Did you know that February is National Grapefruit Month? Nantucket Gate Blog is back this week to help you celebrate it with some delicious grapefruit-inspired recipes! Whether you test them out in your Tacoma, WA apartment sometime this month or you make them somewhere else, make sure to try a few of these recipes:

Coconut Ginger Broiled Grapefruit

If you haven’t yet experienced the delicacy that is broiled grapefruit, then you absolutely have to try out this recipe. The idea of warm grapefruit may sound weird, but we promise, it’s far better than you could imagine! This recipe spices it up a little bit by adding dried coconut, grated ginger, and coconut sugar to give your broiled grapefruit and crunch.

Pink Detox Salad

Are you looking for a healthy salad that you’ll actually love eating? This one will surely do the trick. Using baby kale and/or spinach as the base, add a plethora of pink and red fruits that are in season! Grapefruit is a perfect one to add this time of year, of course, but you can also add pomegranate, strawberries, watermelon, or whatever else you find at your local grocery store!

Grapefruit Sorbet

It may not be particularly warm outside yet, but we still think it’s a great time to make a batch of this smooth grapefruit sorbet. One of our favorite parts about this recipe is that there are only two ingredients: freshly squeezed grapefruit juice and sugar! This sorbet’s soft pink color is stunning, and in our opinion, it enhances the whole eating experience.

Grapefruit Bars

For a nice twist on your classic lemon bars, try out this grapefruit bar recipe! You can use the same bowl to make the buttery crust and the tangy filling, so you won’t have to worry about making a mess. To make these, you’ll need whole wheat flour, brown sugar, butter, eggs, grapefruit juice and zest, lemon juice, sugar, baking powder, and cornstarch. Enjoy this tangy new twist on a classic treat!

Make sure to treat yourself to something grapefruity this month, whether it’s one of these recipes or another favorite way of yours to eat grapefruit. Thanks for reading!
