Whole Foods had the most beautiful display of yellow peaches. Peaches are ideal for on the go snacks, grilling, and fruit salad! I also bought strawberries and mangos, which were on sale (next time, I would also buy blueberries for a pop of color and taste)!
While the peaches glowed a rosy orange, they were hard as a rock and required the work of my son, the fruit scientist. After we returned home, my son grabbed a brown paper bag, threw the peaches inside, and tightly folded over the top. The peaches should be juicy just in time (our hard peaches were ripe in 48 hours)!
If you get asked to bring fruit for a bbq this summer, have fun with it! The colors are so vivid and the flavors, like candy! Combine your favorites and add some fun like coconut flakes, a drizzle of honey, or dark chocolate on top (my family LOVES anything with chocolate). You won’t even miss the summer cakes, crumbles, and cobblers! Get messy! Have fun! And eat healthy!
|This is a delicious tasting super dark chocolate. The darker the chocolate, the healthier!|
If you decide on drizzling chocolate over the fruit:
1.) Use a dark chocolate bar or 3/4 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips.
2.) Prior to serving fruit, microwave chocolate in microwave about 2 minutes.
3.) Use a spoon to drizzle on chocolate.
