One of our favorite foods to eat in the summer is fruit. Fruit salads, fruit smoothies, or fruit by itself! In the summertime, fruit is good anywhere, anytime. What’s best about fruit in the summer is seasonal fruit. Eating fruit when it’s in season is important to ensure you’ll get the best tasting and highest quality fruit you can get. And it’s why fruits like berries tend to be more expensive and don’t taste nearly as good in the winter. If you’re a fellow fruit addict, we’ve compiled a list of what fruits you should definitely be eating in the summer.
Not only is water the best during the summer months, but its high water content will help keep you hydrated in the hot weather.

Not only do mangoes taste delicious, but they’re also high in vitamin A, C, and D!
