Watermelon is filled with antioxidants and lycopene to name a few of the healthy benefits it offers. I suggest putting it into a juicer and making some really tasty watermelon juice. Trust me, it’s to die for!
Avocados are truly the king of the green fruits if you ask me. They are arguably one of the healthiest fats (monosaturated) that you can eat!
If you have not tried avocados with a side of eggs and tomatoes, then you really don’t know what you’re missing. This meal is a staple in my mine home during the summer!
Since we mentioned this fruit with avocados, it makes sense to give them their due justice!
Tomatoes are filled with antioxidants and are very heart healthy! Secondarily, there is research out that shows they provide bone health and anti-cancer benefits!
Cherries are the fourth of our seven summertime healthy fruits. They are tart in taste when eaten raw, but they have sweet cherries too.
Cherries provide a great source of Vitamin C and fiber and they go great in smoothies.
Perhaps no other fruit besides watermelon is as water packed as the cantaloupe. As a result, they make for the perfect body hydrator during the summertime.
Cantaloupes are packed with beta-carotene that can be converted to Vitamin A. As a result, Vitamin A helps grow new skin cells! So, if want healthy new skin, think about eating some cantaloupe!
Blueberries have antioxidants and fiber and go really great in smoothies too!
Also, there is research out that shows certain properties in blueberries help limit fat storage and increase your body’s ability to burn fat!
Kiwifruit is the final of our seven summertime healthy fruits. This fruit is the other powerful green fruit! This fruit actually has more Vitamin C than oranges! Pretty cool right?
