook for about 5-7 minutes, until the sugars have just caramelized on top of each grapefruit.
  • Top each with plain greek yogurt (optional but I love the taste of it), grab a spoon, and dig in!
