When you’re looking for your next sugary fix, satisfy your sweet tooth with fresh, in season fruit. When combined with a bit of honey and lime juice, it becomes sweet and flavorful, and a dose of chia seeds packs a nutritious punch..

Serves 4-6

Prep time: 10 minutes

The fruit here is only a suggestion — you can use literally whatever you want.

The best fruit is in season, local fruit, so shop your farmer’s market for the best selection. You can do an all berry version in the spring, and then as summer rolls into full swing, a stone-fruit version with peaches, plums, and apricots would be delicious. Use your imagination to come up with your favorite.
