Fruit Salad

Whilst on my weekly food shop, I decided that I wanted to buy the ingredients to make a fruit salad (pretty much a spur of the moment craving!). I love fruit but I don’t eat them nearly as often as I should, and when I fill up my fruit bowl I often forget to eat them before they go bad. But I find that if I go to the effort of making a fruit salad I will eat it for breakfast or as a snack.

I didn’t have any specific fruit in mind so I just picked what I fancied and I am really pleased with how it turned out. Sorry for the picture heavy post but I couldn’t resist sharing the photos of my fruit salad (from every angle) – it just looks so inviting! The flavours and textures compliment each other really nicely – the crunch of the apples and grapes, the soft bananas and smooth nectarines work well together. Whenever I have made fruit salads in the past that I have enjoyed I haven’t made a note of them, so I thought that by posting the ingredients here I can refer to the fruit used previously and make it again or mix up the ingredients a bit. Maybe it will also inspire you to make your own fruit salad too :)

I used:

  • 2 apples
  • 3 bananas
  • 125g of blueberries
  • 200g of grapes
  • 2 pears
  • 2 nectarines
  • 1 litre of apple and mango juice (I like a juicy fruit salad!)

The ingredients listed filled 3 of my jars from Aldi perfectly. I store them in the fridge so the fruit keeps longer.

How do you like to eat your fruit? What combinations of fruit do you like to use when you make a fruit salad?
