This recipe contains the following types of ingredient: plants and fungi.


100 g
Tropical Wholefoods sun dried FAIRTRADE mango
150 g
FAIRTRADE Tropical Wholefoods sun-dried pineapple
Tropical Wholefoods sun dried star fruit
250 g
fresh raspberries
140 ml
FAIRTRADE orange juice
30 ml
kirsch or Grand Marnier
15 g
roasted coconut flakes


Soak the Sun Dried Mango, Pineapple and Star Fruit in warm water for 20 minutes.

Puree the reconstituted fruit in a food processor. Then add all the fresh fruit to this, taking care to mix gently so as to minimise damage of the fruits.

Combine together the orange (or other fruit) juice, Kirsch and spices and pour over the mixed fruit.

Cover and refridgerate for one to two hours, allowing the flavours to mingle. Sprinkle with the roasted coconut flakes.

To serve

Serve with fresh cream. Open a bottle of FAIRTRADE white wine as well (or a red). Relax. Put some nice music on the hi-fi. Be grateful for small mercies and the luxury of a western lifestyle.


You could perhaps try FAIRTRADE grapes as well if you can find them.
