Fruit Salad with Strawberry Coulis

Hello Blog World,

This was my daughter’s first year of high school and with high school comes extra subjects, some she thinks are just awesome (science experiments, cooking) and some not so awesome (textiles GASP! How can she be my daughter?)

In one of her Home Economics classes they made a fruit salad with strawberry Coulis which she got top marks for. She was very excited and of course she had to make it at home so we could see how it’s made and enjoy a yummy fruit salad.

I find it so refreshing just to have fruit salad sometimes after a meal.  So thanks to St Peter Claver College Home Economics Teacher for the following recipe.

What you will need for the coulis

1 cup strawberries, fresh or frozen doesn’t matter
1/2 cup sugar
1 tablespoon lemon juice

How to make it

1. In a medium saucepan, combine the strawberries, sugar, and lemon juice. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Transfer to a blender.
2. Purée until smooth, strain, and set aside.

Serve atop of ice-cream (we used low fat ice-cream) and any fruit salad, we used strawberries, pineapple, banana’s, kiwi fruit, apples and passion fruit. I know very simple, but very yummy.

We didn't have proper sundae glasses so we improvised and and used wine glasses.  

Now I am off to buy a new bathing suit for my daughter as my fab sis in law is taking her to Wet N Wild on Friday, that means hubby and I can spend the whole day together before heading back to work in the New Year.

Until then Happy Crafting
