Broiled Grapefruit

DSC_4322.jpg Hello friends! My schedule/life has been so all over the place lately that I've unfortunately made myself the victim of some pretty terrible eating habits. That being said, I found this yummy citrus recipe over at Offbeat+Inspired and decided to give it a try...and you should too! Super simple, really delicious, and the best of all, health conscious! :)
DSC_4287.jpgDSC_4315.jpg Here's what you'll need:

-A grapefruit
-Plain or vanilla yogurt (The original calls for Greek yogurt, but I used vanilla Activia...yummmm)
-Sugar in the raw

1. ) Start off by setting your oven to the broiler setting. Slice your grapefruit in half, and then use a knife to slice between the peel and the fruit to make it easier to eat afterwards.

2.) Sprinkle each grapefruit half with Sugar in the Raw (it gives it a nice little crunch!).

3.) Put the grapefruit halves in the oven and allow them to broil anywhere from 5-10 minutes. Keep an eye on them to make sure the sugar doesn't burn; when the edges of the grapefruit starts to brown, they're ready.

4.) Spoon your yogurt on top of each grapefruit half, and then add cinnamon to taste.

5.) Eat, and repeat...with the second half of course!
There you have it! A quick and easy recipe that can get you a healthy sugar fix in a pinch. I know it seems like a bit of an unlikely combination, but it's actually a really nice balance of flavors. The creaminess of the yogurt is offset by the tart juice of the grapefruit, and the cinnamon & sugar add the perfect amount of sweetness! Perfect for breakfast, a quick snack, or even a healthy dessert for those who are trying to behave! ;)

Try it out for yourself and let me know what you think, or if you would make any changes to this recipe! Do you think it would be good with any other fruits? I'd love to hear!
