Nut and Seed Crumble:

  • 1 egg white
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 1/4 cup sliced almonds
  • 2 tablespoons sunflower seed kernels
  • 1 tablespoon sesame seeds


  • 1/2 cup full-fat plain Greek yogurt
  • 2 teaspoons honey
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 ruby red grapefruit
  • 1 blood orange
  • 1 naval orange


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 F and line a small baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a medium bowl whisk the egg white, sugar, cinnamon, oil, and salt. Add the almonds, sunflower seeds, and sesame seeds and continue stirring.
  3. Spread them evenly on the baking sheet and bake for about 15 minutes, until they are golden brown.
  4. In a small bowl mix the yogurt, honey, and vanilla and spread it onto four salad plates in a thin layer.

  6. Put the fruit on top of the yogurt and sprinkle the nut crumble.
  7. Serve immediately.
