  • John,
    You are way to cute!! I know how to make fruit salads ( fresh fruit and ambrosia style), I put honey and cinnamon in mine also. But I just love to watch your vids!! Keep up the great work, keep them coming.
    I hope you, Brian and the boys have a fun day tomorrow. Even more so, since the boys are older. I’m sure they’ll get super excited when they see the fireworks starting to go off. Happy 4th of July, from my family to yours!! ��,��‍��‍��‍���������� Stay safe my friend!!,❤️

  • I love your recipes, I just made one of your chocolate cake Recipes and I LOVED it!!!! I’m soooooooo going to make it for my coming up Birthday!!!! ;3

  • I like to pretend I’m a real adult chef by making big batches of cake pops and meringues (my family has no idea how to make either) and also cutting fruit slowly. Like reallyy slowly. I think quarantine has gotten to me. Love the psychopath fleshy references as well! ����

  • Just wondering if you’ve ever made ambrosia salad. If you could make it on your share would be great. I would make it after I see you make it thank you

  • I’m going on a cruise soon in Miami and I was looking for a simple fruit salad to make while I’m there and your recipes are perfect!

  • First, I’m SO a nectarine fan over peaches and that’s saying A LOT because ONE OF MY FAVORITE fruits are the little white donut peaches! Second, I think I was a fruit bat in a past life because I would be HAPPIEST surviving on NOTHING BUT FRUITS LOL! When I was a child my favorite dinner was when my Mom would take me to the store to buy 5 6 fruits (always making sure to try a new fruit we had never seen before) and a Foster Farms precooked turkey breast (for anyone who lives on the west coast and doesn’t know about these, you can find them in the meat section by the cured hams and they are DELICIOUS!). Then we’d go home and she’d make a fruit salad for dinner and chunk the turkey breast into it with a yogurt, honey, lime, poppy seed and black pepper dressing to go over it! Still to this day this is my FAVORITE meal! Lastly, I LOVE YOUR VIDEOS! I tend to get into a rut making the same things to eat for my family (THAT’S WITH A LIBRARY OF SOMEWHERE AROUND 60+ COOKBOOKS IN MY KITCHEN LOL) and your videos have REALLY given us some new meal ideas that are ABSOLUTELY DELICIOUS AND NOT A SINGLE ONE OF MY 4 CHILDREN HAS YET TO LEAVE THE TABLE UNHAPPY ABOUT WHAT WAS SERVED!……I also just wanted to mention how my 17 year old son likes to watch your videos because he LOVES to cook as well (also he thinks you’re adorable, he says your looks remind him of a pixie!)����

  • #WTF�� no need for all these procedures..it’s just like this putting a few fruits in a bowl sliced/peeled/ etc..and done..like WTF�� is all of this..do we look.like a joke to you

  • I want to be able to make a lot of the things you make but alas, I am but a poor college student. What recipes are like affordable and yet delicious?

  • thank you for this video. I usually do this but I put them on acacia calabash bowls. Looks more appealing and picturesque. #feedgoals #instagramgoals. You can try it too:)
    Bought a set of 4 for $29.00. link here: https://www.amazon.com/Innovatronix-Pieces-Handmade-Wooden-Calabash/dp/B07KWMKLJX

  • I love this! Great for Fruit Salad, BBQ, Camping, Party and Healthy! Buy yours Today!!

  • You need to toss very gently. I made one of these and the berries discolored the bananas and pineapple, making a messy presentation. Had to take it to an event which I obligated myself to. ���� Tasted fine, looked bad.

  • We in New Zealand are called Kiwis due to our native Kiwi bird. It was quite funny to hear you saying about cutting up the kiwis ������������ Love your videos! Lovely to see some summer like dishes so we can pretend it’s warm here at the moment too.☀️☀️. Hope you are safe and well.��

  • I dream so much to be able to have bowls and bowls of these fruit salads every morning. I’m only able to afford an occasional orange or apple each week…fruits are so expensive here, especially the good ones like grapes and strawberries. I’m actually crying. I want my life to be better.

  • Hi ( to all my 100% loyal family) (whoever they are)

    (Well, i have a few thing i could post after im done perhaps )

    Ok and i think after work isn’t really the best time to be writing my book, i just wanna take a shower, watch a movie and relax or something like that.
    (the best times to write/work on my book are off days, and first thing in the morning)

    But also though.

