Fruit Kebabs

25 Apr

fruit kebabsThis is an appetizing way to serve fruit-one that will appeal to youngsters as well as to adults. I like to serve the kebabs along with spiced bran muffins for a healthy breakfast. They also make great snacks or dessert. You can make kebabs with any fruit that will stay on the wooden skewer! The picture shown is just a variety of ways to make them. Kids love to make them too, just make sure there is adult supervision.

Fruit Salad

13 Apr

fruit salad This fruit salad has me thinking SUMMER!!! Wishful thinking as it is only 28 degrees here in North Central  Iowa this morning! This is the best fruit salad in my opinion. You can make this easily year round because most of the fruit is canned. I have also made this fruit salad with frozen strawberries and blueberries since I moved to Iowa. Most fruit is seasonal and living here, I have had to learn how to modify my recipes. I hope you like this fruit salad!

You will need:

1 29 oz. can Peach Slices

1 20 oz. can Chunk Pineapple

1  small box dry Vanilla Pudding

1 lb. Strawberries, quartered

1 Banana, sliced

1/2 pint Blueberries

1 Bunch Grapes ( I like red)

1-2 Tablespoons Sugar, optional

1/2 C. Coconut flakes

In a large bowl, combine peaches, pineapple and vanilla pudding. This includes juice from the cans. Mix well until pudding is dissolved. Stir in strawberries, banana, blueberries, grapes, coconut and sugar. Refrigerate well. Serve cold.
