Hello Fruit Loops!
Or maybe I shouldn’t call you fruit loops. After all, you are all awesome, and fruit loops… well, they taste like cardboard. But here’s something that doesn’t taste like cardboard:
My breakfast this morning: Single-Serving Oatmeal Cake
Along with the oatmeal cake, I made a gorgeous fruit salad. Normally, I don’t like fruit salad. (It all melds together, meaning you can’t taste the distinct flavors of each fruit.) But every now and then, I crave something I don’t usually like. Is this weird?
This is actually my sister’s recipe, and it could not be easier. But she says whenever she makes it for a party or brunch, everyone asks for the recipe!
Addictive Fruit Salad
- juice of one and 1/2 lemons
- handful fresh mint leaves (about 1/2 cup)
- 1 tbsp powdered sugar (I left this out, because I think fruit is sweet enough on its own. But my sister always uses it when she brings the salad to parties.)
- fruit of choice (about 6-8 cups total)
Blend together the first three ingredients (I used a Magic Bullet) and pour over the fresh fruit. Stir to coat. Best if eaten at least one hour after making, so the flavors have a chance to marry.
Hello summer fruit season!
Above, with some of the best fruit, during my time in France.
I’m most excited for the raspberries, strawberries, blueberries, and honeydew.
