fruitsalsa An easy recipe that puts a sweet and healthy spin on chips and salsa. The perfect snack for a hot day!

• Bag of frozen mixed fruit
• Honey, coconut or grated ginger
• Whole wheat pita chips or whole wheat tortillas
• Cinnamon

Microwave bag of frozen fruit for two minutes at 30% power. The fruit will still be a little frozen, which is better for chopping. Chop the fruit up into fine pieces. For extra flavor, mix in a drizzle of honey, coconut, or grated ginger. You can also use orange juice, lemon juice or zest, agave nectar, granulated sugar, a little corn starch to thicken it up, fruit preserves (like jam), vanilla extract, or yogurt.

Then dip in with whole wheat pita chips, sliced, and baked with cinnamon on top.
