Notes

  • Slice grapefruit however you feel comfortable. Use whatever greens you have on hand, it's great on lettuce, spinach, kale, arugula, etc.
  • Swap out hemp hearts for chia seeds or other seeds, same with pistachios-they can be swapped for other nuts.
  • Use fresh or concentrate orange or mandarin orange juice because they're sweeter than grapefruit juice.
