What’s In Season | Fresh Fruits

The temperature these days just won't drop!

What's the best way to survive the heat? The brand new Baopals Supermarket officially opened recently, so it feels right to recommend a few juicy fruits from there to help us all cool down a little. Try freezing the fruits if you want to preserve them or use them in smoothies, or combine several of them together for a refreshing fruit salad!

Highly nutritious and healthy, you can add avocado to your salad, green smoothie or smash it and smother it on toast. And let's not forget about guacamole!
