Fruit Soup



I love fresh fruit. You just feel better when you eat good, fresh food. Don’t you think? This fruit soup was so refreshing when we had been working hard in the hot sun all day. Nice and light but still pretty filling. This would be perfect for a summer side dish or just a nice snack. This simple recipe is a great way to involve your little ones in the kitchen. They can help you prep the fruit and add it to the bowl once you’ve sliced it. If you have kids that are a little bit older they can help you stir it all together. You just want to be careful not to stir it too much if you’ve added any softer fruits like bananas.  You could use whatever fruit you have on hand but make sure to let it chill in the refrigerator before serving. It wont thicken up, but it’s much better cold. We chose to leave the peels on our apples to keep more of the nutrients  and to add a little bit more color to the dish but you can peel your apples if you’d prefer or to make it more kid friendly.

Is Mandarin Orange Good During Pregnancy?

Mandarin oranges are helpful for pregnant women and their babies.

Mandarin oranges are a great source of the B-vitamin complex, such as folate or folic acid.
