Why complicate Christmas desserts with long and detailed recipes when we're blessed in Australia with so many beautiful fruits at this time of year! A simple, broth-infused, fruit salad with some coconut yoghurt is all you need after a big Christmas feast or BBQ.

  • 1 cup strawberries, halved
  • 1 punnet blueberries
  • 2 small nectarines, stones removed & quartered
  • 2 small peaches, stones removed & quartered
  • 1 mango, cubed
  • 4 small apricots, stones removed & quartered
  • Lime zest to garnish



  1. Place dressing ingredients into a small bowl and whisk to combine well
  2. Add all fruit to a large bowl then pour in dressing. Toss gently to coat.
  3. Garnish with lime zest & serve with coconut yoghurt or ice cream.

NOTE/TIPS: The small amount of salt from the broth plus citric acid from the lime helps to preserve the fruits so they don’t brown as quickly. This means left-overs (if any!) will last a bit longer -especially in these warm summer months!
