Back in 2020 when we were both on a short-term diet, my husband invented a refreshing and delicious low-calorie fruit drink made with a grapefruit, one of our permitted fruits at the time. Now that we’re no longer on that protocol, we have since added an orange as well. John’s pink grapefruit orange slushy is truly delicious, suitable for children and adults alike, and with its lovely frothy top, you feel like you’re drinking a very special cocktail!
Suitable for various approaches to diet, such as low carb, low calorie, Weight Watchers, Slimming World, Changing Habits Hunter Gatherer Protocol, HCG protocol (all phases), paleo, keto, dairy free, gluten free, alcohol free, no added sugar, vegetarian, vegan, and I’m sure many more.
John’s pink grapefruit orange slushy is also a great choice for everyday life once you’ve reached your target weight! I serve it all year round, and it’s especially appreciated at barbecues in the summer, and no-one ever guesses it’s healthy! Serves 2-4.
This recipe is suitable for Thermomix TM6, TM5 and TM31.
- Peel grapefruit and orange, either by hand or by cutting a thin slice off each end and cutting off peel from top to bottom (see step photo).
- Divide peeled grapefruit and peeled orange into 3-5 cm pieces, place in TM bowl, add ice cubes and 450 g water, blend 2 min/speed 8, then have a taste and see 1st tip if you’d like it thinner. Serve straight away and enjoy, with compliments from John – cheers!
