This was a lot of fun to arrange. I started with a bunch of my favourite fruits...pineapple, mango, papaya, kiwi, oranges, berries and melons.
Then I mixed up this dip:
1/2 cup plain Greek yogurt
1 1/2 tbsps honey
1/4 tsp lime zest
1 tbsp lime juice
3 tbsps cream cheese
Makes 3/4 cup
In a small food processor add some of the yogurt with the cream cheese and process until smooth. Then gradually add the rest of the yogurt and remaining ingredients.
I cut the top off the pineapple for interest on the platter and used the bottom as a bowl for the cherries. Half the cantalope became the container for the grapes and I kept the peel on some of the fruit, like pineapple, orange, kiwi, watermelon, for texture and visual interest. But also being practical, the peel makes the fruit easier to handle. I peeled the kiwi 2/3 around leaving the peel attached.
And aren't the honeydew hearts a cute feature!
I started this blog so my daughters could find all of our family favourite recipes in one place. It has actually grown into more than just the family favourites but also other recipes we've tried out in our kitchen. I don't like to fill up the post with alot of chatter. Sometimes there's a little story to tell, but usually I like to get right to the point. So this is for them, but hope you find some recipes that you like as well. I'll be sharing a lot of recipes, and along the way you'll find some crafty things and maybe some helpful hints too!
