How to Pick a Grapefruit

A ripe grapefruit should feel firm all the way around, with no soft spots or dents. It should be slightly oval with a slightly flat top and bottom. The white pith around the fruit segments is the most bitter part of the fruit, so to cut down on the bitterness, remove the pith.

How to Segment a Grapefruit

Using a sharp paring knife, cut off the top and bottom of the grapefruit. This allows you to set the grapefruit flat on a cutting board. Cut the peel and pith off, as close to the flesh as possible. Carefully hold the grapefruit in your hand and cut the segments of grapefruit away from the membrane. It’s ok if the pieces don’t stay intact, as you’ll be slicing the segments into smaller pieces anyway. It doesn’t have to be perfect. The goal is to remove as much of the white pith and membrane as possible.

More Topping Ideas

Feel free to swap out the almonds for crunchy granola like my chia almond granola or this strawberry granola. You can also add other nuts, chocolate chips, or coconut flakes for a different twist.

To segment the grapefruit, use a paring knife to remove the peel and the white pith that separates the grapefruit pieces. The goal is to cut all the skin away but leave as much of the fruit as possible!

I actually love grapefruits on their own. The bitterness totally doesn’t bother me. Does anyone else eat a grapefruit just like an orange?
