Fall Fruit Salad

in GEMS5 days ago

This fruit salad combines luscious raspberries, kiwi, banana, and pomegranate in a citrus, maple dressing. The dressing is fragrantly spiced with cinnamon and subtle hints of nutmeg, which are especially favoured around this time of year.

Pomegranates are quite popular this time of year. They are a really special fruit loaded with antioxidants. Pomegranates are filled with succulent little ruby-red arils that looks like small jewels. Thee are filled with deeply flavoured, highly nutritious juice. Not only do pomegranates contain immune boosting properties, but they have also been proven to lower cholesterol and blood pressure, and are highly beneficial for anyone suffering from atherosclerosis. The compound responsible for these wonderful properties is punicalagin, which is exclusively found in pomegranates. Pomegranates are a rich source of vitamin C, and contain many other vitamins and minerals. The benefits from this fruit are pretty much endless, which is why they are considered one of nature’s super fruit.

Raspberries, oh how I miss raspberries. This fruit salad has so many things in it I miss dearly. I used to pick raspberries and blackberries as a kid, and there is no amount of thorns that could stand in my way of filling a bucket.
