Warm Fruit Salad with Chocolate Coconut Almonds

 a plate of warm fruit salad

I am getting ready for some of our summer vacations starting next week by eating more fruits and vegetables. Today is fruit day, which means eat as much fruits you can. As I was looking for a fruit syrup I came across a warm summer fruit salad here. I changed a few things, like a different fruit variety and I used lemon instead of lime (it tasted better with lemon for me), also I used sliced almonds and roasted them with fruit to save time. Even-though, it might be hot out, this is a great fruit salad to enjoy on ice cream, yogurt or just as a snack. Besides being so delicious, this fruit salad packs in antioxidants (in the cherries), vitamin-A (apricot health benefit), and promotes skin health (benefit of lemon skin health).  Here is the recipe I used to make warm summer fruit salad with chocolate coconut and almonds.
