Fruit Recipes: Fruit Salad

Ah, who doesn’t love summer and heat? Those long days at the beach or besides the pool, relaxing with a drink next to you and charging your batteries. However, this is the time where the heat pushes you to consume more fruits and remain hydrated all day long. But since fruits alone might be boring sometimes (especially after you eat them all summer long!), here we have some creative fruit recipes for you!

1. Apricots with honey and spices. Although it’s not one of the most common recipes for fruits, we can guarantee you it’s absolutely delicious! You will only need some water, sugar, one cinnamon stick, apricots, lemon juice, orange zest and honey. Simply place them in a jar and let them soak. You can either consume it like this or use it for other crazy combinations: make your own fruity yogurt, froze it for an original type of ice-cream or use it for a cake.

3. Fruit pie. Initially we wanted to recommend you a peach pie, but then we thought again about it: why limit the options only to peaches? Any fruit is good for a delicious pie in the middle of the summer. Just like with any other pie, you should use crumbled biscuits, sugar, egg whites and butter for the crust. Then, add your favorite pudding flavor and decorate with some pieces of your favorite fruit. Extra tip: you can also add chocolate if you’re not on a diet!

Fruit Recipes: Nutritious Food

4. Colored Fruit Salad. Fruit salads are a great way of ensuring your nutrients for the day, while also eating as many fruits as possible. And if you need more arguments to try one of the greatest fruit recipes, it’s the fact that you can combine any fruits you want and any toppings. Just imagine a delicious combination between strawberries, blackberries, bananas and peaches, topped with honey and cinnamon or some melted chocolate. Are you craving it yet?

5. Watermelon and chocolate. Yes, any fruit with chocolate is excellent, but watermelons are even more, since they are juicier. Cut a watermelon in halves, scoop out the content and cut them into cubes. Pour chocolate over them and add other things if you like: whipped cream, other toppings, fruit spreads, honey or other spices. Enjoy!

For those days with unbelievable heat when the sun is shining high in the sky, you should try out these delicious fast fruit desserts!

Fast Fruit Desserts: Fresh Dessert

We all know those moments when we want to eat something fresh, delicious, but at the same time easy to cook. If there aren’t many cakes that need a short cooking time, thankfully there are lots of ideas for fast fruit desserts that will save you from spending a lot of time in the kitchen. Let’s see some ideas!

1. Use chocolate! Of course, what can’t miss from a delicious dessert? Chocolate! Probably the most popular dessert is made of strawberries covered in chocolate, but you can also vary the menu. Try bananas and chocolate and basically any of your favorite fruits will taste amazingly if you want this combination on your plate!

2. Make crazy combinations! You like pistachio, coconut and pineapple? Why not combine them for a fast fruit dessert? Add cream, coconut milk and sprinkle chocolate over and you’ll have one of the tastiest desserts you have ever tasted in virtually no time! Also, the combinations can vary a lot, and the limit is only your imagination. Moreover, this idea is great if you have some guests over, since you can prepare a separate dessert for everybody, depending on their own taste and preferences.

3. Ice Cream. What reminds you most of summer other than ice cream? Don’t be afraid to use it in the craziest combinations. You can add the same fruit the ice cream is made of, for instance if you have a bowl of pineapple ice cream, you can add some fresh pieces of pineapple to complete the taste. Alternatively, you can combine several flavors, for instance, real cherries with chocolate ice cream, or vanilla with raspberry, strawberry, etc. Add some caramel topping for extra sweetness!

4. Alcohol. Even though it shouldn’t be used in large quantities, alcohol is a great idea for a fruit salad or a fast fruit dessert. Add some Grand Marnier and some lemon juice over strawberries and add whipped cream. You will be amazed to see how much this changes the original taste and how the dessert gets new subtle fresh hints.

5. Freeze fruits. A great addition to any dessert are the frozen fruits. Cut pieces of banana, kiwi and berries and store them in the freezer. Then use them for any fast fruit desserts, combine them with the already mentioned ingredients or simply with a couple of them. More than that, this idea is brilliant because you can use the fruits for other things in the kitchen also. If you’re making a more complicated recipe, you can make it even more delicious by sprinkling frozen berries, not to mention that they are a great companion to ice cream or even smoothies.

6. Mix hot and cold. A surprising, yet tasty combination is the mix between hot and cold. If you love pancakes, try combining them while they’re hot with some ice cream and also some frozen fruits. The melting ice cream is absolutely delicious, while the fruits bring some extra flavor to a great dish!
