With the festivities of the Christmas season now in full swing, I wanted to share with you one of my favourite additions to the family breakfast table. For when the sun is shining, and day ahead is filled with family and celebrations, we like to keep things light and simple at breakfast time (no doubt saving all important calories for later in the day).
Namely – a Fancy Fruit Platter.
Put a bowl of whole fruit in front of me, and I will look at it with relative ambivalence. But slice the fruit and make it into a salad or a fruit platter? Well you won’t keep me (or the kids!) away from it.
On this occasion we filled the platter with all the wonderful seasonal fruits the market had on offer. Mango, melon, pineapple, pear, passionfruit, kiwi fruit, apricots, nectarines, strawberries, grapes and blueberries.
Served with some lovely vanilla bean yoghurt and honey granola, and we had ourselves quite the delicious start to the day.
