6 Really Amazing Ways To Serve Fruit In A Fruit Bowl!

August 13, 2015 4 min read

Is there anything better than eating delicious food out of a delicious bowl? I love having very little to clean up at the end of a meal! But, most edible bowls are calorie bombs that leave you feeling crazy overstuffed at the end of the meal. I love to eat soup from a bread bowl but like I really need all that bread! Fortunately, we live in a world of creative food bloggers and they have come up with wickedly amazing ways to serve delightful dishes in a bowl made from some of our favourite summer fruit! Have a peek:

Chicken Melon Salad Bowl

chickenmelon
From The Reluctant Entertainer Makes 8 large salads. Regular toasted pecans taste yummy, too. You can make your own dressing or use a bottled dressing, but NO dressing is just as delicious!

INGREDIENTS:

  • 2 small watermelon
  • 2 small cantaloupe
  • 2 lime
  • 2 cups rotisserie chicken, chopped
  • 1/4 red onion, finely chopped
  • 1/2 cup Gorgonzola cheese
  • Spicy Pecans (I buy at Trader Joe’s)
  • 1/2 cup fresh basil, finely chopped (+8 leaves for garnish)
  • 1/2 cup Sweet Onion Poppyseed Dressing (or your favorite sweet dressing) - optional

DIRECTIONS:

  1. Cut the melons in half, removing all seeds. Using a melon baller or small cookie dough scoop, carve out balls of melon and set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, mix the melon, chicken, onion, cheese, basil, and nuts. Squeeze the fresh lime over the mixture.
  3. If using a light dressing, such as a sweet (poppyseed) dressing, lightly toss it around the ingredients.
  4. Fill the melon bowls with the chicken mixture, garnishing with fresh basil. Serve!

Watermelon Shooters

  • 12 watermelon shot glasses, see below
  • 1-1/2 ounces tequila
  • 1/2 ounce triple sec
  • 1 ounce sweet and sour mix
  • 1 small watermelon slice
  • 1/4 lime
  • Ice
Directions: 
  1. Cut watermelon off the rind and place in a martini shaker with lime. Muddle well. Add tequila, triple sec and sweet and sour mix. Shake with ice. Strain into a measuring cup and pour into watermelon shot glasses.
To make watermelon shot glasses, scoop out watermelon balls with a 1-1/2-inch ice cream scooper. Cut a small slice off the bottom. Use a melon baller to scoop the insides out from the top, being careful not to puncture.

INGREDIENTS

Vegan Cheesecake Stuffed Strawberries

chocolate_chip_cheesecake_stuffed_strawberries_recipe

From Oh My Veggies

ingredients

  • 3/4 c. raw whole cashews, soaked in water overnight (8 hours)
  • 2-3 tbsp. water
  • 1 tbsp. coconut oil
  • 2 tbsp. lemon juice
  • 1 tbsp. Grade B maple syrup (or raw agave nectar if you're following a strict raw diet)
  • 1 tbsp. cacao nibs or chopped dark chocolate
  • 1 lb. strawberries, hulled
  • 1 tbsp. ground flaxseed
  • 1 tsp. ground cinnamon

instructions

  1. Combine cashews, 2 tablespoons of water, coconut oil, lemon juice, and maple syrup in blender or food processor. Blend until smooth, scraping sides of blender if necessary. If mixture is too thick or the blade of the blender gets stuck, add an additional tablespoon of water. Fold in cacao nibs or chocolate chips. Place mixture in bowl, cover, and refrigerate until firm, 2-3 hours.
  2. Combine flaxseed and cinnamon in a small bowl. Use a spoon to fill each strawberry with cheesecake. (If you want to serve the strawberries upright on a platter, slice off the tips of each strawberry; you can fill them with a little more cheesecake if you're standing them up.) Sprinkle tops with flaxseed mixture and serve.

Shipping & Delivery

Due to COVID-19, shipping systems the world over are experiencing abnormal delays. There is an enormous demand on postal and delivery services as online shopping has skyrocketed, due to store closures and stay-at-home mandates. This is an unprecedented situation, and we are working around the clock to fulfill your orders as quickly as possible. To be clear, we are filling orders in 2-3 days, and we are shipping immediately after that. Once shipped, our shipping partner, UPS, will get your order out to you as quickly as possible. Thanks for your support and understanding.

Are you in Canada? Specifically, are you outside of a metropolitan centre? We need to alert you to a disruption in shipping due to COVID-19. Our preferred shipping provider, UPS, has informed us that they cannot guarantee express shipping for many locations. We have also seen that packages delivered to Toronto, Ottawa, Vancouver, etc, are not waylaid, but packages delivered to areas just outside of these cities are being held in transit for days or even weeks. UPS has discontinued their guarantee of 1-4 day delivery, which you can read more about here. Therefore, we can guarantee early fulfillment but not early delivery of our goods from our warehouse to your door at this time.

 

We want you to start your fitness journey with us as quickly as possible, that’s why we send every package to the USA & Canada via expedited or standard shipping with our partners at UPS. Once your order is received and processed, it typically takes 2-4 days to get to you once it leaves our warehouse. That’s our commitment and we stand by it.

We ship within Canada and the United States via UPS with Standard & Expedited shipping (whichever is faster)

For locations outside of the US and Canada, we ship using FedEx International (EUROPE and Other Nations), which is usually in transit for 7-10 business days, depending on location.

We ship all of our physical products with UPS, from our warehouse location in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. Delays caused due to custom withholds are not included in these estimated delivery times.

Returns & Exchanges

BodyRock Equipment

We offer a 30-day return policy, as long as: it is not more than 30 days past the date of delivery; and your item is in its original condition and packaging with the original order number. Refunds will be issued when the equipment is received back to the BodyRock warehouse, minus the original cost of shipping, and the customer is responsible for the costs of return shipping. To request a refund on physical product purchases, please contact us.

Digital Products

We cannot issue refunds on digital goods such as e-books or videos, as these are non-tangible goods that are irrevocable once the order is placed.

Clothing

All of the BodyRock clothing is made to order and so is final sale. If you have any questions about sizing prior to placing your order, please contact us.
