Seasonal Fresh Fruit on Banana Leaves (serves 1)

It's always nice to have seasonal fresh fruits for a snack, dessert or light meal.  You an use any fresh fruit you have available.  I used banana leaves as a serving plate; both for presentation and for a quick clean up after the meal!

Ingredients:


1 avocado, dice or slice
1 lilikoi fruit, cut in half
1 ice cream banana, keep whole
1/8 of a pineapple, cut in bite size pieces
1 star fruit, slice and remove seeds
2 bougainvillea bracts and flowers, garnish
Banana leaves, serving plate

Method:

Arrange the fruit on banana leaves and garnish with bougainvillea bracts and flowers.

*Harvest the largest banana leaves that have not been torn by the wind.  Make sure to clean the banana leaves well by wiping them gently with a wet wash cloth or towel.  
*The banana leaves are flexible and waterproof.  They have many useful functions; in serving food, decoration, wrapping food, making bowls or cups to hold food, and serving mat or plate to name a few.
