How To Make Fruit Salad With Fruit Juice

 adding fruit juice to diced fruits
Dear Diary,
 If you are used to enjoying fruit salad with yogurt or milk,
then, just try this out and see what you have been missing. You can use any fruit juice of your choice, I chose citrus burst because of the variety of oranges there, and because I didn't add much oranges to this salad

One thing you may not know about fruit salad is that so little gives so much!  For the fruits displayed here, I can make up to three times more the quantity of salad I made here. I used just about 1/3 of  each of the fruits you see here. Their halves were kept in the refrigerator waiting patiently for another time.

Because of the heat of this season, I used a chill pack of fruit juice to mix. We are just three at home at the moment, so, the left over is kept in the fridge for others.
It was fun enjoying this chill fruit salad on a very hot afternoon.

I enjoy fruits better in the mornings, so I guess tomorrow morning, fruit salad will be my yummy breakfast!
 fruits I picked  for my fruit salad, apples,oranges,pineapple,watermelon, pawpaw
Ingredients For My Simple Fruit Salad:

  • pawpaw

  • apples
  • oranges
  • water melon 
  • fruit juice

Steps To Making This Simple Fruit Salad:

  1. Wash and chop or dice fruits into tiny cubes
  2. Arrange them in layers in a fruit bowl or any available container. Reason is so that they are evenly distributed when you dish out.
  3. Serve in deep bowls
  4. Pour in chill fruit juice. The quantity depends on how much each person wants in their salad bowls.

    2. Bonario you dey here again all the way from linda ikeji's blog. You seem to be every where .na WA o

  2. Nice one ma. How do I prepare fresh fruit juice? Is it just by blending the diff fruits together or there's more to it?

    1. If you have a fruit juicer, use it, that's all.

    2. .....or blend the fruit, then sieve.

  3. Pls my problem with making fruit salad is d ORANGE. How r my suppose to dice it? R my suppose to peel d inner skin (not d green outer part). Or shld I just squeeze d water inside? Or should I just dice it like that with d inner skin, its a little bitter.

    1. You'll peel the outer part allround, then you can dice. The outer part isn't edible

    2. Hi Amaka, peel out both the green and white parts, cut in halves and remove the seeds before dicing.

  16. Nice fruit salad...or almost. Adding a natural juice would have made it totally nice. Why not blend dome of the orange and water melon, and sieve the juice back into the salad?
