***Recipe of the Day: Refreshing Fruit Salad***

With summer in full swing, there’s no reason to not take advantage of all the wonderful fruits in season. Berries and stone fruits especially shine through at this time of year. Not to mention, fruits are easy to take along, antioxidant packed and full of fiber! Cool down this summer with a refreshingly cool summer fruit salad and I have the perfect recipe for one!!
1c. blueberries
1 medium peach, thinly sliced
1c. strawberries, halved
1 plum, thinly sliced
1 tsp. of vanilla essences mixed with 1 tsp. of honey
2 TB. of freshly chopped mint
Add all of these ingredients in a bowl and toss. Let this sit in the fridge for half an hour before eating.
Recipe makes two servings
WW pts.: 1.5
Serve this fruit salad with a drizzle of non fat vanilla yogurt or make this into a great breakfast parfait by adding yogurt and granola or almonds!
