Summer makes me long for more fresh fruit. From watermelon, canteloupe, peaches to berries…ripe, fresh, juicy fruit seems to call out to me in the summer. I was at a Hispanic grocery store recently and saw this gorgeous display of fruit. Don’t you just want to grab one and take a bite?
This morning we made fruit smoothies with 1 cup So Delicious Coconut Kefir, a fresh banana, fresh berries, an orange and POM pomegranate juice. Plus, I added a Tablespoon of ground hemp seed for some added fiber and some heart-healthy ground cinnamon.
If you don’t feel like eating fruit fresh from the garden or market (learn how to wash produce here), make a smoothie or a fruit kebab. Kids love fruit kebabs in their lunch at school. My kids devour their fruit kebabs, especially when I send a cup of yogurt of kefir and they can dip the fruit in the creamy dip. Their all-time favorite is watermelon, strawberry, pineapple kebabs dipped in strawberry kefir.
