After the sunshine yesterday it felt like summer was around the corner and I had a craving for a plate of tropical fruit. Unfortunately this morning is a different story so I needed a bit of warmth alongside the fruit. I love peanut sauce, you could easily double the portion of sauce here but I was trying to limit the peanut butter damage – I’ve been eating rather a lot of it lately. This sauce also makes the perfect partner with banana – but again I’ve been eating rather a lot of these lately too.
Tropical fruit with hot peanut sauce (serves one)
- 1 kiwi – cut into cubes
- 1/2 a mango – cut into cubes (and a few slices if you want to make your bowl look pretty)
- A handful of blueberries
- 1 tablespoon desiccated coconut
- 1 tablespoon peanut butter
- 1 tablespoon maple syrup
- 2 tablespoons coconut milk
Put the fruit into a bowl and sprinkle the desiccated coconut on top.
To make the sauce – put the peanut butter, maple syrup and milk into a small pan and heat gently until it blends into a thin sauce (around 2 minutes). Pour over and enjoy.
