Cook’s tips

  • You can use pineapple juice instead of orange juice.
  • Try using different fruit – raspberries, blueberries and cherries are lovely and good value  in season. Ripe melon and pear also work well.
  • You can eat your fruit salad as a snack, dessert or with cereal at breakfast.
  • Blend any unused fruit with plain low-fat yoghurt for a delicious smoothie.
