Fruit Salad

Me: ‘Would you like to have an apple?’

Kiddo : ‘No, I don’t like apple.’

Me: ‘ A banana or sweet lime juice?’

Kiddo : ‘No, I don’t like the smell.’ ( That’s his standard ‘rejection line’. I always wonder what he means by that! How can an apple or a banana smell bad?!)

Me: ‘How about some ice cream? With colorful sprinkles on top?’

Kiddo : ‘Ice cream? Oh yes, I LOVE ice cream!’

So a bowl of fruit salad with ice cream (and LOADS of sprinkles) = A happy mommy and a happy child!

Starting the 9th (and my second) edition of Blogging Marathon on a sweet note. I have chosen the theme of Soups and Salads.


  • Mixed Fruits         :        1 1/2 cups
  • Ice Cream              
  • Sprinkles, for decoration


  1. Cut the fruits into small cubes, mix everything together in a big bowl. I used one apple, one pomegranate, one banana and one sweet lime. This is what I had in the refrigerator. 
  2. Portion it out and add a scoop of ice cream on top and serve. You can use sprinkles for decoration if you like. 


This is not really a recipe, just fruits put together and enjoyed with a scoop of ice cream.
