Bionicos (Mexican Fruit Cups)

One of my favorite desserts, Bionicos (Mexican Fruit Cups), is popular street food, made from seasonal fruit and add-ins; easy to make, and whips up in a few minutes. 

Bionicos ( Mexican Fruit Cups)

Bionico is a popular Mexican dessert that originated in the city of Guadalajara in Jalisco, Mexico, in the early 1990s. It is essentially a fruit salad consisting of a variety of fruits chopped up into small cubes, drenched with crema, and topped off with granola, shredded coconut, raisins, and sometimes honey.

I highly recommend using your favorite fruits. If they are not in season, just use seasonal fruits. Be a little adventurous and try as many fruit combinations as possible. Make it a family activity, get your kids involved, and have a great time creating a tasty dessert.
