We’ve danced around a post dedicated to fruit for a while now. Sure, we have covered infused water and how to improve your water intake using fruit, but we haven’t given you a definitive list of the best fruits you can eat. This is that list.
The first of the 91% triplets that will be taking our top three spots today.
Watermelon comes in with a 91% water content, making sure to leave you rather hydrated after a slice or two (or three).
In addition to having the best water content percentage on our list, watermelon offers great values of Vitamin C, Vitamin A & RAE, Potassium K, and Magnesium.
The brother (but only by water relation) to watermelon and just as delicious is the simple strawberry.
Not only do they go well with chocolate or cream, but strawberries can be used in so many desserts and tasty recipes. This helps to keep your taste buds in check, along with your hydration levels.
One cup of sliced strawberries (166g to be precise) will offer you 108% of your recommended daily value of Vitamin C, alongside a healthy dose of Potassium K and Magnesium
At 91% is the humble grapefruit. Weighing in once again with the large amounts of Vitamin C, Potassium K, and Magnesium, grapefruit is an excellent fruit for smoothies and as a garnish for many alcoholic beverages.
Trading off some proficiency in Vitamin C for some extra Vitamin A & RAE is the cantaloupe, the last of our fruits with a 90% or above in water content.
Used in salads, drinks, and desserts – there are plenty of ways to introduce cantaloupe into your diet and try something new!
Peaches are a staple within fruit salads – coming in with 89% water content helps it hold that spot.
Whilst peaches don’t have as much Vitamin C or Vitamin A compared to other fruits on our list, they do trade this off with having small helpings of Vitamin E and Vitamin K.
On top of those fruit salads, there are several ways to bake peaches into great treats.
Nothing wrong with taking the time to go blackberry picking, especially with a water content of 88%! These little guys may not be in the 90% bracket but we love them just the same.
Why do we love them so much? Well, it’s because of the Calcium, Iron, Potassium K, Magnesium, Zinc, Vitamin C, Vitamin E, and Vitamin K. Blackberries are the true all-rounder for a little bit of everything.
Representing South Mexico, the Papaya, weighing in at 88% water content.
If you’re looking for something a little more exotic on our list today, this should hit the spot.
With traces of most of the vitamins and minerals we’ve listed today, the papaya’s main offer lies within its Vitamin C content, such as with the strawberry.
