Fruit salad was a favourite dish at Yoga Holiday With Paul. It is fresh, seasonal, packed with nutrients, and very hydrating. So I decided to create an “at-home” version using seasonal British summer berries.Berry_slider

I was going to call this “Summer Berry Salad Recipe” but I’m not sure fruit salad needs a “recipe”. My approach is to buy the best fruit I can find, preferably at a farmer’s market, then mix into a heaping bowl suitable to share, or to put in containers and take to the studio for a pre- or post-class snack.

Here are some ideas for summer berry combos and extras to make them even more nutritious and healthful.

Berries

Selection of seasonal British berries such as

  • blueberries
  • strawberries
  • raspberries
  • currants
  • tayberries

Extras

  • whole-grain muesli
  • plain dairy or soya yogurt
  • shredded coconut
  • chopped almonds or walnuts
  • raisins or dates
  • chia or sunflower seeds
