Easy recipe: Oats and Honey Fruit Salad
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.
