I made 2 of these last night for the DM and myself using strawberries and honeydew melon and a vanilla yoghurt - I had already given the DM hers when I realized I had forgotten the poppy seeds so they just went on mine and the as I have fruit left over we shall be having another one tonight. We both thoroughly enjoyed our guilt free dessert, thank you Annacia made for Everyday A Holiday tag game.

We had this on Saturday for our dinner with every dish having "poppy seeds" in it (a total of 6 dishes including several sides and this for dessert). I'm still on "poppy seed" over-dose. I had a bag of frozen, sliced strawberries, so I thawed some out in the fridge. The recipe doesn't state how large of dice to make the cantalope, so I used my really small melon-baller, and it worked fine. The banana I used was a bit 'mushy', but that's okay... the flavor was still there. This was a light and refreshing way to end our meal. Thank you for posting. (Made for PRMR)

Made as given, using some small, extremely flavorful strawberries that I cut in half. Great combo of fruits with the sesame seeds, & a recipe worth making again & again, for sure. Thanks for sharing it. [Made & reviewed in Newest Zaar recipe tag]
