Best Way to Start the Day…. Magical Fruit Bowl September 6, 2010

Holy Panini Dragon Fruit!!!! Way to start the day! It was such a beautiful Maui morning here and we have our friend Michelle visiting from San Diego… so we are immersing her into Mother Maui. We started early with a green smoothie and a beach walk on Baldwin Beach, took a nice dunk in the salt water then enjoyed some powerful Power Yoga outside on our lanai, followed by this delectable tropical treat!!!! It was an amazing morning. She absolutely loved it! And Im still freeking over this magical fruit bowl.

This is by far the BEST tropical fruit bowl I have ever tasted! Chris made it for us with LOTS o’ LOVE as you can tell . This tropical treat had SO much succulent yumminess, I couldn’t resist a photo and a post! Isn’t it just GORGEOUS!!!!! I am sooo thankful and grateful. I will list the recipe for you it is worth tracking down the ingredients. Even if you have to come and get them. 🙂

We have been aiming to eat mostly local foods and we did pretty good on this dish. Its harder than you realize but we are pretty lucky living here on this bountiful tropical island. A lot came from our property or from our friends properties.

This particular bowl included ~

  • Panini lime lilikoi base (blended and strained)
  • banana
  • papaya
  • a crazy Maui apple/pear thingy??? dont know name?
  • dragon fruit (the hot pink stuff)
  • fresh sliced coconut and fresh mint!!!!

It was THE perfect sweet hydration after that power yoga.

Here is Michelle and me at the beach~

Heres wishing you a beauteous day, too.

Lots of love,

Chris & Sara & Michelle

This is a most amazing fruit that we have been experiencing. I feel sooo lucky. However the season is almost over, so we are savoring our last deliveries of the precious paninins while we can. If you are in Az you can probably find these delectable fruits growing every where on the Prickly Pear Cactus. Its worth the work… trust me!  So yummmmy!

Check out this video on Paninis- We also share a couple of delicious recipes if you can get your hands on some!
