However, there is an easy and tasty way to recycle leftover fruit salad, thanks to the marvellous inventions of icy pole molds and food processors.
Leftover fruit salad Yoghurt (optional) Honey (optional)
1. Using a food processor or stick processor, process the fruit salad until it is well integrated. It should be nice and thick as a result of this. If you're aesthetically inclined, you'll also notice that you have a really nice integration of the colours in the fruit salad.
Kids will get a real kick out of eating something they made themselves, and you can vary the recipe in lots of ways. For example, if you use yoghurt you can experiment with fruit flavoured yoghurts, or venture into non-fruit flavours like vanilla, lemon-cheesecake and so on.
Obviously the different fruit combinations in the fruit salad will also make a difference. Berries are a fantastic addition to any fruit salad, and they result in brightly coloured icy poles. Melons will give a more subtle flavour.
Whatever you use, you will have a really yummy treat for those hot days coming our way. It's also an easy way to keep the kids occupied for a little while, making something they will love to eat and teaching them how to creatively avoid wasting food.
