I am trying to find different ways to eat fruit. I don't want to get tired of just plain ol' fruit. Do y'all have any ideas on how to prepare or eat it? I know raw is the best way to consume it but there has to be some different ways. I also would like to know if there are certain fruits when combined and eaten enhance each flavor. Any Ideas???

There are many ways; one of them would be to blend them into puree and mix them with fresh yogurt. This makes a healthy and delicious breakfast. Also you can cut them into small pieces and mix them with jelly and custard-This would make a Yummy dessert. You can also add them in your pan cakes as toppings. Milk shakes or smoothies using combination fruits and some honey is a great energy booster. Pineapple, apple, peaches, grapes make good pizza toppings too. Try them out and see if you like them.

One way I've found to jazz up melons is to add a squirt of lime. I was shocked the first time I had it on canteloupe! Fruit salads are also excellent. I make fresh fruit smoothies for my guy and he absolutely loves them.

What I do to keep fruit interesting is do things like: apple and peanut butter. Or Strawberry's and light whipped cream. Combos like that.

I like to mix berrid together, for example strawberries blueberries & raspberries go together really well so you should take advantage of that while they are still just about in season! Raw doesn't have to be the only way to eat fruit, fruit juices and smoothies are also very good for you. You can also have fruit hot ie in pies or crumbles, rhubard, apples and brambles are best, in fact you really would only eat brambles hot anyway. There are so many ways to eat fruit! Hope that helps.

Grapes and cherry tomatoes are good together, or just get all the fruit you have, cook it then liquidize it, adding cream and sugar to taste

I usually blend strawberry and banana with vanilla ice cream. I also like combining melon and lemon. Carrots with lemon taste good too but you need to add sugar.
