When I saw this recipe at Fitter than Choc, I knew I had to try it.  We all love grapefruit in my house and this is a tasty new way to enjoy it.  Try it for breakfast with some granola, for dessert with some good vanilla ice cream or a late night snack when you’re craving something sweet. 


  • 1 large grapefruit
  • 2 teaspoons brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon ground nutmeg


Pre-heat the broiler

  1. Cut the grapefruit around the edge, just inside the peel, then trace each individual membrane of the grapefruit into segments.
  2. Sprinkle 1 teaspoon of brown sugar on each half, then sprinkle ground cinnamon and nutmeg on each half.
  3. Broil the grapefruit, face up for 10-15 minutes, or until caramelized.

Yous looks wonderful! I'm glad you enjoyed it. Brown sugar is one of my favourites on grapefruits too.
