This is a cheerful blend of fruits that will help you kickstart your summer’s day! Planning tip: while strawberries and peaches are in season and when pineapple goes on sale, pick up a little extra and prep as instructed below. Store the extra in the freezer to enjoy that summer-fresh taste when the months get colder.
- 1 peach, peeled, cut into 1" chunks and frozen
- 5 strawberries, hulled, halved and frozen
- 1 cup pineapple, diced
Combine all ingredients in a blender and puree until smooth, about 2 to 3 minutes. Drink immediately.

Overnight oatmeal is a piece of cake, and oatmeal is a great food to include in a heart-healthy diet. The only thing to watch out for is added sugar: many of us like our oatmeal covered in sugar. This recipe uses carrots and raisins and spice to minimize the need for sugar while keeping the flavor and texture high. It does include maple syrup, but you can leave the maple syrup out without hurting the flavor if you want to balance the nutrition a bit better.
