From the Desert to the Beach: Cactus Grapefruit Smoothie

Being a sample size is something I’ve always taken pride in. Like, if someone says, “oh, I just broke up with my boyfriend,” I somehow have to bring up that I’m a sample size, even if it’s completely irrelevant. Kinda like the time Anjelina Jolie and Brad Pitt complimented me at a restaurant. Those are the kind of things, that should always be known. Well, anyways, this past week, I was completely humbled while shopping  sample sales. It was a total “Mean Girl” moment. I was excited about buying new swimwear when I noticed that all of the samples where a bit…snug. Rather than being subjected to  more humiliation, I decided to just walk out and head to the local dessert shop for comfort. But then, I thought, “why am I being so hard on myself?” I mean gaining a little weight happens to the best of us, just look at January Jones in Mad Men.  So instead of eating my pain away, I lifted my head high and called my aunt (my go to person for beauty tips) and she recommended a cactus grapefruit smoothie, to help me shed those extra (10 5 pounds). And let me tell you, my body is back and better than ever.

*FYI: This smoothie does not taste good but it works WONDERS. It helps clean out your digestive tract, making your stomach flatter and your weight lighter.  For best results make this and drink in the morning before your first meal of the day.

What you will Need:

♥1 Peeled Grapefruit (if it’s super large, you can use 1/2 of it instead of a whole one)

♥ 1/2 of a Fresh Cactus Leaf

♥ 1/2 cup of water


1. Cut 1/2 if the cactus into squares and cut the grapefruit into cubes  then toss it into the blender.  Add the water and  Blend until it looks like a smoothie.


2. Pour into a cup and drink!


Now you are one step closer to that bikini bod!
