Honey Oats Fruit Salad

A perfect fruit salad is what you want it to be. I have my own and I love it every minute for few reasons:

  • Easy to make
  • Low cost ingredients that are available 98% of the time.
  • Few ingredients
  • Delicious, fresh and healthy
  • Beautiful to the eyes
  • A nice thing to do for myself

The ingredients I use for this salad are the ones I recommend to meet the goal of making a fruit salad that is easy and low cost without jeopardizing taste, freshness and nutrition. You might want to choose other fruits, and change the amounts. Also, remember that there is a variety of juice berries you can use for this recipe; blackberries, raspberries, blueberries, among others.

Including oats and honey to the fruit salad will make it tastier and promotes the feeling of fulfillment. Consuming oats has been known to assist on weight lost and reduce cholesterol.

One full serving, good for any meal

Ingredients: Always wash your fruits

  • 1 cup of cantaloupe melon: Remove the seeds and flesh, peel and cut into bite-size pieces. You might want to cutthe whole melon into pieces and place in a bowl refrigerated for later use.
  • 1 Banana: Peel and slice into bite-size pieces.
  • 2-3 (1/3 cup) medium Strawberries: Slice into bite-size pieces.
  • 1/2 Kiwi: Peel and slice.
  • 1/3 cup of uncooked whole oats
  • 1 tablespoon of honey
  • Low fat whipped cream

You may want to combine all the fruits in a bowl and add the oats, honey and whipped cream. On the other hand, I love to make my fruit salad look appetizing and beautiful to the eyes. Use a nice bowl, margarita glass or dessert plate. Place ingredients in layers as listed.

This Honey Oats Fruit Salad is part of a healthy diet routine being developed. Hope you like it as I do.

      Your photos are beautiful. You are quite the photographer! I also liked your ingredients chart. Nice hub! We like mixed fresh fruit with yogurt and sliced almonds on top. Will have to give the raw oatmeal a try. Thanks! Voted up and useful.

      Yummy, easy and so inexpensive. I know there are so many other ways to make a fruit salad and that making them is not a real science, but I wanted to share it for all the benefits. Thanks for visiting.
