Isn't it amazing how you can cut up some fruit (or veggies) for your kids and they are so disappointed with their snack...but put it in a cute dish, add a few berries, and they think they are in for a real treat! I can't say I blame then, but for some reason presentation seems to have an impact on how good it "tastes".
I am so excited to see the beginnings of summer as I walk through my local grocery stores. After a long winter, it puts such a smile on my face to see things like blueberries and raspberries on sale in the grocery ads.
Here is a recipe for a very simple fruit salad. I rarely use yogurt of any, but decided to use a little Greek yogurt for this one. For a vegan variety, you could substitute soy yogurt or even a little orange juice concentrate.
FRESH FRUIT SALAD (serves 4)
1 apple, chopped
1 banana, chopped
1 mango, chopped
1 cup sliced strawberries
1/2 cup blueberries
1/3 cup plain Greek yogurt, or ideally Soy Yogurt
2 TBS honey
Mix all ingredients in a bowl and that's it....a beautiful salad, or afternoon snack. I opted to top each serving with a few raspberries.
(The mango I used was on the very ripe side, so it kind of blended with the yogurt to make a bit of a "sauce"....still absolutely delicious.
