FRUIT
WATERMELON – super sweet and high quality
when bought singularly than the others, they taste great however aren’t as pretty.
STRAWBERRIES – We have both QLD and LOCAL strawberries this week. The LOCAL are a bit cheaper BLACK SAPOTE – medium  pieces available, they are firm and will ripen for end of weeks use, Great in smoothies.
HONEY DEW MELON – A lovely addition to your fruit salad.
APPLES – Supply is dwindling, as is the range of varieties. FUJIS are eating superbly, GOLDEN DELICIOUS are eating ok, and are looking clean. GRANNY SMITHS are eating just OK, they are not looking brilliant, as they are suffering from what is called a SPRING BLUSH. That is when the warmer spring air discolours the skin. Please note this is not bruising, just a function of WAX free apples at this time of year! We may see fits n spurts of PINK LADIES later in the week.
BLUEBERRIES – These are eating brilliantly. Yes they are up in price, but Wow!

THIS WEEKS RECIPE
Vegan Strawberry-Vanilla Chia Seed Pudding Recipe
Ingredients:
2 tablespoons chia seeds (do not pre-soak)
1/2 cup ALMOND MILK (preferably homemade, SIMPLE RECIPE - soak almonds over night, drain them, then blend in fresh water and then squeeze through a nut milk bag)
2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
6 medium strawberries
Directions:
In a blender, blend the strawberries, almond milk and vanilla together. Pour over the chia seeds and stir. Let sit for about 2 minutes and stir again. Cover the pudding and let it sit for another 20 minutes. Once the pudding is thick, stir once more and serve immediately.
You can chill prior to serving, however I feel it is best to be sure your strawberries and almond milk are chilled in the refrigerator before you make this recipe

Have a great week
