Nothing rings in the summer season like stone fruits. They’re luscious, juicy and their bright colours liven up any recipe, sweet or savoury. And even better, stone fruits are packed with health-boosting nutrients.
Cherries and plums contain potent antioxidants that help fight inflammation, whereas the vitamin C found in peaches and nectarines supports clear skin and good immunity. Mangoes are a rich source of betacarotene, which plays an important role in your eye health. Not that you needed any more reasons to enjoy these juicy fruits!
The only bad news is that stone fruits are only available for a short while. So we better make the most of them while we can. From breakfast to salads and desserts, sweet meets savory in these 15 healthy stone fruit recipes!
