It’s officially the lazy, hazy, crazy days of summer. BBQs on the weekends, beach days, pool parties, sun dresses, sweaty workouts, outdoor happy hours, stacks of books to read, eating freshly picked fruit until you could burst. There is just not enough time in the summer to leisure as one should. Not at all. So that’s why I made you this healthy summertime stone fruit recipe round-up. Maybe you went a little overboard at that You-pick farm down the way or were overly excited by the first stone fruits you laid your eyes on at the market. What are you going to do with all of that delicious fruit?! You don’t got time to peruse the internet for a delicious and healthy recipe to bring to your backyard BBQ. There is a beach calling your name! Or a nap. Or a pool.
Since Mama Nature does all the handy work by making these fruits sweet as can be, these recipes have little to no added sugar. There is something for everyone in here, whether you are looking for sugar-free, grain-free, raw, vegan or gluten-free. Check out all these beauties below!
