Recently I’ve come across two fruits that I’ve never seen or heard of before. The first, a tiny mandarin orange called a kishu, about the size of a golf ball. That’s it in the photo next to a Satsuma for scale. This tiny fruit was incredible—the easy-to-peel skin revealed the plumpest, juiciest, seedless sections with massive sweet-tart flavor. I don’t know where you can buy these (or if you can at all); my husband’s cousin, a fruit researcher at a nearby university, brought some from work. My kids loved them, and so did I—they were a delightful surprise.

Eating healthy should still be delicious.

The second fruit is one I found on an excursion to the incredible Buford Highway Farmers’ Market just outside of Atlanta. This huge store is more insanely great international market than farmers’ market—with an enormous produce section, aisles and aisles of products from every cuisine you can think of, and no fewer than three kinds of house-made chicharrones. There I found the Mexican mamey fruit, which looked something like an emu egg meets a withered avocado. A quick Internet search told me the fruit’s flesh tastes like a combination of sweet potato, pumpkin, and maraschino cherries (which it does) and that it’s often used in smoothies (which I tried and was delicious). (See it opened up in the last picture.)

I love discovering new (to me) ingredients like these—it’s so fun to try and taste unfamiliar foods. What are some of the coolest food finds you’ve come across?

31 Cool Summer Dessert Recipes

Let's face it—the last thing you want to do on a hot summer day is to cook anything in the oven. That doesn't mean you need to sacrifice delicious desserts. There are plenty of ways to make cool desserts, from using purchased cakes and toppings to cooking on the stovetop or in the microwave. For a quick chocolate craving, make a batch of no-bake cookies, which needs only one minute on the stovetop. Or make a sinfully sweet cheesecake or pie that needs no cooking at all.

If you are planning on entertaining, let your guests build their own shortcakes with purchased sponge cake, whipped topping, and a variety of fresh sliced fruits and berries. Or bake biscuits on a cool day and keep some in the freezer for those quick shortcakes. Keep frozen fruit juice pops on hand for the kids along with instant puddings and flavored gelatin for a dessert that can be put together without a sweat.

If you're short on time, soften a carton of store-bought vanilla or chocolate ice cream and add sprinkles, chocolate chips, crumbled cookies, or bits of edible cookie dough. Mix your chosen ingredients into the softened ice cream and refreeze.

Radiance Fruit Salad

Watermelon Salad

Dress up a bowl of watermelon with a refreshing lemon-mint syrup, blueberries and a pinch of salt.

Quick and Creamy Fruit Salad

Cowboy Fruit Salad

This may look like your average fruit salad, but it comes with a cowboy twist thanks to a drizzle of spicy-sweet jalapeno-lime syrup.

Citrus Blueberry Salad with Almond Relish and Minted Sugar

Bobby's citrus salad is the perfect make-ahead dish for brunch. Macerate segmented grapefruits and oranges in a honey-ginger syrup for at least an hour before serving with a streusel-like topping of almonds, mint and sugar.

Zipper Bag Fruit Salad

Ree&rsquos zipper bag fruit salad is easy enough to make that even the kids can get involved. Simply add apple jelly and water in a resealable plastic zipper bag, spoon in your favorite fruit and seal and shake up the bag to mix everything together.

Grapefruit Salad with Honey-Mint Dressing

Keep things simple but flavorful, Bobby Flay-style, by dressing grapefruit segments up with a mix of honey and fresh mint.

Spicy Lime Melon Salad

Sweet melon slips easily into a savory role once more in a side salad made with hearts of palm, serrano chile and scallions.

Although the skin of the dragon fruit may look scary, it&rsquos actually quite soft to the touch. The spikes on the fruit are not spiny but soft.

You should be able to slice a whole dragon fruit in half easily with a knife. The simplest way to cut and eat the dragon fruit is simply to slice it in half and scoop out the flesh with a spoon.

For a refreshing snack, try chilling a whole dragon fruit in your fridge for a couple of hours. Once it&rsquos cool, slice your fruit in half and eat it with a spoon. It tastes almost like sherbet.

Cool Fruits - Recipes

As parents it’s often difficult to get the kids to try new foods, particularly when those foods are either fruits or veggies. However, I’m sure we agree that letting kids try new foods and making sure they eat nutritiously is a pretty important job.

The following recipes for kids add a little fun and a lot of colourful nutrition to a few breakfast, lunch, dinner, and after school snack favourites…

1. Mars Mission Fruit Snack

Talk about an engaging way to get the kids excited to snack on fruits and veggies! Recreate a Mars Space Mission…but in edible form. However, it’ll be up to the kids to devour this watermelon spacecraft with carrot details.

2. Pirate Ship Fruit Cups

The summer holidays are almost here, and what better snack to eat on a beach than that of a sailboat on water?! Bring a smile to your little one’s face with this fun snack that will fill them up with lots of vitamins and minerals.

3. Rainbow Pizza

This recipe takes a dinner favorite and turns it into a healthier meal by loading up on colourful veggies. Use a homemade cauliflower crust or store-bought whole wheat pizza dough or crust and arrange a multi-array of vegetables in circles according to the order of the colors in a rainbow. So start on the inside with diced cherry tomatoes (or eggplant), then chopped orange bell pepper, follow with a ring of corn, arrange green bell pepper pieces next, and finish with broccoli and red onion on the outer edge. Even better, get the kids to help make a rainbow-inspired meal for dinner.

4. Frozen Fruit Popsicles

With this recipe you can blend your fruit chunks into smoothies first, but they’re quite visually-appealing and colourful when the fruit is left whole. Slice an array of favorite fruits in all colours (i.e., watermelon, mango, kiwi, banana, cantaloupe, peaches, strawberries, and blueberries). Place chunks in a popsicle mould and fill to the brim with naturally sweetened iced green tea (with honey). Cover with sticks and let freeze for 4 to 6 hours. The fruit is naturally sweet enough so there’s no need for sugary juice or fruit punch.

5. Strawberry Mice

Turn your strawberries into sweet little mice and give them their own treat of some cheese! Those cute ears are made of scrumptious milk chocolate, but can be made healthier with dark chocolate instead!
