Pearly pink pie… Is this girly-girl heaven or what?!

All I need now is a saddled unicorn and a bowl full of glitter.

All jokes aside, this Grapefruit Cream Pie is a thing of beauty and should not be taken lightly.

It’s bold, citrusy, and piled high with silky whipped cream.

This time of year, I use every possible excuse to whip up cream pies…. A picnic. A neighborhood watch meeting. A goldfish funeral.

Pie is always a welcomed surprise and/or stealthy distraction.

Grapefruit Cream Pie is my current muse. An alluring cousin of beloved Lemon Cream Pie, yet with a unique bitter-sweet flavor and blushing hue.

Think of it as the slightly more glitzy cousin with sparkly lip gloss and 4 inch heels.

Unlike my other fluffy cream pies with a cream cheese pudding base, this Grapefruit Cream Pie is more similar to a chess pie. A baked custard pie with a bit of grain for structural support.

This allows the distinct grapefruit flavor to shine, and not be overshadowed by any other ingredient.

The filling is made with eggs, flour, fresh ruby red grapefruit juice, evaporated milk, and Wholesome!® Organic Blue Agave for sweetness.

The evaporated milk is important because it doesn’t curdle with the grapefruit juice like regular milk could. The eggs give the pie its silky texture. The fresh-squeezed grapefruit juice offers perky appeal.

Yet the Wholesome!® Organic Blue Agave allows the pie to be sweetened without gmos, unnecessary chemicals, and preservatives.

Agave makes a marvelous baking ingredient because it blends effortlessly into batter without sugar crystals settling at the bottom.

Since its sweetness is concentrated, you can use less agave than sugar, making it a marvelous low glycemic and lower calorie sweetener!

Bake the Grapefruit Cream Pie until the outside it set, but the inside is still a little jiggly, then chill so the interior can cool and set.

Top with an ample amount of whipped cream and serve!

    What a lovely pie…and it’s really high time grapefruit quit playing third fiddle to lemons and limes; this proves it!
