Freaky Fruits®

By Nancy Eisman

October is Freaky Fruit® month, highlighting the most exotic and intriguing of Mother Nature’s sweet bounty. A bit creepy to look at, but surprisingly delectable to eat, Freaky Fruit® is a must for the entire month leading up to a frightening finale on Halloween.

Eaten out-of-hand, or added to desserts, baked goods, and other recipes, pomegranates, passion fruit, cherimoya, blood oranges, Buddha’s hand, dragon fruit, finger limes, cactus pears, kiwano melon, and rambutan have the wow-factor to make any dish truly spooktacular.

For a boo-eautiful breakfast bowl, blend up a creamy pudding with Cherimoya (aka custard apple), plant-based yogurt, and avocado, and top with your choice of Freaky Fruit®. Add some omega 3-rich chia seeds and crumbled Clean Snax® for texture and crunch. This Freaky Fruit® scary-moya pudding bowl is the perfect way to start any October day.
