Pink Grapefruit Smoothie and Other Blushing Beauties



From the kitchen of One Perfect Bite...I've been saving recipes for Pink Saturday for several weeks now. I was, however, uncomfortable about sharing them until I had a recipe of my own to use as a lead-in for the post. I didn't want to republish something you had already seen, so things stalled for a while. Then I remembered this very simple smoothie. It is a perfect drink for spring and early summer and the tangy grapefruit sipper is a wonderful way to start the day. It has fabulous color, great taste and, with just three ingredients, is very easy to make. It you like a bit of tang to start your day, I think you'll love smoothie. Here's the recipe.

Happy Pink Saturday, dear Mary! This is not only a delicius post, but a pretty one, too. I adore pink. It just makes me feel good. What would make me feel better, though, is if I could reach through the screen and help myself to those goodies! ;-)

Happy Pink Saturday, Mary!

Raspberry rose souffle - how grand! Now back to the smoothie - do you know I have never used anything but berries in my smoothies. What a creature of habit I have become. The ruby grapefruit just adds a little zest to the palate. Grand idea.

Beautiful, Mary. And I love the idea of Pink Saturday! Grapefruit really is an under-appreciated ingredient, isn't it? (It makes a very interesting swap for lemon in a lot of recipes.)

Happy very belated Pink Saturday, Mary. Can you believe I am still trying to visit from last Saturday, and here it is again.♥

You know I am loving all of this delectable pink bliss. I wish I could have some of each.

The Lucky Wife said...

New to food blogging (since January) so did not know about Pink Saturday until finding your recipe through Foodie View! Our Strawberry Freeze post would have been perfect! Will have to check it out for next time.

Your smoothie looks and sounds delicious. I love pink foods, and I think the pink lemonade cupcakes sound wonderful also!
