Try these 20 Fruit-Packed Summer Recipes for Summer 2017! They are loaded with so much juicy flavour and will please your family and friends!

Did you know that summer officially starts tomorrow? What better way to get ready for the summer celebrations than with some delicious fruit packed dishes?! These are my absolute favourite for the season. It also means, you’ll be quenching your thirst while enjoying these recipes. I’ve listed everything from drinks to appetisers to main dishes to even desserts. Several of these are actually no-bake dishes or are prepared on the grill, so the heat of your stove won’t affect your lovely summer celebrations.

Fun facts: many fruits are packed with lots of water, and so keep you hydrated alongside your water. Of course, not every recipe here is meant to serve that purpose, but several, including Watermelon Popsicles, Pineapple Peach Smoothies and the fruit salad, will keep you hydrated and refreshed throughout this entire summer sun. Perfect excuse to eat by the beach/pool! Enjoy!
