¼ teaspoon vanilla extract
1⁄₈ teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 6-ounce container low-fat

Skewer 1 mango cube, then 1 blackberry and 1 blueberry, then a second

Green Bean Bundles
Olive oil spray (propellant free)
36 Alpine Fresh green beans,
1 teaspoon extra-virgin olive oil
¼ teaspoon freshly ground black
pepper, or more to taste
Preheat oven to 400°F. Line a small baking sheet with nonstick foil.
Lightly mist the foil with olive oil spray.
In a small glass or plastic mixing bowl, toss green beans with oil and pepper.
Place a strip of bacon vertically on a cutting board. Lay 3 green beans
horizontally across the end of the bacon closest to you. Roll the bacon
tightly around the beans until you reach the opposite end of the bacon.
Secure with a toothpick, if necessary, and place on the prepared baking
sheet. Repeat with the remaining bacon and beans.
Bake for 8-10 minutes, or until the beans are crisp-tender and the bacon
is lightly browned. Makes 4 (3-bundle) servings.
