Bee Sweet Citrus Celebrates Summer Citrus for Fourth of July Festivities
- by Lillie Apostolos
FOWLER, CA - Few things satisfy thirst like freshly squeezed lemonade or a bite into a juicy orange or mandarin. Bee Sweet Citrus is celebrating the availability of its summer citrus varieties throughout the season’s festivities.
“With the 4th of July holiday right around the corner, families are looking for healthy, tasty snacks to provide to their children during their holiday celebrations,” stated Bee Sweet Citrus Director of Communications Monique Bienvenue. “Citrus fruits, such as lemons, mandarins, and oranges, are extremely versatile and are perfect for summer barbeques and other seasonal gatherings.”
Easy to use in a variety of ways, multipurpose lemons, mandarins, and oranges are cholesterol and fat-free, according to a press release. The latter two make for great toppings on parfaits and salads, and the former makes for a refreshing salad dressing. Citrus fruits are an easy addition to main entrees, fruit salads, and so many other dishes needing a crisp flavor or some added zest.
“If parents are looking for healthy alternatives to junk food, there are many citrus-themed recipes they can try that are not only healthy, but incredibly tasty too,” Bienvenue continued. “On a hot summer day, they can indulge in iced tea with lemon infused ice cubes, or even top a parfait with a few mandarin segments. The opportunities are limitless!”
The healthy snacks, with less than 50 calories per serving for all three types of citrus, offer Vitamin C and fiber and are a great addition to fun weekends at home or away on holiday.
