You can make a Dessert in 5 Minutes out of Fruit; that is FUN!” is what I said to a client going to a picnic and fretting about what to bring.

Her response: Yeah, Right.

So to prove my point, I timed how long it took to make this SIMPLE, FUN, Nutritious Fruit dessert and sent her the video.

3 1/2 minutes is all it took to make a Cantaloupe Basket, Watermelon Bowl, and a Fruit Plate. 5 minutes included clean up! 😁

She gave it a go and emailed me that Monday to let me know the reaction to her FUN Fruit dessert was surprisingly so GREAT that it will be her go-to from now on:

mo, everyone, especially the kids wanted their own ‘fruit bowl’ they kept refilling it. It was a hit!
