You gotta try this grapefruit-based smoothie called The Pinkman
An all-fruit smoothie featuring grapefruit? I’m sold.
Let’s call it The Pinkman.
A Saturday morning surprise
You know some things taste better on a hot summer day? Or after a workout?
This grapefruit smoothie is one of those things.
Shalva handed me a glass of this drink on a scorchingly hot Saturday morning. I had been finishing up a house project so had worked up a sweat (and appetite).
I had one sip and was speechless.
So refreshing, so good.
If something could taste like summer, this would be it.
The Pinkman; quite possibly the best all-fruit smoothie on the planet.
Here’s an Instagram of the first time we made it.

And if you’re wondering how we came up with the name, here’s a two-minute stream of consciousness video of us naming it.
Deliciously tart, wonderfully refreshing grapefruit smoothie.

Useful tips for The Pinkman
Most blenders should be able to handle this drink. But for the silky-smoothest, restaurant-quality consistency you pictured here, you’ll want to use a Vitamix. Pictured below is our Vitamix Pro 750, the one we use several times daily.
This smoothie is best enjoyed immediately.
But because there's no added ice or water, it holds its consistency pretty well and is actually quite good the next day. (We made a batch the other night for our road trip the next morning!)
