I'm sure I'm like most of you out there, when you ask yourself, how can I add fruit or veggies to my lunch or dinner? It gets hard to always have fresh fruit and veggies for every meal. So I am happy to say, I have found a simple solution!
I recently came upon small glass bowls at a local dollar store. I saw them and thought, "Those are the perfect bowl for fruit and veggie cups! Not to big, not too small, just the right size (as Goldilocks would say)." So...I got them.
(I have to admit, I also thought they would be a great little dessert cup!)
We've been using these about 3 times a week for dinner, and random lunches. They're so fun. You cut up what fruit you have on hand and serve! No cooking or prepping before hand (other than chopping). My kids call them "rainbow fruit cups." I try, (notice the word TRY) to get as many colors as I can into the cup. Some day's I also try to just get all fruit the same color. It gets pretty fun! I love knowing I'm providing my family healthy natural fruit, that goes with ANY meal! Fast, easy and DELISH!
Some of our favorite combinations:
-Apples, Oranges, Kiwi (as shown above)
-Apples, Bananas, Oranges
-Kiwi, Blueberries, Strawberries
-Raspberries, Bananas, Mango
-Watermelon, Raspberries, Strawberries (Red cup)
-Oranges - Mango - Cantaloupe (Orange cup)
-Kiwi - Honey dew - Green Apples (Green cup)
You get the idea! Have fun with it, enjoy fresh fruit cups with your family and friends! DELISH!
*** Sometimes our favorite fruits are very expensive, sometimes it's cheaper to buy them frozen. I take out some frozen blueberries (for example) and rinse them in a colander under warm water to thaw them out. They taste AWESOME! We do this with a lot of berries!
