NUTRITIONAL INFORMATION

Although this is actually a summer recipe, during the winter months of central heating we need to protect our skin, so it makes sense to eat lots of anti-oxidant fruits such as berries, peaches, nectarines, papaya, blackcurrants, passion fruit and cherries, indeed all of these would be suitable for this recipe.

Both peaches and raspberries are high in vitamin A, vital for skin health. Without this vitamin, skin will age and become unhealthy, there is simply no alternative for healthy skin at cellular level. Protein is the builder of healthy skin, provided by the yoghurt and almonds, it also helps to support blood sugar, thus sustaining energy and reduce cravings. This is an easy, refreshing, breakfast, snack or dessert for any age group, using any summer fruit.
