Enjoying National Grapefruit Month

February is National Grapefruit Month, and Edlandria Blog is back this week to help you celebrate it with delicious grapefruit-inspired recipes! Whether you test them out in your Alexandria, VA apartment sometime this month or you make them somewhere else, make sure to try a few of these recipes:

Grapefruit Bars

For a nice twist on your classic lemon bars, try out this grapefruit bar recipe! You can use the same bowl to make the buttery crust and the tangy filling, so you won’t have to worry about making a mess. You’ll need whole wheat flour, brown sugar, butter, eggs, grapefruit juice and zest, lemon juice, sugar, baking powder, and cornstarch to make these. Enjoy this tangy new twist on a classic treat!

Pink Detox Salad

Are you looking for a healthy salad that you’ll actually love eating? This one will surely do the trick. Using baby kale or spinach as the base (or a mix of both!), add a plethora of pink and red fruits that are in season! Grapefruit is a perfect one to add this time of year, of course, but you can also add pomegranate, strawberries, watermelon, or whatever else you find at your local grocery store!

Coconut Ginger Broiled Grapefruit

If you haven’t yet experienced the delicacy that is broiled grapefruit, then you absolutely have to try out this recipe. The idea of warm grapefruit may sound weird, but we promise, it’s far better than you could imagine! This recipe spices it up a little bit by adding dried coconut, grated ginger, and coconut sugar to give your broiled grapefruit a crunch.

Grapefruit Sorbet

It may not be particularly warm outside yet, but we still think it’s a great time to make a batch of this smooth grapefruit sorbet. One of our favorite things about this recipe is that it calls for only two ingredients: freshly squeezed grapefruit juice and sugar! This sorbet’s soft pink color is stunning, and in our opinion, it enhances the whole eating experience.


Make sure to treat yourself to something grapefruity this month, whether it’s one of these recipes or another favorite way of yours to eat grapefruit. Thanks for reading!
