Crazy summer and hot weather push you to go for light food and crave more fruits.
Prickly pears are the magenta-coloured fruit of the prickly pear cactus. It is the season to find them around. The cactus fruit is an excellent source of vitamin C and magnesium as well as a good source of fiber.
Depending on the variety, the taste can differ. The red ones are sweet and crispy with a watermelon/strawberry/kiwi flavor while the yellowish one has a sweet, tropical flavor. It is very refreshing and the texture is very pleasant.
Good, invigorating and sweet way to start everyday!!!
