Summer is still here and there is plenty of time for backyard barbeques with all the fixings. As a dietitian I feel it is my duty to bring something that is it not only healthy but that everyone will like and in fact eat. You can't go wrong with this recipe. Who doesn't like berries and mangoes? And you still have a short time to enjoy them while they are in your grocery store.
I'm not crazy about the name 'Summer Blast' so if you think of a snappier one please do share :) Until then:
2-4 large mangoes, cubed
1 pint blueberries, washed
1 pint raspberries, firm, washed
Throw all the fruit in one big bowl, mix, and you're done! (it's really that easy)
Tip: if your raspberries are less than firm mix the mangoes and blueberries together first , then throw the raspberries on top right before serving.
This recipe is low in calories, high in Vitamin C and fiber, packs potassium and loads of all kinds of disease fighting phytonutrients like anthocyanins, carotenes & phenolics (anti-oxidants) ellagic acid (anti-carcinogenic, anti-bacterial-viral), the list goes on and on. But most importantly, it's yummy! Your guests or hosts will no doubt be impressed.
Have a fruit and veggie filled day!
