Fruit Salad with Cinnamon

This is a very easy fruit salad with diced apples and oranges, chopped nuts and cinnamon. You can use any fruit and nuts you desire but the combination we’ve used here goes particularly well with aromatic, good-for-you cinnamon! That’s right – cinnamon has been shown to have health benefits including improved glucose tolerance.

Have your Fruit Salad with Cinnamon for a snack or make it a side dish to any main meal. Lemon juice, a bit of honey, full-fat coconut milk, or dried fruit can also be added to taste. Feel free to use any kinds of apples that you desire.

  1. Even my husband loved this – I made it with pecans because I like them better then walnuts. But, a great idea and a great easy snack.

  2. I didn’t have an orange so I used an apple and a banana cut into bite size pieces, some chopped walnuts, some craisins, some raisins, and then the cinnamon. This was incredible!!! So unbelievably easy yet nutritious and delicious.

  3. This is the easiest thing to make, a basic fruit salad. Which you don’t even need a recipe for, just chuck some fruit in a bowl.

    1. – I’m assuming you mean that you’re looking at the meal plan and it says to have “fruit salad with cinnamon, chicken” for a snack? It just means that you should have some fruit salad and some of the chicken that we suggested you pre-cook as a snack today. Does that make sense?

    1. Jessica – In my opinion, any fruit is acceptable, unless you have a metabolic disorder (diabetes, pre-diabetes) and you just can’t handle high-glycemic fruits. In that case, stick to berries.

  4. Not bad at all. Thought this was a good snack! Interesting mix of flavors… I wouldn’t have thought to put cinnamon and oranges together.
