Why you’ll love this fresh fruit salad:

  • Quick: Make this fresh fruit salad in only 10-minutes
  • Versatile: Swap any of the fruit with whatever you have on hand
  • Gut-friendly: This fresh fruit salad is loaded with gut-healthy ingredients

Ingredients:

Blueberries: Blueberries are so good for your gut because they are a natural well-known prebiotic. They can support healthy digestion, fight inflammation, and gut dysbiosis. For me, it’s so important to focus on gut-healthy foods in my diet. I have always struggled with gut health, and it’s amazing what eating right can do to transform it. I also depend on my daily dose of Seed’s DS-01®️ Daily Synbiotic. I’ve been taking Seed’s DS-01®️ Daily Synbiotic for a while now and it’s one of the easiest ways I keep my gut in check.

Kiwi: Did you know that only one cup of kiwi contains your daily dose of vitamin C? This little fruit also pacts prebiotic fibers that help protect the gut and keep the microbiome balanced. Another easy fruit to add to your diet, like in this fresh fruit salad, to help maintain your gut health.

Expert Tips & FAQ:

What fruits should not be mixed in fruit salad? Avoid acidic fruits with sweet fruits. To have a nice balance in your fruit salad, it’s best to keep acidic and sub-acidic fruits separate.

What are the ingredients in fruit salad? You can entirely make fruit salad your own, or use what is in season. I love using a mix of berries, watermelon (or another melon), mango, papaya, and kiwi.

What do you put on fruit salad to keep it from turning brown? Coat it with an acidic juice such as lemon, lime, orange, or pineapple juice.
