Superbowl Snack...Fruit Salad

We are going to Troy and Allyson's to watch the game in a little bit, and when I asked her what to bring, she said maybe something healthy...even though I think we both knew that there aren't many "football" foods that are healthy:)

So, I decided on a fruit salad. I really am doing a lot better job in the last week of getting a lot of fruits and veggies into my day. One more way to get some more fruit in...

This recipe kind of comes from allrecipes-- here is the link, and I posted my own version here. This would also be a good thing for us to keep in our fridge to snack on throughout the week when we get sick of the raw form of the fruits and veggies..might have to go ahead and make the whole batch after all!

And frankly, I don't care who wins the game. I am a little sad that this is the end of football season though! Soccer season, coming right up!!
**I had this all week for snack and lunch and it was good all week, no brown spots! Tasted better every day!

2 t all-purpose flour
3 oz pineapple juice
2 t sugar
1/8 c orange juice concentrate
1 T lemon juice
2 t honey
1/2 container (regular sized container) cool whip (fat free or light works), thawed
assorted fresh fruit

Combine flour, pineapple juice, sugar, oj, lemon juice, and honey in saucepan and cook until bubbling for two minutes to thicken up sauce. Cool in refrigerator.

Combine sauce with thawed cool whip. Stir to combine.

Pour sauce over fresh fruit and chill for flavors to blend.

I used halved green and red grapes, blueberries, orange chunks, green apples, and red apples. It tasted really good right when I mixed it, which means that I'll like it even more after it's all chilled together!
