Tropical Paradise Fruit Platter
"Don't play with your food" they said.
"You'll get in trouble" they said.
Remember when we were little and our parents/grandparents always told us not to play with our food? Yeah, I never listened and I still do it to this day ;)
No but seriously, so many of my friends say that I play with my food! And I'm just like wellllll ya gotta make it fun! I love creating fruit platters, they're definitely one of my favorite things to make! There's not much work required - no blending, baking, freezing, toasting - none of that! Ain't nobody got time for that! Really, the only thing ya gotta do is chop fruit (maybe) but for some things like berries you don't even need to do that.
So yeah, as you can tell I like to "play" with my food as so many people would like to say. But more so, I enjoy getting to be creative and turn a regular old meal into artwork!
I love summer fruits and everything that comes along with them - the bold colors and flavors, the juiciness, getting to pick them myself from local farmer's markets - GAH, just everything!
What you'll need:
I made this platter using all of the beautiful fruits listed above. I always get asked "whats that?" when I eat passionfruit around my friends. Or when I post a picture on Instagram people will comment and ask, "Whats the round thing with the yellow stuff in the middle?!" That my friends, is passionfruit. I love, love, LOVE passionfruit with a passion (pun intended). It's full of flavor and just SCREAMS the word SUMMER! One of my favorite combinations is eating passionfruit with watermelon. Just cut a watermelon in half, scoop out some passionfruit from it's pit and add it on top of the watermelon, and bam - you're done. Get yourself a spoon and just scoop your concoction right outta'that watermelon and eat it like it's cereal. Seriously, I promise you'll fall in love.
