Honey Roasted Grapefruit


Im pretty much a grapefruit hater. I have had it a few times and the bitter taste just isn’t for me. And the gobs of sugar I would put on it to make it edible made this once healthy fruit …not.

So why did I make a recipe with grapefruit being the star? Because I found a way to make it so I will eat it and like it!

I honestly don’t know when my hatred of grapefruit began. I think I had it when I was younger and it was SUPER bitter to the point it made me gag. And after that experience I didn’t see the point of the suffering to eat this fruit.

But it IS good for you…and I am all about feeding my body with all the nutrients it needs…so begrudgingly I went back to the drawing board with grapefruit.

I even made a pro/con list of why I should eat more grapefruit:


It tastes bitter


It is high in enzymes that causes your body to burn fat…big plus

It is high in fiber ( pectin) which improves digestion

It contains salicylic acid which works as a powerful antiseptic…so if I don’t want to eat it I can add some grapefruit juice to water and make a wonderfully smelling antiseptic spray!

And because it is a fat burner, it keeps you full longer!

You could say I was losing in this list…


This time I roasted them, drizzled them with honey and topped it with some coconut cream to balance it out….the results? Phenomenal.

And yes. I roasted these citrus bad boys because I can and you should try it too!

And as far as being a grapefruit hater? I am not one any more. I am a grapefruit liker….it’s still not quite love but it’s close!
