Red Grapefruit Breakfast Parfaits

Red Grapefruit Breakfast Parfaits @EclecticEveryday

The best part about living in Florida in winter is citrus season. We have a quickly growing margarita tree in a ¬†yard. It’s a tree grafted with several varieties of citrus, so we have 5 different citrus fruits on one tree. It’s so wonderful, and so many of our neighbors have citrus trees too. Neighbors and friends share different varieties of citrus, and you can go for a walk in your neighborhood or down one of the local trails and sneak fruit from neighbors trees that are hung heavy with so much fruit. Not that I’ve ever done that or anything ūüôā

But even with so much citrus, I still find myself buying my favorites at the store. I always make sure to buy a bag of honey bell oranges and a few ruby red grapefruits, as well as some meyer lemons when they’re in season. Those are my absolute favorites. So I was so excited to find Dole’s new¬†Red Grapefruit Sunrise Fruit Bowls in 100% juice. Now I can have those delicious ruby red grapefruits, already prepared, any time of year I want. They make a perfect breakfast in parfaits like I have here, or even a great afternoon snack.

We’ve been celebrating all month by enjoying fresh Florida Grapefruit in a variety of recipes, and when I run out of the fresh fruit, I have these handy grapefruit bowls ready to go. They make great on the go breakfasts, snacks and even late night desserts.

    Citrus season in my favorite time in the winter because it brings a little Florida sunshine to the great white north.

    We’ve tried to grow citrus without success. I’m wondering if this would be good with other fruits like berries or bananas?

    That margarita tree sounds very cool…how fun to have your pick of citrus on one tree. Red grapefruits are always a favorite in our house, and this breakfast parfait would be a hit, for sure!

    5 types of citrus fruit? I now officially hate you. ūüėČ My dream is to live somewhere where I can have a lemon tree. But 5 types of citrus?! Oh my gosh. That would be amazing.

    And these parfaits look like a great way to start the day!

    No way, I didn’t even know that was possible! I want a tree like that in my yard (which means moving away from this frozen tundra)! And this is exactly what I’d want to eat for breakfast any day – looks great.

    I’m so jealous of your citrus trees! I WISH I could get super fresh grapefruit here in NY. Love the look of the parfait. It’s the perfect way to show off winters fresh fruit.

    That margarita tree sounds like the most magical thing ever…I can’t believe it really exists!! If I lived down there i would definitely need a grapefruit tree though – I love them! My grandma used to mail me a box for my birthday ever year… they’re so much better than hat you can buy in the stores up here.
