I went grocery shopping over the weekend.
And I got my hands on the most PERFECT oranges I have had in a very long time…Yay!
They were so BIG and SWEET and JUICY!
They tasted NOTHING like those sour oranges that I usually end up with, which make your mouth pucker…lol!
I swear I was in LOVE… and that too, with a fruit! hahaha
And I knew I had to make something FABULOUS with them.
But, what do I make?
Ooooo… the choices!
I finally decided to keep it SIMPLE so as to allow the flavor of these oranges to really shine through.
So, I made an EASY fruit salad with oranges, strawberries and bananas.
I served them in orange cups and tossed some chocolate chips on top.
And OMG! Each bite was so refreshing and soooo fruity.
Truly the best and healthiest way to cool down in this heat
Plus, everything was so VIBRANT and COLORFUL that it just made me happy and I couldn’t stop smiling, while eating it up…hehe.
It’s true what they say…Sometimes, the most SIMPLE things in life can bring you the most HAPPINESS
Don’t you agree?
My son (the PICKIEST eater in the world!), even approved of these!
That means this recipe is a KEEPER and you need to make it as soon as possible!
I added a little vanilla flavored greek yogurt in this salad…You can try different flavors, if you like.
If you are on a dairy-free diet, you can OMIT yogurt and it still tastes pretty good.
You can also add some whipped cream instead of yogurt BUT that would obviously increase the calories too
To make this fruit salad, you will need the following ingredients:
1 large orange
1 banana (sliced)
1/4 cup strawberries (sliced)
2 tbsp vanilla flavored greek yogurt
1/4 tsp cinnamon powder
1 tbsp mini chocolate chips
Some powdered sugar
And here are the steps:
Cut the orange in half.
Use a spoon to scoop out all the pulp but don’t throw it away.
Now, in a bowl, add sliced bananas, sliced strawberries, roughly chopped up orange pulp, yogurt and cinnamon.
Mix everything properly with a spoon.
Fill these orange shells with this mixture.
Sprinkle some powdered sugar and toss some chocolate chips on top.
And you are done! Dig in!
Well, that’s all for today.
Until next time, tata my lovelies
