Start your day with cut grapefruit

  • Wedges – the simplest way is to use a grapefruit knife to cut wedges loose for easy spooning


  • Mixed with ricotta and honey – Once you have the wedges, toss with a mixture of ricotta and honey.
  • In your water – Add wedges to your water bottle. For a pitcher of water, just slice the grapefruit skin and all!