    I wanna get the macbook pro 16 like asap, I dont know how ( but my next pay check i would have like around $3000 dollars, and then i’d have to pay rent so like $1900)
    But if i could get my iphone set up before that. I want to sell my razor blade 15 on ebay. And then i’d have enough to buy the macbook pro 16. And the thing about that is that i could just pick it up from the store.

    But yeah………..

    Anyhow that should be all for tonight actually,

    Today was pretty rough.

    Just tired.

    I got work early tomorrow anyways.

    To (all my 100% loyal family)
    (whoever they are)

    Thanks for reading!

  • I will say nectarines even though I love peaches nectarines are not fuzzy like peaches are and I also love plums and I fell like a nectarine is a cross between a plum and a peach

  • What is the longest period that one can keep a fruitsalade in the refridgerator? Adding more lemon to it? Gordon Ramsey advices a bit of water with that..
    Miss/Missis Geek, would be nice to see more jams.. but you know, geek style AND still environmentalfriendly like in seasonal ingredients, that are at their best and people could buy in bulk.
    How beautiful is dragon fruit?!:O

  • Oranges Kiwis Strawberries Limes and Maple Trees are not tropical so apart from the Mango and Banana that is not a tropical fruit salad

  • Tbh I can’t eat fruit salad without some kind of yogurt whether it be plain, vanilla, just some kind of yogurt. Also, imo I like honey>syrup

  • You should, or could if you want, make a delicious “sauce” for the fruit salad. You take
    3 egg yolks
    3 table spoons of sugar (use the kind you prefer)
    2 tea spoons of vanilla sugar
    5 cl of whipping creme, double creme or heavy creme

    The egg yolks, sugar and vanilla sugar is mixed together to a pale fluffy gooo
    The whipping creme is whipped to stiff peaks and then gently folded into the egg goo.
    I dare you to give it a go John!

  • Hope this person washed there hands before touching that fruit bacteria germs ���� but hey I’m not the one who has to eat that

  • Wow delicious fruit salad! Thanks for the awesome video and I’ll be watching more of your channel.
    Greetings from the land down under

  • I’ve been working out for the past month doing 400-600 ab crunches daily along with 400 500 pushups. I no longer eat unhealthy foods like I did before so just 1 solid meal daily and fruits whenever I’m hungry I drink lots of water right around the clock.

  • Yum. What is your thought on maybe adding a little ginger to the dressing; yay or nay? Didn’t know you had a summer playlist; great idea. Will definitwly check it out. You should cook with your kids; would love that. Hope you, your husband, and kidds are all well and safe.

  • Love all of your recepies and Last week I tried your Mocha cake it was soo Divine & came out perfectly…Just wanted to request you to please make a ice cream cake… lots of Love from Pakistan ����…Hope you fullfill my request

  • Watermelon is not a fruit

    The watermelon is a member of the cucumber family known as the Cucurbitaceae, which includes gourds as well. T

  • What’s wrong with the traditional fruit salad? Adding extra syrup and sweet stuff is unnecessary. Just made a healthy snack unhealthy

  • AOA

  • Uhm uhm, uhm! Delicious, delicious indeed! Sadly i dont like honey. But i will use yogurt in exchange. Btw, are you using frozen fruits as well? Like, strawberry, blueberries, etc?

  • im gonna make a Fruit salat right now with Grapes, Apple, watermelon, Peach, banana and strawberrys�� But for the extra taste… VANILLA sauce! Yum its SO delicious on fruit salads

  • Hi John! I am 9 years old and looooove your channel �� I did your banana muffins in my channel and they turned out sooo GOOD ���� Greetings from Germany.

  • I agree with you I’m totally a nectarine fan as well! love these fruit salad ideas! thinking I’m gonna use one at our next company picnic!

  • I just finished making three of your recipes. This one, you Greek salad and the roasted tomatoes. Just

  • Hi (to all my 100% loyal family) (whoever they are)

    Well just a post

    So yeah my enemies are a 278
    “He is a rubric marine”
    And he is an ESTP and he is the Australian.

