Not overly sweet, this elegant, seasonal dessert is a grapefruit-lover's delight. To whip the maple-infused cream into fluffy peaks with ease, start with a frozen metal bowl and whisk. Using chilled tools helps the cream to develop and hold body quickly.
Serves 4 (serving size: 1 grapefruit half and about 1 1/2 tablespoons cream)
1. Preheat broiler to high.
2. Place grapefruit halves on a baking sheet, cut side up. Sprinkle evenly with sugar and ginger. Broil 8 minutes or until grapefruit begins to char.
3. Place cream in a chilled medium bowl; beat with a whisk until slightly thickened. Add yogurt, syrup, and vanilla to bowl; beat with a whisk until fluffy. Top grapefruit halves with cream mixture.
