I have decided this pineapple and grapefruit smoothie is my welcome to spring signature smoothie. Seriously, I just spent an hour sitting under the nectarine tree in the yard, sipping on a grapefruit smoothie while the kids played (QUIETLY!), and I am so so ready for spring (not that we have had much of a winter).
I was in the very lucky position of being gifted a massive bag of grapefruits from our lovely next door neighbours. It was a very Home Improvement-esque moment (that TV show from years ago with Tim Allen – loved it 🙂 ), where I was in the yard playing/weeding with the kids, and a little neighbourly head popped over the fence offering gifts of fruit.
I massively craved grapefruit during both pregnancies, but I have never really done anything with them, other than eating them straight, so I figured I would have a bit of a play and come up with something a bit more exciting to be enjoyed in the beautiful 76F degree day we were having.
This grapefruit smoothie was absolute perfection. You still get that tartness I love from the fruit, but the pineapple cuts right through it and gives it a sweeter edge, while the pomegranate adds some extra health benefits, and makes everything a pretty pink colour.
I hope you love this grapefruit smoothie as much as we did! For more drink recipes, check these out:

- Pop everything into a blender and blend until smooth (see notes)
