Other Ideas For Fruit Salad From TaraCosta.com Members

You all have awesome tips! My mother always told me sharing is caring – so I wanted to let you all in on some of the great things other members do with fruit.  Larao68 – Normally takes some applesauce and fresh fruit (I like kiwi, peaches and strawberries), toss it in a bowl with Greek yogurt, add a little Granola viola! Yummy snack. I love this idea, I would probably would switch it up a little bit by using organic unsweetened apple sauce and if I still wanted a crunchy flavor with less calories than granola I would give fiber one bran cereal or grape nuts a try with it.
Thank you for this tip, I will definitely be trying it!

Marika, shared one of her favorite fruit recipes. She takes a couple of different fruits (her favorite combo mango, strawberries, kiwis, a banana and a pear) and she cut them to small pieces, or if you want the fast alternative you buy the fruits frozen and already in pieces. She then puts them in a baking tin and grates some white chocolate on it and puts it in the oven until the chocolate has melted.

If I was doing this, I would most likely swap out the white chocolate with dark chocolate, also I would just head up the chocolate then dribble it on the cold fruit, but baking the fruit for a little is worth the try.

Muggle311 loves the frozen mixed fruit idea, but goes to wholesale place and gets large bag and adds pineapple, bananas and apples. If she is having a little more fun and wants a tropical taste she sprinkles with rum and coconut extract. I think this would be an excellent crowd pleaser =)
She also likes to combine peeled sliced apples with a bit of Splenda (depends on the sweetness of the apples) and pumpkin pie spice. Toss it together and you have a raw apple pie! I will also be trying this with a stevia extract like Truvia or Purvia.

Thank you all for sharing with me your tips. If we all work together with ideas on how to curb sweet tooth cravings or junk food cravings – we will all be better off. I really appreciate all of it!
