Quick Recipe

Just found this in my Shape magazine and thought I'd share.

It's a no-cook recipe which on hot days like this are lifesavers for me! Hope you enjoy it.

You can use fruit or vegetables. One light supper favorite: a creamy peach
soup. Blend 2 cups fruit chunks, 1 cup orange juice, and 1 cup lowfat plain
yogurt. (This serves two; double the ingredients for four.) Drizzle on a little
honey. For a filling, low-calorie twist, thicken it with vegetables, not bread
(as many traditional recipes do).


I also found a great fruit salad recipe on their site. On plan and yummy!

Ingredients
1 can (20 oz.) Pineapple Chunks
1 can (11 or 15 oz.) Mandarin Oranges, drained 1 large Banana, sliced
1 Kiwi fruit, peeled, halved and sliced
1 cup quartered Fresh or Frozen Strawberries
1/4 teaspoon grated lime peel (optional)
2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
1 tablespoon honey

Directions
Drain pineapple; reserve 1/4 cup juice.
Combine pineapple chunks, mandarin oranges, banana, kiwi fruit and
strawberries in large serving bowl.
Stir together reserved pineapple juice, lime peel, lime juice and honey in small bowl.
Pour over salad; toss to coat.
