Rise 'n Shine

Too busy this month for a proper breakfast? Nonsense! This healthy recipe is fast and tasty. If you have your fruit already prepared in refrigerated containers, you can have breakfast made in the time it takes to make your coffee. So treat yourself to a proper, speedy breakfast this month. With all there is to do out there, you'll need it!

While I have included kiwi, banana, and grapes in this rendition, there's no end to the possibilities out there. Use what's in season and on hand. Some suggestions include: mandarin oranges, pineapple, peaches, pears, strawberries, cherries, and apples.
