Recipe alert!

We were the recipients of a lovely surprise gift yesterday. The Baby spent the day with his girlfriend (I know! If I could stop him growing up, I would) and he arrived home with an enormous shopping bag full of fresh fruit. His girl's mum got a heap of freebies from her workplace, and it was more than they could use, so she kindly sent some home with him.

There was a pineapple, bunches of grapes, a couple of mangoes, a punnet of strawberries, four avocados and a pile of nectarines and peaches. Yummo!

Most of it will keep in the fridge for a few days, but the stone fruit was quite ripe and needed to be used up fairly quickly.

I recalled the delicious brekkie Liz had served me when I stayed with her in Brisbane: fruit compote with yoghurt and muesli. I've been meaning to have a go at a similar recipe myself ever since, but you know...busy life and all that. But this morning, I had the time and had all the ingredients, so I was inspired to have a go at my own version of fresh fruit compote.

It turned out great and was just what I needed to restore my energy after an early morning smash-and-grab shopping trip to Coles. The recipe's up over at Fitbodies Food - go check it out!
