Reviewer #1 – Mandy

Mission:  Get back into healthy eating with a yummy “treat” I can’t resist.
 

 

Details:

  • I followed the recipe as written minus the preserves as I forgot to pick that up at the grocery store.
  • Also, I didn’t get exact with the types of fruits they called for. Not a huge fan of kiwi so I substituted with others.

Tips & Tricks Learned:

It was super easy and delicious so I didn’t really have much to change or learn. Maybe use it as a way to use the fruit in your kitchen that is getting over ripe. It all does blend together and maybe gets a little mushy so it’s perfect for using up fruit!

Pros:

Easy. Tasty. Crowd Pleasing.

Even my dad who doesn’t really like anything said “it’s OK.” (That’s GOOD in his book!)

Cons:

I don’t really have any.

It was a tad sweet so you may not need to use the sugars to sweeten it even more… although I’m sure they help with the juice that develops.

Conclusion:

Make it! Now!

 

 

Reviewer #2 – Sheri

Mission: This twist on salsa looked sweet and refreshing. Something my kids would actually enjoy! I referred to the Annie’s Fruit Salsa recipe on Morgan Moore’s blog, One More Moore. Seven quick and easy ingredients and some dicing…I love dicing.
 

Details:

The ingredients:

  • 2 kiwi’s, peeled and diced
  • 2 apples, peeled, cored and diced
  • 8 oz. raspberries
  • 1 lb strawberries, diced
  • 2 Tbsp sugar
  • 1 Tbsp brown sugar
  • 3 Tbsp preserves

A no-brainer recipe – dice and combine.

The cinnamon chips were also quite simple. Just cut up flour tortillas, sprinkle them with cinnamon and sugar, and bake them at 350° for about 10 minutes. Viola.

Tips & Tricks Learned:

I can’t stand the look of browning apples. Just one of those things that will turn me off from consuming this delicious treat, so I used a lemon to help preserve them.

Pros:

Easy and delicious, and you can vary it with the fruits you have on hand.

Cons:

None!

 

Conclusion:

This recipe was super easy…that’s because I like dicing. If you don’t like chopping, then it’s not for you.

A great little tid-bit; if you don’t have the time to make your own cinnamon chips (although I do recommend you do) store-bought cinnamon pitas work just great with this salsa. It was devoured quickly and made the perfect dish to bring to the summer BBQ.

 

 

Reviewer #3 – Amanda

Mission: To whip up a yummy and mostly healthy snack with fruit I already have (that was my mission anyway).
 
 

Details:

I will admit that as usual I am trying to be all sorts of lazy thrifty here and I wanted to use fruit I already had at home instead of going out to hunt down what was used in the original recipe.

My fruit list looked a little like this:

  • Kiwi
  • Raspberries
  • Strawberries
  • Blueberries
  • Orange Marmalade (this I did buy)
  • I also halved the recipe because I know my kids are a bit picky and I didn’t want to end up having to eat the entire bowl myself! I was smart because of course they didn’t LOVE it. They tried it and ate a little but I mostly had to finish it. I tried to save it for the next day but the flavors got a little too intense.

Tips & Tricks Learned:

I think pinapple would have been a great addition and I would stick with a strawberry or raspberry marmalade because the orange had a slightly bitter taste which I am pretty sure turned my kids off. Apples (which I didn’t use) would have added a nice crunch.

Pros:

It was fairly easy and definitely pretty.

Cons:

Because I tried to deviate a little it wasn’t as good and some got wasted.

Conclusion:

I would definitely try this again though and change up some of the ingredients. Maybe also change my tasters to adults instead of finicky little ones.
