Enjoy a bowl of fresh fruit flavored with vanilla bean and transport yourself to the island of Madagascar. 
Well I’m a week late getting this up, so I apologize about that. I had it all made and ready to go last week, but it was one of those high stress times in my life. Not much got done except around the house. I’ve been doing some huge purging everyday, and then I repurge the same room a few days later. When did we collect so much stuff?

I would love to move to some tropical island, where we live off the fruit that grows abundantly, and a small garden. Our toys would be the sand, and the kids would enjoy working and playing outside all day. Ah that would be the life. 
This month Food of the World is visiting Madagascar. The cuisine there is referred to as Malagasy, which I learned came from the old country name of Malagasy. They eat quite a variety of foods, as they have influence from many countries. When it comes to dessert’s though, it’s usually a bowl of fresh fruit. I was quite excited when walking through Walmart and found a papaya. Here in the frigid north I did not expect to ever find fresh papaya! Sadly it was not the most flavourful fruit I’ve had, but it worked nicely in this mix with mango and vanilla bean.

Fun Fact! I use Rodelle Vanilla beans which are considered “Bourbon” vanilla beans. This is because they come from Madagascar, not because they use Bourbon.
