Yess!! Watermelon berry fruit salads are extremely healthy. They come with a ton of fiber, antioxidants, and refreshing properties to keep your body hydrated all summer long.
The honey added to it, especially if it’s raw honey will also add some incredible health benefits. But don’t worry if you don’t have raw honey. The sugar from that is so little that it shouldn’t wreck havoc in your body. Plus having this over cakes and cupcakes is always so much better!
