Cheeky Summer Fruit Salad by claremanson Cheeky Summer Fruit Salad by claremanson
Strawberries, orange, apple and banana drizzled with lemon juice and honey then served with a cheeky chocolate (made with my chocolate molds) in a an orange cup.

Fresh from my local market. You can't really get much fresher than that! (unless you are fortunate enough to have your own or access to a fruit garden!) So refreshing and the honey gave it a lovely extra burst of flavour.

I also have to say, this was such a joy to photograph! I love food photography so much but rarely get to photograph food with such vibrancy so it was a lovely change.

My best friend is on a diet and coming to my house after his gym session today. My fiance is also on a diet so i thought i should make them something a little bit healthy for a change. Of course me being me, i couldn't help resist having some sort of chocolate in this dessert.

TIP: When making a fruit salad or generally using sliced fruit, add a drizzle of lemon juice over the top to reduce discoloration, especially if like me, you like to make things in advance.

This looks like something my bf would like (he doesn't like chocolate as much as me, but he loves fruit). I think I'll make this for him <3

Lovely picture. Thanks for giving me the idea!
