Recipe: Mega-Awesome Fruit Bowl Snack

Posted by:

I love mangos and usually eat a whole one at once.  However, since I’ve been trying to come up with more raw snack ideas, I decided to do something a little different with the last one I bought.  Instead of hunkering down with the vegetable peeler and a napkin, I cut up a few chunks and threw them in a bowl along with pineapple and some sliced strawberries.

And guess what?  It was pretty much the most awesome thing ever.  Especially with raw walnuts on top.

I almost feel like I’m cheating by posting this as a recipe, but it was so good that I had to share.  You can use pretty much any fruit.  I’d like to try adding some slices of kiwi, but chunks of melon or banana would work well, too.
