Summer You Will Be Missed
We have those short months from December to February where we can bask in the endless sun on the beach and enjoy the peaks of Summer activities. In this season, fruits such as Cherries, Blackberries and Grapes have flooded the shops and our bowls. But what will we put in our smoothies in Autumn and Winter? Let’s say goodbye to Summer fruits and hello to fruits of the colder seasons.
Bananas are actually an all season kind of fruit. It’s the perfect addition to any smoothie to create a sweet thickness that make any green smoothie go down smoothly. So don’t worry about losing your favourite snack or addition to your smoothie! Also, the riper the banana, the quicker it is digested and converted to muscle fuel. Bananas also contain a high level of potassium which is a very important electrolyte for the body, bye bye muscle cramps.
Seeing a half sliced grape fruit in a bowl with a spoon on the kitchen bench in the morning is the best thing to wake up to. Grapefruits come into season in Australia’s Winter and Spring months. Get your day started with a glass of chilled fresh Grapefruit juice to boost your levels of Vitamin C in the cold days to come. Grapefruit has also been found to enhance the fat burning properties of coffee, so next time you're about to have a morning coffee, consider a cup of grapefruit juice before.
These little fruits can pack just as much Vitamin C as a Navel Orange. Not only are they known for their Vitamin C properties, but they are a great source of Dietary Fiber. They’re a delicious addition to a fruit salad or provides a tangy element to a smoothie. Also you can get creative in how you consume them.
Some may find themselves a bit under the weather with the change in seasons. A lesser known fact is a big glass of Pear juice can actually bring down and relieve a fever. This amazing fruit has many health benefits and will mostly likely be on sale in the upcoming Autumn months.
These are just a few of our favourite fruits that will keep you nourished and satisfied during the colder months of the year.
