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.
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.
Selection of seasonal British berries such as
- whole-grain muesli
- plain dairy or soya yogurt
- shredded coconut
- chopped almonds or walnuts
- raisins or dates
- chia or sunflower seeds
- Mix 200-500g of gently washed berries
- Add 50g muesli
- Add 150g yogurt
- Top with: chopped nuts, dried fruit and seeds
Eat immediately or pop in the fridge for later!
