Lunchbox Favorite: Curried Fruit

*Disclosure- I received the mentioned product courtesy of the sponsor for the purpose of this review. All opinions are genuine, based on my experience with the product, and have not been influenced by promotional items.

In an effort to save money and eat a little healthier, Jason stopped dining out on his lunch breaks a few years back, opting to take healthier meals from home. Additionally, Mariah and Allison refuse to eat school food, so they pack their lunches every day, too. This year, Allison's school is offering free breakfast and lunch to all students, and I don't know if I find it funny or sad that they can't even give the food away free to entice the kids to eat it. I used to eat lunch with Allison, and I don't blame them for shunning school lunches. Simply put, they are disgusting

I try to keep the lunchboxes exciting for the family, always looking to surprise them with something new to keep things fresh throughout the year. When I came across this Curried Fruit recipe on Golden Blossom Honey, I thought it would be a fun lunchbox addition

This fruit cocktail is a real tropical treasure. Not only is it a new lunchbox favorite, I like to have it as a light breakfast or after dinner dessert. You can eat it warm or cold, either way is scrumptious!

1 (20 ounce) can peaches, drained
1 (20 ounce) can Royal Ann cherries, drained
1 (20 ounce) can pineapple chunks, drained
2 (11 ounce) cans Mandarin oranges, drained
1/2 teaspoon curry powder
juice of 1 lemon
2 Tablespoons butter or margarine


You can find this recipe, as well as many more delicious recipes right on the Golden Blossom Honey recipe page! Be sure to follow Golden Blossom Honey on Facebook and Twitter to stay up to date on new products and promotions.

  1. I will admit I like fruit now more than I did a few years ago. I think I may give this a try :)

  2. Boo on the canned things :) I shall come over there and burn your stashes of cans :) We never had kitchens and lunches at school so I wouldn't really know what was my lunchbox fave LOL I'd take a sammich with me, usually, since our school starts at 7.30am.

  3. lmao that is pretty ban that they can't give free food away. Fruit and I don't get along.

  4. It looks yuuum indeed, Theresa. perfect for a warm day like this :)

  5. This looks like a great lunchbox addition. I like to add some fresh fruit and yogurt to my husbands lunch box.

  6. Curried fruit sounds so goo! This would pair perfectly with some home made whipped cream.

  7. I love fruit but I have never had it curried before. It sounds like a fun twist on the normal fruit side!

  8. Oh now that sounds interesting and looks quite delicious! I might have to give that one a go!

  9. This sounds interesting. I've never heard of curried fruit before, but it looks just delicious! - Jeanine

  10. Ooooo! Love this. Would be great with a spicy chicken dish or over yogurt too. Great idea!

  11. I never thought to eat it warm. I bet it is really good that way though!

  12. This is a delicious lunchtime treat. I will have to give this recipe a try. I love fresh fruit for lunch with a salad.

  13. I usually don't buy canned fruit. This does look good though.

    We take all kind of things in our lunches.

  14. I would have never thought of curried fruit. I am gonna pin this one!!

  15. What a lovely treat! I'd like to see how you pack your lunchboxes. Do a post on that some time?

    1. Our lunchboxes are nowhere near as crafty as yours! Mariah even switched over to the brown paper bag so she doesn't have to tote around her lunch kit to class after eating. So, we use a mixture of plastic baggies and a few reusable containers she can just tuck into her backpack after lunch.

  16. Yup, my two would love this. It would make an awesome snack for me, too!

  17. I eat a lot of fruit so your recipe is very welcome. I bet the honey gives the fruit a great flavor. Can't wait to try it.
