Pina Colada Fruit Salad

I know, you’re probably wondering if you’re at the right blog today.

What’s up with the fruit, right? I mean, where are the super fattening cookies or pies or Mexican food?

Don’t worry, I won’t stay on this healthy kick for long.

Actually, today might be it and then I’ll be over it.

I try to eat healthy, but I’m also of the opinion that adding fruit to baked goods automatically makes things healthy.

Please say I’m not the only one.

I know most normal people can eat “fruit salads” by just mixing a bunch of fruits together and calling it good.  I don’t know–I try that, I really do–but after about three bites, I’m pretty much over it.  And then instead of eating more fruit, I’m shoving pancakes or breakfast casserole in my face because I’m still hungry and the “fruit salad” is totally not filling the void.

But this fresh-fruit dish is a little different.

Mostly because it’s doused in a can of frozen pina colada mix.  Quick, easy, and just enough extra flavor for me to forget I’m eating a big bowl of fruit.

And, if the Tall Boy didn’t have such an aversion to coconut, I would totally add shredded coconut to this.  Is he weird, or what?

    I love the Amy’s idea of throwing on a scoop of vanilla ice cream. Sherbet sounds good, too!! I agree–eating healthy can be a challenge sometimes because I just have this problem where I’m NEVER full and I try SO HARD to eat slow and eat “filling” healthy foods but they just don’t do it for me. So I can be really really good but then take out my problems with a bag of tortilla chips and ruin it in a second. This is such a fun way to jazz up a typical so-so fruit salad–I love the idea!! And is that Doodle with you in your spoon!? 😉

      HA! Yep, that’s him. He likes to “help” with the photo staging (and believe me, I could use all the help I can get). I’m the worst healthy-eater ever, but at least this way I’m getting some fruit. =) Why am I hungry ALL.THE.TIME????

Hello There!

Interestingly enough, I didn’t grow up with an interest in cooking.  In fact, I informed my mother on multiple occasions that I was not getting an advanced education so I could spend my evenings preparing meals.
