Sometimes the simplest of the recipes are the best. When deciding what to make for the third day of single serve desserts theme, my son asked me to make a Single Serve Fruit Salad Bowl. My boys love fruits and will eat it anytime of the day. They have fruits for breakfast, along with lunch and also as a snack. I usually have a choice of 4 or 5 weeks in a particular week and serve them in turn.
Last year when I went to India, I noticed that my aunt was packing different cut fruits, all mixed together in a box for snack for my cousins. She gave a bowl of the mixed fruits to my boys and they really liked the idea of eating them mixed up instead of just eating one at a time. So, at times I chop up a few fruits together and give them as a fruit bowl.
When making fruit salad for a crowd, I usually use my Fruit salad with Mango pulp recipe or make the Mexican style fruit salad called the Bionico. Today, when I cut a few fruits and mixed them and was getting ready to serve it for the boys, they asked me top it with some whipped cream. It tasted amazing and we were discussing about how a simple fruit salad can taste this exotic with just an addition of whipped cream.
I used whatever fruits I had in hand. The salad today had apples, bananas, grapes, mango and strawberries. You could use any fruit of your choice. I also used store bought whipped cream, but if you make it a little planned ahead, then use freshly whipped cream for even better flavor.
