Saying “so long” to sweet summer strawberry season can be saddening but as berries make their way out, sunny peak seasoned citrus can fill your fruit fancies. Maybe grapefruit, however, isn’t normally your top citrus treat. Grapefruit can bring memories of puckered lips from tart bits and swollen eyes from a stray juice stream. Well, honey, drop the sugar bowl and try Wonderful brand Sweet Scarletts – Pink Texas Grapefruits – to challenge your grapefruit gripes.
Sweet Scarletts are not only juicy and sweet but a half grapefruit has only 60 calories and 100% of that vitamin C you need to fend off winter colds. Grapefruit isn’t limited to your breakfast meal either. Actress, author, and host of The Real Girl’s Kitchen on Cooking Channel, Haylie Duff, partnered with Wonderful to create several Sweet Scarlett recipes to sweeten up your holiday.
Here is the Haylie Duff recipe we chose to make and gobble down!
