I have a really bad relationship with McDonald’s.
I’m that kind of person that if forced to eat there, orders the side salad and the fruit bag. Then, with the almost empty tray, looking miserable, prays to be out of there as soon as possible.
Yeah, that would be me, and I really look miserable in these rare occasions.
Thinking about this not so funny situations, made me wonder, “What if Happy Meal was actually healthy? What if kids would really be happy to eat plain fruits without complaining?”
I had loads of fruits at home, so I decided to have some fun and play with the ingredients a little more than I normally do.
I wanted a cool but tasty burger, and french fries. Of course fries ( I mean, what kind of Happy Meal is, if there are no fries??).
I mixed some mango with coconut, agave and mint for a fresh and sweet burger. I added some kiwis and pineapple to give a little tartness, and I made the fries out of a golden apple. Come on, I deserve to be called Genius for at least once in my life, and probably this is the time!!
I hope you really like it and will try this at home, will surely be a WOW dessert, yet so easy and simple to make!
Make yourself happy, and enjoy your Happy Meal!
