Winter can be a little depressing when it comes to fresh produce but luckily, citrus fruit is the silver lining! I love grapefruit and this parfait is a fun way to switch up your yogurt routine when berry season is over.

These grapefruit parfaits use protein-packed Greek yogurt, tart grapefruit, and crunchy almonds to create a quick and easy breakfast that is healthy and delicious! Of course, you don’t have to limit this to breakfast. I had mine for dinner!

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.

Once your grapefruit is segmented and chopped, this recipe comes together easily!

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