I made this recipe on 5/29/09 for the " Taste of Yellow " event. I was lazy and used my blender to mix the banana and grapefruit together. I did add about two teaspoons of sugar to get the taste right for me. This drink is great afternoon "pick me up ". This so going to be made again. Thanks for posting and, " Keep Smiling :) "

I made this for breakfast this morning. I used a frozen banana with the grapefruit juice and put it in the blender. It was very refreshing and tasty. I really enjoyed it and think that it would also be a nice pick me up drink in the late afternoon. Thanks for sharing.
