Fruit Salad

Fresh fruit is colorful & nutritious. Fruit salad made from fresh fruit is light, sweet and healthy!! Fruit salad is very simple to make and is an absolute treat for all fruit lovers! 


It is a good evening snack for kids and best way to sneak in their not-so-favorite fruits along with the other fruits that they like. Use this recipe just as a guide and feel free to substitute fruits/nuts that you might like.


Ingredients
Banana - 1/2 (slice them into thin pieces)
Apple - 1/2 (cut into small pieces)
Pear - 1/2 (cut into small pieces)
Cherries - 6 - 8 nos (pitted & cut into halves)
Raisins - 1/6 cup
Chopped nuts - 1 tbsp (pecans, walnuts, hazelnuts)
Honey - 3-4 tbsp
Lime juice - 1 tbsp
Ground flax seed - 1 tsp
Granola & almonds - 1 tbsp

I loved this fruit salad and guess what, my daughter loved it too. What an easy way to get her eat more fruits !!!!


Tips:

  • Raisins can be replaced with dates.
  • You can add as much fruits as you want.
  • Mint leaves can be finely chopped & added for freshness in taste.
  • Serve it with ice cream on top, if you are not so conscious about calories.
