How to Measure a Cup of Fresh Fruit

by Francesca Ayala

Fresh fruits are a delicious and healthy snack and cooking with them is extremely simple. Here's how to measure a cup of fresh fruit.

Choose the fruit you want to use in your recipe and wash it in the sink.

Depending on the type of fruit you choose, peel, chop and remove leaves and stems as necessary.

Place the fruit into a measuring cup. Make sure the contents fill the cup entirely and are leveled with the "1 cup" mark. If you do not own a measuring cup, you can estimate. A cup of fresh fruit should fill a bowl as much as 14 cotton balls can.

Serve your cup of fruit in a bowl and enjoy your snack.
