Strawberry Grapefruit Ice Cream

Grapefruit Ice cream

Our 21 day detox is over! It was a very good learning experience but I am also very glad that it is done. It was sometimes a little stressful restricting my diet more than it already is. However, I did learn where I needed to change some eating habits so that was beneficial. It is definitely a little rough transitioning out of the detox though.

Grapefruit was one of the only fruits we could have on this detox and we had a bunch leftover so I wanted to do something different with it. My husband loves grapefruit so this was something I made for him. Grapefruit can be quite tart to me so I added some strawberry and coconut milk to help level out the tartness. This is really a super easy and fast mix to make and then you can just throw it in your ice cream maker.

I used the hallowed out grapefruit as bowls. It is a super easy and fun way to serve the ice cream. I just stuck it in the oven on 200 for about an hour until it dried out some.

Enjoy!
