Winter fruit salad with Sea Buckthorn (or blueberries)

Winter doesn't necessarily have to be depressing with an energizing fruit salad, made with a honey, cinnamon and sea buckthorn (or blueberry) juice "drizzle"

Ingredients (4 servings):

-4 large clementines (or 2 tangerines)
-4 organic apples (or easily pears)
-4 organic bananas

-4 tbsp fresh sea buckthorn (or blueberries),
-4 tbsp organic walnuts (preferably
soaked and dried for better digestion)
-4 tbsp fresh sea buckthorn (or blueberry) juice pressed from fresh berries (instructions below)

-1 tbsp fresh ginger root juice

-4 tbsp honey (best of the best is Manuka, but its $25 a jar, AVOID CHEAP HONEY, read about fake honey here)

-Ground Ceylon Cinnamon (as opposed to more commom Cassia Cinnamon) to taste, read more about selecting real cinnamon .

Method

1. Prepare the fruits: Peel the clementines, break into segments and remove the white pith and seeds; cut the applies into thin segments, slice the bananas, and quarter the whole walnuts. Tip: you may want to have your clementines and applies chilled and bananas at room temperature – this would give a nice play of textures on your tongue – crunchy and soft, warm and cold.

2. Make the sauce: Squeeze juice of the sea buckthorn (or blueberries) by placing them in a sieve and pressing them with a wooden spoon so the juice comes in a bowl you will place under the sieve. Grate the ginger root and squeeze juice out of it with your hand. Mix in the the two juices, add honey and cinnamon and mix well. Tip: if the honey is not liquid enough you can still mix it in with more patience and effort – the acid in the juices will eventually dissolve honey.

3. Make the salad to serve: Mix the fruits with the sauce, cover, shake well for a few seconds – and enjoy! A glass of Pino Gris to go with this salad would not be a sin: the summer is over only according to the calendar.

The Healthy Chef's Corner

"The Healthy Chef's"  Deliciously Healthy  Food Tidbits:

The best way to find fresh sea buckthorn is to find it at a farmer's market. As it becomes more popular it will be easier to find, which is good news due to the amazing benefits of Sea Buckthorn superfood. I get my daily intake from a great company called Genesis Today.

Ceylon Cinnamon cinnamon is higher quality than the lower quality and more common cassia cinnamon. Ceylon  Cinnamon is lighter in color and has more pleasant aroma. If is available in places like Whole Foods that have quality spices, just learn to look for the Ceylon Cinnamon brands, such as Frontier Herbs Ceylon Connamon.

Quality raw honey and quality cinnamon, when combined, provide exponentional health benefits as opposed to when used separately.

EAT HEALTHY, BUT ENJOY WHAT YOU EAT!!!!!.
