Sunshine in a Bowl!

On a wintry day, there is nothing nicer than. . .

Sunshine in a Bowl Fruit Salad

1 banana, sliced into rounds
1 Fuji apple, diced with peel
2 Anjou pears, diced with peel
6 peach halves, canned in water pack
1/2 cup papaya pulp concentrate, juice sweetened
1/2 cup shredded coconut
1 tsp. sweet herb stevia

garnish with:
orange wedge
cilantro leaf

Prepare fruits and gently mix together in bowl. Adjust sweetening according to taste (add more stevia or papaya juice concentrate if desired). Spoon into individual service dishes and garnish. Use five almonds to make a 'flower' and add currants for the center. Add the orange wedge for height and color and add a fresh cilantro leaf for greenery.

Delicious! This was a big hit with my family! Enjoy sunshine in a bowl!
