7 Delicious Fruit Recipes to Reduce Diabetes

Another excuse to eat more fruit!


If you haven’t heard by now, fruit consumption reduces the risk of diabetes. Naturally, this prompts a list of delicious fruit recipes that you have probably been missing out on.

#1 Mango, Avocado, and Pomegranate Salad

Who said a fruit salad had to be just fruit? This delicious recipe takes a boring old salad and adds some tangy fruit to make it exciting. I promise you, if you start adding fruit to your salads you will never look back!

#2 Tropical Quinoa Salad

Fruit salad doesn’t have to leave you hungry in an hour. Instead, add something that is packed with protein and substance, like quinoa, to keep you fuller, longer.

#3 Honey, Lime, Rainbow Fruit Salad

The trick to any good fruit salad depends on what you drizzle it with. In this case, a bit of honey and lime takes an otherwise standard fruit salad to the next level.

#4 Chocolate, Raspberry Breakfast Parfait

This sounds like it’s probably bad for you but it’s not. And that is the most exciting thing ever! It is full of wholesome ingredients that support digestion and brain health. Plus, it is a chocolate and raspberry parfait.

#5 Lemon, Poppyseed Fruit Salad

Lemon poppyseed muffins are so delicious. Unfortunately, they are so bad for you. So take a little inspiration from that forbidden muffin and make a fruit salad worth dreaming about.

#6 Kale and Stone Fruit Salad

Stone fruits are so delicious by themselves. They are juicy, sweet, and bursting with flavor. Throw them in a blender with a few other ingredients and then drizzle it over some kale. You will never look at kale the same way again.

#7 Fruit Salad with Honey Yogurt Sauce

There is no reason that you can’t dress up your fruit salad with a little bit of sauce. Get some healthy, plain yogurt, mix in some raw honey, and drizzle away. You get all the benefits of fruit, yogurt, and raw honey even though it feels like you’re eating a cheat meal.
