Grapefruit gazpacho with GF option.

A  Gazpacho  in  winter?

I  know.   An  arctic  front  is  keeping  us  company  that  makes  us  the  lucky  benefeciaries  of   minus  thirty  celsius  weather  here  in  the  prairies.

Gazpacho  tastes  best  when  it  is  screaming  summer  outside.  Look  at  the  ingredients –  it  is  a  powerhouse  of  antioxidants,  heart  healthy  oils,  fibers,  immune-boosting  vitamins  from   citrus,  with no  artificial  colours,  flavours  or  preservative.  There  you  have  it!  Detox  juice  in  a  cup.  That  also  makes it  an  ‘any-time-of-the-year’  kind  of  drink  for  me.

It  is  citrus  everywhere  friends.  This  is  how  I’m  enjoying  them.  What  are  your  plans  with  all  the  oranges,  clementines,  nectarines,  grapefruits  and  such.  I’d  love  to  hear  from you,  leave  a  note  for  me.  Happy  January.

Grapefruit   pieces                                                     2  cups
