Print Recipe
Prep Time:10 mins
Total Time:10 mins


  • 3 ripe California Avocados
  • 1 medium sweet pink grapefruit
  • 1/2 tsp kosher salt
  • 1 medium jalapeno seeded
  • 1 small yellow onion diced
  • 1/2 tsp cumin comino
  • 1 Tbsp chopped cilantro leaves


  • Cut the avocados in half and remove the pit.
  • Place the meat in a bowl and sprinkle with kosher salt.
  • Cut the sweet pink grapefruit in half and squeeze the juice from one half of the grapefruit over the avocado.
  • Mash the avocado and grapefruit juice, until chunky-smooth. (or to your textural preference)
  • Remove the meat from both halves of the grapefruit in whichever way is easiest for you. I prefer to cut them into quarters and cut the meat out of each quarter and then chop it.
  • Cut the grapefruit meat with a small knife and add it to the avocado mixture
  • Slice a jalapeno in half - remove the seeds and ribs (unless you like heat) and dice it.
  • Add the jalapeno to the avocado mixture.
  • Peel and dice a small yellow onion, add to the mixture.
  • Top with cumin and mix.
  • Chop cilantro leaves and measure out 1 Tbsp, add to avocado mixture.
  • Serve.


Make sure the grapefruit is sweet, and this guacamole will wow your friends and family with it's unexpected flavor.
