Mediterranean food has long been praised for being packed with healthy nutrients, easy to digest, and for those who would rather not spend too much time in the kitchen, quick and easy to prepare.

Mediterranean cuisine consists of fresh foods that are cultivated in the region and it is based on fruits, vegetables, nuts, dairy products and fish.

Eating a balanced, Mediterranean-based diet reduces the risk of heart disease, diabetes and various cardiovascular problems associated with foods packed with fat and carbohydrates.

So, next time you go grocery shopping, make sure you stock up on grapes, figs, apricots and citrus fruits so you can prepare our super-healthy Mediterranean Master Fruit Mix for the whole family.

The Mediterranean Master Fruit Mix takes 15-20 minutes to prepare and serves up to 10 people.

Ingredients

  • 4 large cups of fresh or canned fruit, including apples, oranges, bananas, pineapple and the fruits mentioned above
  • 1 cup of assorted nuts, including hazelnuts, almonds and pistachios
  • 1 small package of vanilla pudding or yogurt
  • 1-2 cups of non-fat milk, if you prefer it over pudding or yogurt

Step By Step Preparation

  1. If you have fresh fruit, rinse it well and chop into bite-size chunks. If you have canned fruit open the can and drain the fruit.
  2. Mix the fruit with pudding, yogurt or milk, add the nuts and refrigerate for 5-10 minutes.
  3. Serve as soon as it is ready and refrigerate the leftovers.

Bon appétit!
