3 New-to-You Fruits

Even the biggest fruit fanatic (and we love us some fresh produce) can be taught a new trick or two. Okay, maybe even three. HealthGal nutritionist Amy Hendel suggests starting with these three new-to-you fruits.
  • Acai: Scoop them up as dried berries, brew them in tea, or munch them in cereals. These antioxidant-rich Brazilian berries are so versatile you can get a taste of them almost anywhere, including energy drinks and even as a brand-new Jelly Belly flavor.
  • Pluots: A quirky plum/apricot combo, pluots are perfectly sweet. Slice them fresh and add to salads, or use them dried and add to cereal and muffins or mixed with nuts for a great snack.
  • Dragon fruit: Rich in vitamin C and fiber, this native of South America and Southeast Asia adds a wonderful new taste to gum or served in Asian restaurants as a sweet dessert.
