Challenge 65 - 3 Fruits

Are you all full up from the yummy chocolate, strawberry and cream from the last challenge we set? Oooh! the number of calories we consumed as we devoured your wonderful creations. Thank you all so much for helping us all (especially us on the DT) to gain a bit of weight!
Maybe we should get a teeny bit healthier this time around to balance things out a little.

Anyway the winner of the last challenge is .....
