What are some easy ways to get more fruit in my diet?

I'm not a big fan of fruit so I was wondering if anyone had any ideas on how to "sneak" fruit into my diet or things I could eat that might help. I've starting drinking apple juice and eating granola bars but that's about all I can think of.

  • Try some of that V8 juice that's fruit juice and vegetable juice. I think it's V8 Splash. It's really tasty and healthy!

  • Yogurt or cottage cheese with fruit, V8 Splash and Fusion, berries with a pinch of sugar sprinkled on.

  • Eek.

    Make smoothies - all fruit, no ice cream or yogurt or anything, just fruit.

  • Smoothies! Or you could try something like carrot and raisin salad, which is mostly carrots, but has pineapple juice and bits in it. It is DIVINE. lol V8 has some good juices as well, and there is always ice cream with fruit in it! lol
