Play With Your Fruit

In this installment of Dining Delights, we bring you three clever ways to incorporate this spring's top dining hall fruits into tasty concoctions.

Banana Bread Pudding


1 slice whole wheat bread or other bread of your choosing

2 tablespoons peanut butter

1 banana, sliced

1 tablespoon brown sugar

1 tablespoon raisins

½ cup milk

Crumble bread and place pieces in bowl. Top bread with peanut butter, then banana slices, brown sugar, and raisins. Pour milk into bowl and allow mixture to soak for about one minute. Microwave for 40 seconds or until sugar glaze appears on bananas.

Apple-Cheddar Quesadilla


2 slices cheddar cheese

2 slices American cheese

1 tortilla

2 small apples or 1 large apple, thinly sliced

Salt and pepper, to taste

Arrange cheese slices in a row on one half of tortilla. Place apple slices on top of cheese slices, leaving some room in the middle for folding. Fold tortilla in half, then fold again into quarters. Place in panini press for approximately two minutes or until tortilla is golden brown and cheese has melted. Cut in half and garnish with salt and pepper.

Orange Julius


½ cup vanilla frozen yogurt

⅓ cup orange juice

5 orange slices

1 tablespoon honey

¼ cup whipped cream

Put frozen yogurt in a glass, then add orange juice. Mix well. Squeeze juice from orange slices into cup, or cut slices into small pieces and stir into mixture. Add honey and garnish with whipped cream.
