Prep time: 10 minutes
Serves: 4 – 6 people
Fruit Salad Ingredients:
o 4 super juicy ripe mangoes
o 1 cup of blackberries
o 1/4 teaspoon poppy seeds
o 1 teaspoon local honey or maple syrup
o 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice

Wash the blackberries and set aside on a tea towel to dry.
Slice and peel the mangoes into long sections.
In a small mixing bowl whisk together the poppy seeds, honey, lemon juice + lemon zest. Combine well and pour over top the mangoes. With your hands toss to coat. Last add in the blackberries, these are fragile, toss lightly.
Coconut Cream Ingredients:
o 1 cup full fat coconut cream*, I use this Trader Joe’s brand
o 1 earl grey tea bag
o 1/4 cup filtered water
o 1 tablespoon local honey or maple syrup
o 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
- Bring 1/4 cup of water to a boil, then steep your tea for 5 minutes. Remove the tea bag and pop the tea into the refrigerator to chill it for 5 minutes.
- In a mixing bowl combine the chilled tea, honey and vanilla, whisk it vigorously by hand or with a electric hand mixer. Then add in your coconut cream and blend until smooth.
- Serve fruit with extra lemon zest and a beautiful dollop of this creamy goodness.
*To extract your rich and thick coconut cream from the can, it is best to refrigerate it overnight or at least for a few hours.
