The Ultimate Summer Fruit Platter

There’s absolutely an art to putting together the perfect fruit platter for Summer and today we’re diving in!

The Ultimate Summer Fruit Platter

I do quite a bit of entertaining and my favorite thing to do before everyone arrives is have a few things prepped and ready to go. That way when people get here, there is always something to nibble on and I’m not stuck running around asking people what they want to eat. Guacamole, chips and salsa are always a given. Hummus and tzatziki with some crudité happens on the regular. And during the summer months I love to put out a giant fruit platter with all the colors of a rainbow! Between those 3 things, some beverages, Palm Breeze naturally, and your friends… I’d say you’re well on your way to a perfect evening.

Red

  • Santa Rosa plums
  • Strawberries

Fun right? Doesn’t it look gorgeous!? Serve this up for your next party or brunch and watch people go crazy! Don’t forget to put your favorite Palm Breeze flavors on ice so you’re locked and loaded on all fronts! My favorite to serve alongside fruit is the Strawberry Pineapple Palm Breeze because it’s the perfect fruity pairing to all the gorgeous fruit!!
