Spring has sprung! As the weather starts to get warmer, it’s a great time to add some new in-season fruit and vegetables into your weekly meals! Fresh spring produce is the perfect way to inject some vibrance and flavour into your diet, after enjoying typical winter staples such as pasta, soups and comforting meat dishes.
Unsure what produce is in season this spring? Read on below to find out some of our favourite fruit and vegetables, and meals you can make using this seasonal produce.
There are so many delicious fruits in season that are perfect to snack on, add to smoothies or work into your favourite salads! Springtime is all about delicious berries, bananas, apples, mandarins, oranges, lemons and limes so you can add some juicy flavour into your diet!
Towards the end of November, Christmas favourites such as melons, passionfruit, mangoes and cherries are starting to come in season as the warm, summery weather approaches.
One of our favourite recipes to try this spring, is a delicious banana and caramel smoothie which makes for the perfect 3pm pick-me-up! Or, if you’re after a tasty mocktail to enjoy while relaxing in the spring sun, why not try these fruit juice cocktails that use so many of our springtime fruit favourites like oranges, bananas and strawberries!
Embrace the warmer weather and add some much-wanted colour and flavour into your meals, with spinach, carrots, pumpkin, cauliflower, spring onions, beetroot and broccoli all in season during spring. Asian greens such as bok choy and choy sum are also in season and are the perfect vegetables to add to your favourite stir fry or to compliment a tasty calamari dish like this one!
Other meals we love that feature these spring staples include a pumpkin mac and cheese, or a cauliflower and cheesy broccoli bake which are both ideal for those cooler nights in with the family that we still see during the months of spring.
