Even my Little Buddha loves Starfruit!

When we need a fruit packed with Vitamin C we tend to always reach for an orange.  Well now you can try and reach for a super cute and super delicious Starfruit!  Kids and grown-ups will love adding this fun shaped fruit to any meal!  This Little Buddha especially loved it for breakfast while doing a yoga retreat in Costa Rica.  These nutrient dense wonders grew on the trees right there at our retreat in Punta Mona!  For a tropical breakfast packed with vitamins, fiber and flavor, try this:

Here are your awesome facts about the Starfruit :) 

Fun Facts for Kids:

Even a super ripe Starfruit’s sugar level will never pass 4%, bringing the kids bonkers level to a minimum! I guess this could be a fun fact for grown ups as well then ;) 

Starfruit provides 57% daily need for Vitamin C so kids can fight off all those gross germs they are surrounded by all day at school! 

Starfruit is so cute and fun that kids won’t be able to resist indulging in this super healthy snack! 

Fun Facts for Grown Ups:

Starfruit has 3 grams of dietary fiber, 11% total RDA, so you won’t get so hangry so quickly!

The anti-oxidants in Starfruit help flush out irritating free radicals that try to destroy your beautiful, radiant and elastic complexion.  

Free radicals not only destroy your beauty or handsomeness but they also damage DNA of cells.  When these damaged cells multiply and invade healthy cells, cancer begins to rear it’s ugly head. 

Share how you enjoy your Starfruit :)
