Dietitian's tip: Made to look like a painter's palette, this dessert is festive looking with the star fruit. If you prefer, you can replace any of the fruits with other options, including apples, nectarines, grapes or apricots.
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon sugar
2 cups frozen strawberries, unsweetened (thawed)
1/2 cup powdered sugar
1 star fruit, sliced
1 peach, pitted and sliced
1 pear, pitted and sliced
1 plum, pitted and sliced
1 kiwi, peeled and sliced
Fresh mint leaves, for garnish
In a small bowl, stir together the cinnamon and sugar. Set aside.
In a food processor or blender, combine the strawberries and powdered sugar. Pulse until smooth. Pour onto chilled dessert plates that have a rim. Arrange the sliced fruit on top. Sprinkle with the cinnamon-sugar mixture. Garnish with fresh mint and serve immediately.
