Ways to Enjoy Seasonal Summer Fruit

Our chefs and dining staff at Silverbell Homestead make great efforts to purchase seasonal fruit, and local vegetables, so that residents can receive a wide variety of fruits and vegetables on a monthly basis. It’s all a part of our dedication to the well-being and health of our residents.

Importance of Seasonal Fruit

We spare no expense on our dining menus because we know that eating is important for aging properly. Our teams receive ongoing training to stay current on topics like nutrition, hydration, and how our bodies change as we age.

It would be beneficial to enjoy local fruits from the farmers’ market or grocery store as the summer produce season nears the end. Here are five intriguing suggestions you might want to think about for yourself or a future family gathering.

Creative Ways to Include Fruit in Summer Meals

  • Making your own fruit popsicles is one way to increase both the amount of fruit you get into your diet and the amount of water you drink. You may make your own using only fruit and Greek yogurt, as opposed to store-bought versions that are frequently filled with sugar. Any berry can be used to make a delicious popsicle recipe.
  • Put some fruit kabobs on the grill with the chicken when you’re grilling for supper to liven up the menu. When placed on a skewer, pineapple, strawberries, peaches, bananas, melon, and figs, all taste good. You might even want to drizzle with a little honey.
  • With fruit salsa and cinnamon chips, you can cool yourself this summer instead of with hot, spicy salsa. You can prepare salsa with nearly any fruit, depending on your family’s preferences. For dipping this sweet delicacy, Google a recipe for cinnamon chips.
  • Tart cherries are renowned for their ability to reduce inflammation. Real cherries can be used to quickly prepare cherry sauce, which can be kept in the fridge for three to four days. Options like pork tenderloin or ice cream and cheesecake can be served with it.
  • Not only are soups good on chilly winter days. The summer is the ideal season to prepare cold fruit soup. Whether it’s strawberry gazpacho or beach body fruit soup, you may discover a few cold soup ideas on websites like AllRecipes, that kids and adults of all ages will like.
