Bionico is a popular Mexican dessert that originated in the city of Guadalajara in Jalisco, Mexico, in the early 1990s.[1][2]

It is essentially a fruit salad consisting of a variety of fruits chopped up into small cubes, drenched with crema and topped off with granola, shredded coconut, raisins and sometimes honey.[1][3] Any kind of fruit can be used, but it is most commonly made with papaya, cantaloupe, honeydew, strawberries, apples and banana.

The crema[edit]

The word crema is Spanish for cream, in this case the "crema" is usually a mix of condensed milk and sour cream, although there are many different recipes[1][3] (some include yogurt).[4]

There is another variation of the salad which uses cottage cheese instead of the crema. This variation is usually served with honey drizzled on top.[5]
