Winter Fruit Bowl Recipe

Total Time20 mins
Course: Breakfast
Cuisine: American


  • 4 medium grapefruit
  • ½ cup orange marmalade
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 cups fresh cranberries
  • 3 medium bananas

My Suggestions for Additional Ingredients

  • fall apples or pears, peeled
  • seedless grapes
  • red or white blackberries or blueberries, in season
  • vanilla yogurt on top would be another treat and if you were looking for a nutritious meal you might think about a little granola.


  • I'm going to assume you are using fresh grapefruit. Not as easy as the slices you find in a jar but much more flavorful. If using fresh grapefruit, peel them, remove the pith, and section and be sure to work over a bowl so you can reserve any juices. If you do use the jarred slices, use the liquid they come in.
  • You need a cup of liquid so in a medium sized saucepan, add enough water to the natural juices to end up with a cup.
  • To this add the marmalade and sugar and bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Be sure to stir until the sugar dissolves.
  • Add the fresh cranberries and cook until the skins pop. This should take about 5 minutes but can take more. Immediately remove the pan from the heat and let it cool.
  • Add your grapefruit slices, cover and chill in the refrigerator.
  • Before serving, slice the bananas and add to the fruit bowl and serve.
