This weekend is “The beginning of Summer”, the kickoff to summer. But let’s not forget the true meaning of Memorial Day-a day on which those who died in active military duty are remembered.
The symbol of the white rose is of peace, sympathy and spirituality. It’s a symbol of honor to our heroes who have provided for us the safety and security of this nation.
With that said, this being a food blog I wanted to keep it clean and simple. No fancy recipes, just plain old healthy, delicious and colorful fruit for dessert. Let’s face it, there is no better dessert than fresh organic fruit for dessert. It is sweet, juicy, colorful, and packed with fiber, vitamins and anti-oxidants, Woo Hoo!!! Okay, I love fruit. I grew up having fruit on the table as a centerpiece and every night my mom would make this amazing, decorative fruit plate for a snack. In Europe, fruit is the dessert..and I’m from Europe, so that is how I eat..
Now if you are not that fond of eating fruit, I suggest you mix some in your ice cream, gelato or even with some fresh whipped cream to get you to start eating more fruit. If you love strawberries, (and they are in season now) try my strawberry muffins. (Recipe on my blog)They are the bomb!!!!! They have the taste of strawberry ice cream, yum, yum, yum!!!!!
Adding fresh mint, granola and yogurt with your fruit is also amazing!!! It’s a great way to start your day or have as a treat. I assure you, you will be very happy!
So, Happy kick-off to summer, be safe and healthy and as always, Enjoy!!!
