Most ingredients listed can be found fresh in Lebanon County

Rec ipes: Watermelon Blueberry Banana Split

Preparation Time: 15 minutes Number of Servings: 4 Cups of Fruits and Vegetables Per Person: 3.00

Plum-Raspberry Dessert Soup

Preparation Time: 30 minutes Number of Servings: 4 Cups of Fruits and Vegetables Per Person: 1.00

Ingredients: 2 large bananas 8 watermelon scoops a watermelon ball created with an ice cream scoop 2 cups fresh blueberries 1/2 cup low-fat vanilla yogurt 1/4 cup low-fat granola Directions: Peel bananas and cut in half crosswise, then cut each piece in half lengthwise. For each serving, lay 2 banana pieces against the sides of a shallow dish. Place a watermelon scoop at each end of the dish. Fill the center space with blueberries. Stir yogurt until smooth, spoon over watermelon scoops. Sprinkle with granola

Ingredients: 1-1/2 lbs (8 medium) fresh plums 1 cup fresh or frozen raspberries 3 (3-inch) cinnamon sticks 1-1/2 cup red dinner wine 1 Tbsp corn starch 2 Tbsp sugar Directions: Combine plums, berries, cinnamon and red wine in saucepan.

M oney-savi ng t i ps:
Eating more fresh fruits and vegetables for less
Mix it yourself. 100% juice from frozen concentrate is often less expensive per serving than pre-bottled juice. Keep it simple. Buy dried beans, peas, and lentils in their raw or uncooked form instead of the processed and packaged versions which cost more. To make many fresh fruits and vegetables last longer, store them in the refrigerator or freezer soon after getting home from your shopping trip. Many cookbooks offer specic freezing instructions. Clearly label your foods in the freezer and refrigerator with the contents and date to stay within a safe time frame.

Finding the most economical way to buy fruits and veggies


uy fresh: apples, peaches, pears, blueberries, strawberries, cherries, cabbage, potatoes, broccoli, carrots, cauliower, kale, sweet potatoes, spinach, squash/zucchini , mangoes, papayas, bananas uy frozen: raspberries, collard greens, turnip greens, okra


uy canned: green beans, tomatoes, sweet corn, green peas, asparagus uy dried: grapes (raisins), apricots

uy juced: grapefruit (frozen), orange (frozen), pineapple, prune (plums), tomato
