True Grapefruit ice cream in a black serving container

All the wonderful flavors of grapefruit, wrapped in the lusciousness of ice cream! A delightfully sweet and tart treat. Recipe submitted by Kimberly Wheeler.


1-1/4 cup whole milk
3/4 cup sugar
Dash of salt
20-24 packets True Grapefruit
1-3/4 cup whipping (not heavy) cream
1 teaspoon Mexican vanilla
Red food coloring

  1. In medium bowl whisk together 1 cup milk, sugar, dash of salt, and 24 packets True Grapefruit.
  2. Gently blend in whipping cream, remaining 1/4 cup milk, vanilla, and 1-2 drops red food coloring.
  3. Chill covered in fridge for 90 minutes to overnight, the more time the better.
  4. Pour mixture into an ice cream maker, and run per the machine’s instructions (most likely around 15-minutes).
  5. Spoon ice cream into containers and chill in freezer to harden. Flat containers work best for freezing quickly, and gives it a creamier texture.
