Simple Kitchen: Fruity summer
By Errin Stevenson
June 24, 2008 | If you are like me, living in Utah
can be hard because there is a short fruit season here.
So, during these few months, enjoy! Fruits are great
for any meal during the summer. They are very healthy,
light and fun to serve.
My first recipe, a fruit smoothie, is a breakfast
recipe and one that can have everyone smiling. With
a few simple ingredients, it is a healthy treat.
Smoothie by Jill Stewart
3ž4 c. diced pineapple
1 small banana
1ž4 c. orange juice concentrate
1ž2 c. plain nonfat yogurt
1ž2 c. ice cubes
Puree 3ž4 cup diced pineapple, 1 small banana, and
1/4-cup orange juice concentrate in your blender. Then
add 1/2-cup nonfat plain yogurt and 1ž2 cup ice cubes,
and process again until smooth. This recipe serves two.
For lunch parties, fruit kabobs are a great dish!
These are pretty, easy, and super good! Just a few fresh
fruits and some kabob wooden sticks is all you will
2 lbs. strawberries (washed)
2 lbs grapes (washed)
Simple cut pineapple and cantaloupe into large pieces.
Then with your kabob sticks, place fruits in any decorative
order. Serve with simple fruit sauce which contains
one container of Yoplait yogurt (any fruit flavor) and
one small tub of Cool Whip.
Dinner calls for dessert. For a quick and simple summer
dessert, just go the easy way and buy an angel food
cake with strawberries and bananas. Cut the fruit up
small and simple serve over angel food cake. Then spoon
a large spoonful of whipped whipping cream on top! Everyone
will love it!
