Grapefruit + Ricotta

2/03/2014


Remember when I had that weird obsession with grapefruits when I was pregnant? Yeah. I know. Weird. But hey guess what? It's back. No I'm not pregnant. 

The other morning (weekend morning, when I might actually have time to eat breakfast), I made this. And yes, I put it in a fancy bowl because I knew I would be photographing it (good thing it was good)! This is what it is: grapefruit, ricotta, honey and basil. It seriously rocked my socks off. Bet you never thought you'd hear that when describing grapefruit. I would love to say that it's healthy except that it is whole milk ricotta, because honestly you just cannot buy the non fat one. Trust me.


Anyway, if you're so inclined, give it a whirl and tell me what you think! :)

I wouldn't think to combine these two but it seems like the flavors would be delicious together.

My fiancé bought fat free ricotta once and I have never let him live it down. Awful! He claims it was an accident, but now I don't let him in the dairy aisle alone! :) xo

This sounds amazing. I'm not the biggest fan of grapefruit, but the addition of cheese and honey sounds perfect.
