Fruit Salad

Be it 6am, 10am or 12pm..breakfast is always a plan. After fasting for 8 hours the night before it only makes sense to have something nutritious, hydrating and tasty. So in light of a healthier 2015 and keeping those new years resolutions, fruit boats are the way to go. Keep things simple with fruit that’s in season and try different combos to switch things up. Having a platter of fruit every now and then is just like summer on a plate with no regrets.

Serves 2


1 Medium sized papaya

1 Orange

4 passion fruits

4 Small bananas

Natural Yoghurt to serve

Toasted pumpkin seeds for crunch

A drizzle of honey for that sweet tooth


Slice and de-seed the papaya into 4 boats. Then peel and chop the bananas, orange and mango.

Mix the fruit together and divide it into the papaya boats.

Place the rest of the fruit salad in individual bowls, Add the passion fruit and serve with a side of yoghurt.

I personally love to add some museli and a drizzle of honey for something a bit more filling if I need that extra energy.
