Fruit Salad is a wonderful treat at any time of year. A delicious, filling breakfast. A healthy desert. A great snack. It's always slightly different depending on what fruits are available at the time of year.
|A near perfect fruit salad-pear, fig, raspberry, blueberry. Heaven.|
The GI ratings of individual fruits can be tricky to remember, but you can make some generalities.
Temperate fruits tend to be ok. Orchard fruits, citrus and berries.
Raspberries- although untested, have little or no carbs. YAY I think they might be my absolute favourite fruit!
|Fig yoghurt completes it|
Tropical fruits are more problematic, with just 2 being low GI.
Mango (51) Although mango is a very close second.
Other tropical fruits have higher GI values, but that doesn't mean you can put some in a fruit salad.
Paw paw (56)
Rockmelon/cantaloupe (88) is this the reason it's my favourite melon?
The GI of figs hasn't been done, but dried figs are medium GI 61.
