4 Amazingly Delicious Grapefruit Smoothie Recipes for the New Year
The first month of 2019 is quickly coming to an end, and with it, our motivation to stick with our New Year’s resolutions. Many of us made resolutions that consisted of “getting healthy” or some sort of variation on that. While the first couple of weeks probably went great, those mundane diets might have made you feel like throwing in the towel.
Luckily, no one ever said healthy has to mean boring.
The good folks here at Winter Sweetz want to show you how healthy can be fresh, fun, and delicious. Our Texas red grapefruits are the perfect low-fat fruit to help you get rid of bloating and boost your metabolism. Not only are grapefruits chock full of healthy vitamins and minerals like lycopene, vitamins A and C, as well as fiber, but they can also help to lower your cholesterol.
If you want some variety when it comes to eating grapefruit, check out the following scrumptious smoothie recipes to keep your morning meal or afternoon snack exciting.
