Think Pink - Grapefruit Breakfast Power

Total Time
Prep 10 mins
Cook 7 mins

Easy and fast to make and will give you the power for the day. This also makes a nice dessert. Add some fresh leaves of coriander (or peppermint, sage) for an additional flavour.


  1. Peel grapefruit. Be sure that you also have removed the white skin, which is bitter.
  2. Cut grapefruit into thin slices, or cut out the grapefruit filets from the grapefruit.
  3. Arrange grapefruit on a plate.
  4. Put 1 or 2 lobes of cottage cheese on grapefruit.
  5. In a small sauce pan heat honey and sesame seeds. Bring to a single boil for a few seconds. Remove from heat and let stand for about 5 minutes.
  6. Pour warm honey mixture over grapefruit and cottage cheese. Garnish with a few fresh coriander leaves and serve.
  7. Have a great day!

I made this for a salad tonight, just doubled it for my DH and I. It was very good, I didn't have sesame seeds, so I used slivered almonds and it tasted great. Love the honey.

What a refreshing breakfast! I love cottage cheese in the morning but I usually have it on toast. This was a lovely change. I too, followed Mamma's Kitchen in using the jarred version instead of the fresh grapefruit. I found that I was out of sesame seeds so I used poppy seeds....just loved this! I left off the coriander as that did not appeal to me. Well, Thorsten, again you amaze me. Ever thing of changing occupations?

Fantastic breakfast Thorsten! I used jarred grapefruit sections that I find in my local supermarket in the produce section. Saves lots of time! AND I cheated and heated the honey and sesame in the microwave. I also added a small spoonful of flax seeds just because. This breakfast really gets you off to a great start! Thanks Thorsten!
