Easy Ways to Add Fruit to Your Meals and Desserts

Summer Rolls

Summer rolls are a versatile way to experiment with fruit combinations (and also are a savory, Vietnamese appetizer). To start, you’ll need spring roll wrapping paper (about $2-4 per package) and your favorite fruit(s).

To prepare the wrap, you’ll need to soak the rice paper in water for 3-4 seconds and place on a dry plate. Starting with a leaf vegetable as the first layer can help keep the shape. Then arrange sliced fruit on top. Long fruits like cucumbers and bell peppers should be vertically sliced. Once filled, wrap tightly into a roll. You can watch this process here.

Possible Ingredients:

  • Spring Roll Wrappers (example)
    • Some general stores like Acme and Target have spring roll wrappers
  • Spinach, Lettuce, Kale, or Basil
  • Mangos
  • Avocadoes
  • Cucumbers
  • Bell peppers
  • Kiwis
  • Apples
  • Strawberries
  • Oranges
  • Peaches

Frozen Snacks

Cut fruits like bananas, strawberries, blueberries, and grapes and freeze them in sealed bowls. When you want to snack, take them out. Bananas must be taken out of their peels first. Frozen fruits can also be added to a variety of recipes, some mentioned below.

Or cover them in toppings like yogurt or chocolate and pop them in the fridge
