In addition to being a beautiful, bright color, these fruits have a ton of benefits to bring a smile to your face. While you chomp on mangoes, you may be paying attention to their sharp, sweet taste, but did you know that they can also promote good digestion and help to cleanse your bowels? As well as promoting gut health, a mango can boost your immune system. For an easy dessert, roast mangoes and serve with ice cream. A delicious treat that’s secretly healthy.

If you have any sort of health concerns, it is likely that your doctor has already suggested that you consume papaya. It’s not only delicious but has a ton of health benefits for you. They can help those with cardiac problems, as well as those with skin discomfort. A popular folk treatment is using mashed papaya on the skin to soften it. Have this drink warmed up on a frosty day to get a bit of cheer.
Spiced Papaya Rum
– 1 cup fresh pressed papaya juice
– 6 oz. light rum

Mix all ingredients in a small saucepan over low heat. Stir five minutes, or until heated through. Serve in a mug, garnished with a cinnamon stick.
These little fruits are like bundles of delicious antioxidants and nutritious vitamins and minerals in an orange flesh with crunchy (also nutritious) black seeds. Some fruits, like the papaya, have seeds that are numerous, but not good for eating. Not so the passionfruit, where the seeds are a huge factor in the delicious nature of this fruit. Make a fruit punch featuring passionfruit and serve it centerstage at barbecues and other summertime get-togethers.

Mix all ingredients together, serve over ice with chunks of pineapple to garnish.
