The most common way to eat grapefruit is to either smother it with sugar or to eat it from a can loaded with sugar syrup. Either ways, we try to mask out the natural bitter, tangy and acid flavors of the fruit under a mask of sweetness. So instead of consuming so much sugar, should we just give up on the fruit?

Well hold on, not so soon 😉 Grapefruit is a rich source of vitamin C and antioxidants. Research also shows that it is effective in lowering the cholesterol levels. So give this recipe a try and enjoy the health benefits of this delicious and healthy fruit! Broiling any fruit for few minutes caramelizes it, topping it with honey and a few slices of bananas increases the sweetness quotient. Afraid of eating grapefruits?! Not any more 🙂
