There’s nothing quite like an ice cold glass of sangria on a hot summer’s day. Make it a white sangria filled with juicy sweet peaches and luscious plums and you’ll savor every sip! Peaches are a member of the rose family and originate from China. Peaches are not only low in calories (about 70 calories for a large peach), they also contain fiber, numerous vitamins, minerals and health promoting compounds. Imagine getting all those health benefits by simply biting into a ripe sweet juicy peach! And I cannot leave out the petite, yet mighty, plum! Plums contain antioxidants, beta carotene, potassium , fluoride and iron and also have properties that prevent cell damage! I think it’s time for some Peachy Plum Sangria!
