We can’t wait for summertime to come round again. One reason for this is that people often like to have their favorites during the warmer months, especially if it’s been a while since they’ve tasted anything watermelon or peach-based.
The summer is a good time to up the fruit intake in your diet. It’s a shame that some of us don’t like fruit or that we can’t afford to buy it. Fruit tastes good, so we recommend that those who don’t like it reevaluate their taste buds. There are many different kinds, and they have a wide range of flavors too!
There is a myriad of different fruits out there, each with unique qualities. Take peaches, a juicy and succulent fruit suitable for making summer desserts such as peach cobbler or peach crumble.
If you want something with less sweetness and more tanginess, perhaps you should try a citrus fruit. You can even find a delicious fruity wine near me. Fresh fruit is a great option, but smoothies offer the versatility of being just blended fruit, and they can be enjoyed in many different ways. For example, you could serve them chilled, iced, lukewarm, or even hot with freshly whipped cream for a nice treat.
Five of People’s Favorite Summer Fruits
1. Satsuma or Luo Han Guo
Satsuma is the tastiest of all citrus fruits. They’re easy to peel and have a lovely sweet taste with a hint of bitterness from the rind when you chew them. They’re also beautiful and don’t spoil quickly, so you can keep them in the fridge for months. But if you want to try something other than satsumas, why not try making your own Luo Han Guo lemonade?
Can’t beat an apple when it comes to simplicity. You get a delicious combination of sweetness, crunchiness, and tanginess with just one bite. There’s nothing like biting into a chilled fresh apple on a hot summer’s day to quench your thirst. But the apple’s versatility doesn’t stop there. It works in a host of recipes, both sweet and savory. We’ve even tried a recipe for a lighter, baked version of the classic apple pie, and it was delicious!
Peach is one of those fruits that’s great eaten any time. Whether you’re eating it in dessert or just snacking on it as you’re walking from A to B, a peach will satisfy. Peaches are lovely little things. Try a peach smoothie for an instant refreshment hit this summer. They’re also very delicious in your favorite summer fruit salad. Find them as a popular ingredient in smoothies. They are great as a filling for cakes, pastries, and desserts of all shapes and sizes.
No summer holiday is complete without a fruity picnic. And what fruitage is more delightful than the dripping-in-goodness banana? The texture of a banana is almost more like that of a date—soft and chewy. They’re often served like an apple, fresh, chilled, and with some apple juice. A banana will provide energy while providing the necessary potassium to keep your heart healthy. Another benefit of bananas? It’s easy to peel them.
5. Kiwi fruit
Kiwi fruit looks exotic and tastes excellent. They’re often eaten on their own or even added to a strawberry milkshake to make it extra delicious. A kiwi’s skin isn’t edible, making them seem more like artwork than a food item, but that doesn’t mean you can’t give them a go (especially if you’ve got kids too young to know any better). They’re sometimes called the Chinese gooseberry.
One of the best ways to get your summer fruit fix is with various fruit smoothies. Smoothies are not just for breakfast anymore and can make a great snack in between meals or even as dessert when all you want is something sweet.
Why not consider fruit gifts if you’re looking for a festive gift? Fruit and vegetable shops throughout the country sell various summer fruits. Depending on the season, these can include berries, melons, bananas, and kiwi fruits.
For an actual fruit specialist or supermarket, shop for your favorite fruits in the summertime and stock up before they go off the shelf. A stash of these fruits will ensure you have something to snack on when you can’t avoid a sweet treat! With a range of different flavors and colors available, it would almost be impossible for you not to find one (or two or three) that you like.
