  1. Juice the grapefruit. Pour the grapefruit juice into a blender. Add strawberries, banana, yogurt, vanilla extract, *spices and crushed ice. Combine all the ingredients in an electric blender and whirl until smooth.
  2. * Note: For my second version I omitted the grated ginger and added a pinch of ground star anise.
