Breakfast is often the easiest to eat raw. Smoothies are our usual breakfast but this hearty fruit salad is a great change of pace. It is very adaptable to what ever fruit you have on hand. Choose the ripest seasonal and organic fruits you can find for optimal flavor and nutrition.
- 4 Fresh figs quartered
- 1 apple chopped
- 1 banana sliced
- 1 cup sliced strawberries or peaches or cherries halved and pitted
- 1 cup berries
- 1/4 cup hemp seeds or chia seeds
- 1/4 cup sunflower or pumpkin seeds
- 1/4 cup nuts (optional)
Mix well and serve immediately. If you must make this ahead add a few teaspoons of fresh lemon juice and mix to keep the fruit from browning.
Other options are kiwi, mango, melons, pears, you name it. This one has endless possibilities. (Let us know what your favorite combination is.)
