  • 1 small fresh pineapple
  • 2 cups fresh strawberries washed and dried, about 1 ½ lbs chopped strawberries
  • 1 cup red grapes washed and dried
  • 2 kiwis
  • 2 fresh Mandarin oranges peeled
  • 1 cup fresh blueberries washed and dried
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup , sub with agave, honey (if not vegan) or preferred sticky liquid sweetener. Optional for extra sweetness
  • Juice from 1 small lime
  • 1 tsp fresh lime zest
  • Finely chopped fresh mint for garnish


  1. Place the pineapple on a cutting board on its side and use a sharp knife to slice off the spiky top and bottom of the pineapple to create a flat base.Set the pineapple on the flat side down. Work your way around the pineapple, cutting off the rind in strips. Use your knife to remove the "eyes," being careful to remove as little of the fruit as possible. Trim off any remaining eyes or bits of rind. Cut the pineapple straight down into four quarters around the core and discard the core.Slice the pineapple into smaller cubes. Add to a large bowl.

  2. Prepare the strawberries, kiwi and grapes: by removing the tops of the strawberries and chop into thirds or quarters, lengthwise.

    Peel the kiwi and cut into chunks and add to the bowl.

    Cut the grapes into halves.

    Peel the Mandarin oranges and separate. Add to the bowl, placing each fruit side-by-side. Add the blueberries.

  3. In a small bowl, whisk together the maple syrup, lime juice and lime zest. Pour over the fruit and gently toss to coat. Chill in the fridge for at least 30 minutes (or up to 4 hours) before serving. Garnish with a tiny pinch of chopped mint and serve.
