Fruit Hacks

Fruits are absolutely delicious, but often tend to have some quirks that make eating them difficult. Here are a couple of hacks to make your fruit experience 10/10 every time.

Banana Ice Cream
Bananas are incredibly versatile- in fact, you can make healthy ice cream by blending the until smooth and freezing them.

Fresh Apple Slices
Keep apple slices from browning by soaking them in 2 tbs. of honey and 1 cup of water.

No Mess Pomegranates 
To easily remove the seeds from the pomegranates, cut the pom in half and place underwater in a bowl. From there, use your hands to easily remove the seeds. Strain, serve, and enjoy!

Hull Strawberries like a Champ
Making fresh strawberry jam? Hull the entire batch with a straw. Starting at the bottom, simply push the straw up the middle of the strawberry for the perfect hull every time.

Left over Fruit
Have a couple of mix-and-match berries left over from a fruit salad. Put them in an ice tray, fill with water, and freeze for a refreshing and infusing water.
