So I am actually counting down the days to Easter now. I mentioned before that I've given up eating & baking cakes for lent but I've also given up chocolate - so as you can imagine life is pretty hard at the moment!
I've been trying to satisfy my sweet tooth with non-chocolate & cake things and the best alternative I've found so far is maple syrup! I love it, it's so sweet and all natural - like natures caramel or something. For a while I started getting up early to make pancakes for breakfast, just so I could smother them with syrup and get a hit of sweetness. But after a while I thought that was just too much bother when all I wanted was the actual syrup. So, instead of going straight to the bottle I thought maybe I'd put some on a bit of fruit. And that is how I came up with this - my new favourite dessert! And because it's a dessert it's also technically a Monday meal!
There really isn't much of a method involved, just pick some nice fruit; I think strawberries, blueberries and a Pink Lady apple are the perfect combination. (Make sure you keep the Pink Ladies in the fridge because they are way nicer when they are cold)
Chop them up and drizzle with maple syrup!
Delicious! It's perfect for the current lovely weather we're having and it's full of goodness. This will keep me going for the next two weeks!
