I’m always on the lookout for a low-sugar snack or dessert to curb my sweet to. Boy do I have a serious sweet tooth. When I was at the grocery store the other day in the produce section the grapefruit caught my eye. I haven’t had a grapefruit in a really long time. I figured I’d pick one up and give it a whirl. Somehow I remembered seeing somewhere a broiled grapefruit. So I gave it a try. Loved it! It’s just a touch better than a raw grapefruit because the sugar is melted over the juicy flesh of the fruit. YUM!
I know many can enjoy this fruit without any sugar. I can’t dig that. It’s way too tart for me. But add a little sprinkle of sugar and I’m golden. As you will see in this recipe, it doesn’t even have to be much, but just a little bit to take the edge off the tart. The other great thing is that this is wonderful warm right out from under the broiler or even after it has been chilled. Both ways are equally delicious. I like to have half now and save the other half for later. What a great guilt free treat right?
