Healthy Caramelized Grapefruit Recipe
By Jennifer Garza, iSaveA2Z.com,
I just tried to broil a grapefruit and came up with a healthy caramelized grapefruit that was delicious! I’m not a big fan of grapefruit but I’m in the middle of a 30 day plank challenge and it is forcing me to make healthier choices. If you have yet to try a broil grapefruit, I highly encourage you try it. My husband really enjoyed it too! It comes out warm and gooey with a hint of sweetness! I actually wanted another one!
If you are looking for some other really good and healthy recipes I highly encourage you to check out our grilled peaches recipe and our oven roasted caramelized broccoli recipe. Both are pretty much the same concept and are absolutely delicious!

Yield: 1 Serving
Instructions for the Healthy Caramelized Grapefruit recipe:
Preheat the oven on a broil setting. Slice the grapefruit in half. Place the halves of grapefruit in a dish and sprinkle with sugar. Broil them for about 5 minutes. Serve warm. Voila! That’s it! Pretty simple and easy to do for breakfast. For those of us watching our sugar intake you can leave the sugar off. I tried this today. I ended up placing the grapefruit in the pan face down with no sugar and I was pleasantly surprised. Normally I would have at least sprinkled a bit of Splenda (low calorie sugar) on it but when I broiled it, it brought out the natural sugars and caramelized on it’s own. Now that’s what I call a very healthy breakfast that’s packed with flavor! Seriously, you’ve gotta try it!
