Fruit Doesn't Have To Be Depressing: Wine-Infused Fruit Salad

By Betchy Crocker

When in doubt for meals, turn to a healthy fucking cookbook. Yah, some are uber lame (like world’s saddest cookbook, Microwave Cooking for One) but others, like Eat More Burn More discuss ways we can have our cake (or booze, or cookies, or shots) and drink/eat them, too.

Whether it’s summer and you’re prepping for a hot bikini bod or it’s the cold of winter and you’re trying not to gain 15 lbs. from Christmas cookies, this cookbook teaches you how to fucking eat like a human being (i.e. no cold pressed raw cookie dough made from plants) without needing to scrounge for pizza or Taco Bell. Thanks, Mediterranean diet. We found their fruit salad, infused with WINE, right up our alley.


  • 1 cup dry white wine
  • ¼ cup honey
  • 1 cup pineapple, cubed (NOT FROM A CAN, FAM)
  • 1 cup fresh strawberries, halved
  • ½ cup kiwi
  • 1 cup apricots or peaches, pitted and quarterd
  • 1 tbsp chopped fresh mint leaves

If you like different fruit, like blackberries and melon instead of pineapple and strawberries, just use that. Like, this isn’t difficult.

Bring the honey and wine to a simmer and cook for 2 minutes, then take that shit off the heat. Meanwhile, in a large bowl, combine all the fruit and mint. Pour the warm wine mixture over, tossing to coat.

Cover and refrigerate until cold, stirring occasionally, at least two hours. Then, transfer the fruit mixture to a wide jar with a tight-fitting lid and keep chilled.
