If every meal I ate for the rest of my life was a sweet one, I would die a happy girl.

That is, until I had a desperate craving for salt, in which I would tear into a bag of salt and vinegar chips quicker than Mr. How Sweet devours a 10oz steak.

I was lucky enough that Mr. How Sweet didn’t eat us out of house and home this weekend. For once. Probably because we weren’t home.

That allowed me to whip up this fantastic bruschetta.

I love mini snacks.

They allow you to curb cravings with just a few bites, or eat triple the amount you normally would because they are so tiny.

 I roll with the latter.

It’s all about balance, people.

I sliced and toasted a whole grain baguette that I bought at Whole Foods. It was difficult not to dig into this baby sans fruit. It was doughy and delicious.

Topped with creamy mascarpone and fresh, crisp fruit, this is a perfect Summer dessert, snack or appetizer.

Not to mention, it is colorful and full of flavor.

My simple mind enjoys eating items that are brightly colored.

Fresh Fruit Bruschetta

1 whole wheat baguette

1 cup mascarpone cheese

1 tablespoon honey

1/3 cup chopped strawberries

1/4 cup blueberries

1/4 cup chopped mango

1 kiwi, chopped

Preheat oven to 400.

Slice baguette and lay on a wire rack on top of a baking sheet. Toast until golden brown.

In a bowl, combine mascarpone and honey. Spread a tablespoon on each baguette. Top with an assortment of chopped fruit.

Warm, toasty bread, creamy cheese and sugar?

Don’t mind if I do.

    these look delish!

    and who says eating an entire bag of oreos followed by a bag of salt n vinegar chips to counteract the sugar overload is wrong?! not me, that’s for sure :)

    I bought a bunch of fruit today to make some fruit salsa for cinnamon sugar chips… But now I’m thinking I might have to rethink it. Is it wrong to want this for lunch tomorrow?

    last sentence…classic

    the bananas in the softserve, no cannot taste them per se. and they don’t overpower or compete with the mint. just make sure if you make them that they are super ripe before you freeze them so they are at their sweetest and you wont have any probs :)

    I think I just found food bliss. If only I could buy a baguette without eating half of it on the way home. We can all set goals, right?
    Amazing girl!

    I made this for a cocktail party and it was a hit! Since kiwis & mangoes aren’t available this time of year, I did strawberries & blueberries for half of the baguette slices and thinly sliced pears & apples for the other half. Thanks for this fun, easy, and healthy appetizer!
