When my internet connection finally returned, I immediately went back to finish the recipe I had been working on. Well...imagine my surprise when I saw that none of what I had written had been saved, nor had the pics. Noooooo! That really is one of the worst things that could happen to a food blogger. I was devastated.
Fast forward to today...
I was working on the my recipe index and was looking through my Picassa Web Albums for pics. Now imagine what a surprise it was to find the pics of the Summer Fruit recipe I had wanted to post months ago! Woo-hoo! I am so happy and excited that I just have to share the recipe before I lose the pics again.
The actual name of this fruit dish is Bionico, but here in town we also call it a Preparado. It's a very popular breakfast at the town's market. It's a fruit salad make with a mixture of your favorite fruits, Mexican crema sweetened with honey and ground cinnamon and topped with your choice of granola, strawberry jam and/or shredded coconut.
If you want a lighter, healthier Bionico, substitute plain yogurt for the Mexican crema. This is a great fruit salad to make all year long, using whatever fruits are in season at the moment.
Bionicos (Mexican Fruit Salad)
- 2 cups Mexican crema or plain yogurt
- 1/4 cup honey
- 1/4 cup sugar
- 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- Granola (for garnish)
- Strawberry jam (for garnish)
- Shredded coconut (for garnish)
In a medium bowl, mix together the Mexican crema, honey, sugar and ground cinnamon until the sugar dissolves; refrigerate until ready to use.
