Fruit Snack Mix recipe is one of my favourite snacks. It is one of the healthy snacks I endulge myself whether I´m at home, at the beach having picnic or when I´m having guests. The fruits that I use depend on where I am at the moment. When I´m in Germany, I make this fruit snack mix with strawberries, oranges, apples, peaches and kiwis and mix them with yogurt. But when I´m in the Philippines, I prefer to have this snack with the fruits that are in season like avocado, papaya, pineapples and sometimes with mangoes. It really depends on what fruits I long for and it should not be expensive.

When I bought the fruits this morning at our open Sunday market, my eyes were bigger than my stomach. Instead of making a small portion of Fruit Snack Mix for 4 persons, I made for a crowd. Well, I was thankful that there are always relatives living nearby.

Step by Step

  1. Wash the ripe papaya and cut it into half. Deseed the papaya by scooping the seeds by the use of tablespoon. Cut the half papaya without cutting the skin into many lenghts and crosswise sections so that the cuttings will form like cubes. Scoop the papaya meat with a tablespoon out of the skin. You can use the papaya skin as a bowl later for serving the fruit snack mix.
  2. Peel off the skin of the ripe pineapple. Get off the eyes of the pineapple fruit. Cut the pineapple into cubes.
  3. Cut the ripe avocado lenghtwise. Scoop the seed. Cut the meat of the avocado lenghtwise and crosswise without cutting the skin. Scoop the avocado by using a tablespoon. Spread lemon, lime or calamansi juice to the avocado meat to avoid it from becoming dark. Keep the avocado skin for serving the fruit snack mix later.
  4. Wash the watermelon and cut it into cubes. If possible deseed it. Weigh the walnuts and the raisins.
  5. Put all the ingredients into a big bowl. Add 2 tablespoons of honey or sugar. You can add more sugar or honey if the sweetness of the fruits are not enough for you. Add the raisins and mix them well.
  6. Put the Fruit Snack Mix on the empty papaya and empty avocado halves and serve decorated with walnuts on top. You can serve the rest of the fruit snack mix in dessert glasses or plates. Enjoy!

Tips:

  1. Always buy the fruits which are on season like strawberries and peaches because they are cheap.
  2. You can use ball scooper instead of tablespoon for scooping the fruits. The fruits will not be in cubes but in the form of balls and the fruits look nicer than the cubes.
  3. You can use either brown or white sugar and of course different kinds of honey but it´s healthier to omit the sweetener.
  4. Fruit Snack Mix with yogurt is yummy, too.
  5. Don´t forget to use lemon juice when using the fruits that will easily get brown like avocados and bananas to avoid oxidation.
  6. Serve your Fruit Snack Mix either in a fancy fruit dessert plate or in a glass.


I hope I gave you the desire to eat more fruits for your day to day meals. Remember, fruits have a lot of health benefits which are very good to our body.

Hi Suzie,

I wish I could give you that now, but I´m very far at the moment. So just try making it with the fruits that you have in Dublin. I hope it´s not so cold there at the moment as I have heard the kids in Europe might seek the Easter eggs under the snow. I wish you a happy Easter holiday;-)

This looks so good!! My pregnancy has me craving fruit so I'm pretty much wanting to lick the screen right now ^_^ I'm most certainly going to have to make this very soon. I just love your idea to put nuts with those fruits. Voting a bunch and pinning!


Thelma Alberts profile image

Thelma Alberts 3 years ago from Germany Author

Congrats to your pregnancy Mama Kim. I know how it feels craving for something to eat which is not at home. When I was pregnant, I used to craved for sour tropical fruits and when my hubby bought them in an Indonesian shop in Arnheim, The Netherlands, I did not like them anymore. There was no Asian shop in the town in Germany where we lived before. So my hubby drove to the neighbouring country just to buy those fruits. Those were green mangoes. When the green mangoes were bought, I kept them for a few days to ripen. Weird, is it not?

Thanks for your dropping by and for your pinning.

The presentation of the fruit is absolutely beautiful! In 2 more months we will be moving into strawberry season here and I really look forward to it. One of my favorite fruits is watermelon. I can and do eat it 12 months out of the year. I love it with cantaloupe and sliced bananas. I live in the heart of apple country so we always have an abundance of New York State apples that are delicious.

Thelma Alberts 20 months ago from Germany Author

That´s great pagesvoice. Yes, of course you can use Cantaloupe together with watermelons and other fruits. That would be refreshing for the hot summer. Don´t forget to put lemon juice on the banana slices so they will not become brown. Thanks for your comment and enjoy your weekend.
