  • Recipe Submitted by on

Category: Desserts

 Ingredients List

  • 3-5 ea large Texas Ruby-Red or Rio Star grapefruit, juiced
  • 2 c sugar (adjust, within wide range, to taste)
  • 2 c heavy whipping cream
  • : fresh mint leaves or maraschino cherries for garnish (optional)
  • Juice the Texas Ruby-Red or Rio Star grapefruit. Mix juice with about half
  • the sugar and put into the ice cream machine. It will take about 20-30
  • minutes of freezing before it's ready.
  • While the ice cream machine is working, whip the cream until it forms firm
  • peaks, adding sugar to (stiffen slightly and) sweeten it to taste.
  • When the sorbet is well frozen but still spoonable, layer alternating
  • layers of whipped cream and ruby-red grapefruit sorbet (starting and ending
  • with whipped cream) into tall stemmed parfait glasses, making sure you have
  • a nice mound of whipped cream on the top of each glass. (Try to collapse
  • the air pockets which will try to form as you add each layer!)
  • Add a sprig of fresh mint and/or a maraschino cherry or two on top as a
  • garnish, if desired. Serve immediately with a long ice tea spoon in each
  • glass.
  • This is a wonderful, refreshing, light dessert... a delightful combination
  • of sweet and tart, contrasting textures and colors, loaded with Vitamin C,
  • and icy cold. Most people don't think of grapefruit as a dessert item, but
  • this proves how wrong they were!
