Ingredients (Serves 2)
  • 1 Florida Grapefruit
  • 1 banana
  • 100ml/4fl oz Greek-style yoghurt
  • 1-2 tbsp runny honey
  • Mint sprigs, to decorate

Method

Cut the grapefruit in half, then cut a slice about 1cm/½in thick and reserve for decoration. Remove the skin and pith from the rest of the grapefruit and put the fruit in a medium-sized jug.

Peel and roughly chop the banana. Add it to the grapefruit along with the yoghurt and whizz with a hand-held blender. You could also use an upright blender or smoothie maker.

Add a little honey and whizz again. Taste and add more honey if necessary. Pour the smoothie into 2 glasses, decorate each with half a slice of the reserved grapefruit and a sprig of mint. Serve immediately.