    And it’s a 728 is the girl and she’s an ESFP.
    (And that makes a lot of sense since, well she’s apparently the girl I talked to before, and she didn’t have the vibe of a T really……. she was very straight forward honest and even to the point of hesitation)
    (Kind of like the “vibe of Madison/Maddy” the girl I knew in highschool)
    (Oh and just for the record.
    I know Madison was not attractive/fat
    (well she was like “low-key ok” and even that’s being nice actually)
    But anyhow I had INFINITE number of other 10/10 girls that obviously liked me throughout like all of my teenage years.

    Well, obviously my point for saying this is.
    “In terms of looks (face) I’m the best there is was and ever will be (real life)”

    Oh and both my enemies are fat

    Golden is skinny he’s around my age, and so is the other person helping me.
    Golden is most likely on my side. (Idk maybe)
    (So apparently golden is a 978 or something like that.)
    (And he’s my brother, and he’s Simon?
    3w4 translates to 927)
    (But yeah…….)

    And another thing is.

    “Perhaps what I thought about 9’s all along was not correct actually”
    (And I was just talking about my knowledge of the enneagram and stuff.

    But obviously my point is I know for a FACT that
    “In terms of looks (face) I’m the best there is was and ever will be (real life)
    (But yeah I been over all of that already)

    9’s are definitely capable of being loyal.
    Well because my own blood family dad is a 9 and ever since I was a child he always been 100% loyal to me and nobody else.
    (Well like I said before, I was 100% absolutely spoiled as a child, he’d give me pretty much everything I wanted)
    (Within his power ofc, our family wasn’t rich by any means, we were middle class and my dad had a family to support not only me, but yes I was spoiled and I was always preferred over my brother, (like literally 100% preferred over my brother)
    Even when it came to his own brother/nephew and stuff.
    He always took my side.
    But ofc he didn’t “completely cut off connection” (well because it was his brother)
    But idk……. I guess that’s enough for me I guess.
    (And I’m sure he would have “completely cut off connection”
    (if there was a justifiable reason behind it)

    (Oh but I’m just saying “for the record”
    (using this as an example)
    “ofc I hate all my blood family”
    (and I been over that many many times)

    But uhm yeah……… and that should be all actually.

    To (all my 100% loyal family) (whoever they are)

    Thanks for reading!

  • There’s nothing new or special about this fruit salad… but so much empty talk ����������. what really “puzzles” me is when people ask him if they can add plums, lemon etc. to the “salad” the answer is “this recipe” is NOT cut in stone, you don’t need his permission.

  • by the way,if you are wipping up egg whites dont seperate them with your hands cause then the oils on your hand will get into your whites and they wont whip up well.

  • Somehow never thought of dressing my fruit salad and now I have to! Also, as soon as you said your mom was from Mexico I was like, “I see it! I knew I liked him. Hello my fellow pasty Chicano.”

  • Everybody:omg his recipes are so good
    Me:I agree but I’m an a diet:/

  • Hi preppy I saw your video.I really love the way you made fruit salad.My cousin has allegedly from ��. Instead of ��. Can I use ��or plums.

  • Kudos for the Video clip! Sorry for chiming in, I am interested in your opinion. Have you heard about Taparton Burning Fats Takeover (probably on Google)? It is an awesome exclusive guide for discovering a very fast fat loss program without the headache. Ive heard some interesting things about it and my BF after a lifetime of fighting got amazing results with it.

  • I’m going to try make my own fruits for snacks like that, but I’m not gonna add the pineapples cause I’ll go to the hospital if I eat pineapples. But I can eat others fruits so I’m good

  • One day I ate honey and it didn’t go well, I almost threw up. When it comes to fruits like honey dew and cantaloupes, you either love it or you hate it.
    Also nectarines aren’t as juicy as peaches. Team peach all the way

  • If I was just running the fruits under water in my country, my whole family would be dead of cholera. In the times of Coronavirus, Americans should really wash their fruits properly too.
    There are variations depending on the fruits but those with a thick skin like banana, wash them with dish soap and a sponge, then rinse.
    Those more fragile, rinse them under water then let them soak in a bowl of water with chlorine (10 drops in a gallon). Rinse again then use.
    You can also spray vinegar on them. We survive a huge cholera epidemic in 2010 without ever getting sick. We’re slightly more worried for Coronavirus but not really, we have a different defense strategy…

  • That looks very delicious.. nice change to our ways.. I will make and serve it here.!!������thank you…
    I would love to see Your best CACIK recipe.. the one You think very best… I see many different recipes of Cacik.. all similar but differing to each other slightly..����
