Did you know that February is National Grapefruit Month? My family loves grapefruit, so I made them this red grapefruit and pineapple smoothie – it’s the perfect way to start the day!
Our family has been hooked on Dole Red Grapefruit Sunrise bowls lately (they make a great on -the-go breakfast or snack!), so it was only a matter of time before my smoothie fanatic children started begging me to make them a grapefruit smoothie. The peeled grapefruit segments are picked at the peek of ripeness, and packed in 100% juice, so the pre-packaged bowls are actually perfect for smoothies. Just toss everything straight into the blender, and it’s ready to go!
What You’ll Need:
- 12 oz Orange Juice
- 1 Dole Red Grapefruit Sunrise Cup
- 1 cup Pineapple, frozen
- 1 cup Strawberries, frozen
- 1 cup Vanilla Greek Yogurt
- Handful of Ice
- Blend all ingredients until smooth. Serves 2-3.
This smoothie is incredible delicious and packed full of vitamins and nutrients, so it’s great anytime…but since grapefruit and pineapple are both thought to have fat burning and metabolism boosting properties, it’s extra awesome if you’re trying to slim down.

Would love to try this but can’t have anything that has seeds such as strawberries, is there something I can use in place of them?
Hi Jonnie, you can skip the strawberries, and I would suggest using either peaches or mangos in its place! 🙂
