  • 2 red or pink grapefruit

  • 8 teaspoons packed light brown sugar

  • ¼ teaspoon ground cinnamon or cardamom

  • 2 teaspoons melt butter

  • 2 tablespoons heavy cream

  • 2 tablespoons nonfat or low-fat plain Greek yogurt

  • 1 teaspoon granulated sugar

  • ¼ teaspoon vanilla extract




  1. -Position oven rack about 3 inches from the heat source; preheat broiler. Line a rimmed baking sheet with foil.
  2.  -Cut each grapefruit in half, then trim a thin slice off the bottom so it sits level. With a paring knife or grapefruit knife, cut around each segment; remove any seeds. Place the grapefruit halves on the prepared baking sheet. Combine brown sugar and cinnamon (or cardamom) in a small bowl.  Brush each grapefruit half with butter, then sprinkle with about 2 teaspoons of the sugar mixture.

  3.  -Broil the grapefruit, watching carefully and rotating the pan front to back once halfway through, until the tops are bubbling and golden brown, 7 to 12 minutes.

  4.  -Meanwhile, beat cream in a small bowl until stiff. Beat in yogurt, granulated sugar and vanilla just until combined. Serve each grapefruit topped with a heaping tablespoon of the vanilla cream.
