Get Sunshine Ready - Florida Grapefruit Smoothie Recipes

Just look at these delicious smoothies all using Florida Grapefruits - a super fruit! They're so nutritious and high in vitamin content.


Grapefruit is good for our immune system too; One-half of a medium grapefruit or an 8-ounce serving of grapefruit juice contains at least 100 percent of the Daily Value for vitamin C, which helps support a healthy immune system. A properly functioning immune system is necessary to help your body resist disease.

We probably all need to eat more fruit and research shows that 79% of women in the UK blame rain and cold weather for making them feel unproductive, but only 39% of these women eat their daily allowance of fruit in the winter so this isn't going to help!
