Helpful, Tasty Cherries


Summer is here, which means here in Dallas, it doesn't take much time for temperatures to start heating up! This is about the time I start to think about enjoying fresh fruits, and the first to come to mind are dark red, plump cherries. Having a bowl out to snack on while sitting outside, taking in the sun sounds amazing right now! The best part is that not only are cherries delicious, but they also offer a lot of health benefits.

These benefits include:

  • Reduced risk of breast cancer
  • Improved memory and brain function
  • Reduced exercise-induced muscle soreness
  • May help reduce blood pressure
  • Reduced risk of arthritis
  • Help improve sleep patterns

Imagine, getting all of these benefits, and still getting to enjoy this fruit as a delicious treat! Perfect for cooling you off in the summer heat. Take your cherries and other fresh fruits, and turn them into a frozen popsicle to keep you cool when relaxing outside!
