My New Roots

Chakra Fruit Salad Recipe

Sarah Britton

The healing-inspired Chakra Fruit Salad with Enlightened Tahini Sauce was part of Sarah Britton’s project to use all of the colors of the chakras, energy centers in the body, for her Reiki class. My New Roots lists the name of each color and chakra next to the ingredient. We need to brush up on our chakra knowledge, but a salad with seven different fruits…err chakras…sounds delicious!

With Food + Love

Blackberry and Mango Fruit Salad Recipe

With Food + Love

The Blackberry + Mango Lemon Poppy Seed Fruit Salad with Earl Grey Whipped Coconut Cream from With Food + Love is a tropical treat bursting with unique flavors. The longer this one is left to sit and marinate, the better it will taste.

The Fig Tree

Mojito Fruit Salad Recipe

The lime and mint in this Mojito Fruit Salad from The Fig Tree give just the right amount of kick to this otherwise sweet salad. Just like the tasty summer drink after which it’s named, we think this salad will be perfect poolside.

The Almond Ice Milk with Strawberry and Rhubard Salad from Apt. 2B Baking Co. varies from a traditional fruit salad, but the pairing of tart fruits with iced almond milk is perfect for cooling off from the summer heat.

Desserts for Breakfast’s Thyme for Watermelon + Strawberries fruit salad is so light and refreshing that it closely resembles another summer favorite—shaved ice. Though, the sweet and tangy flavors here will convince you to skip the sugary doppelganger altogether this year.

The First Mess
