Summer Fruit Salad


2 cups blueberries
4 medium pears, diced
One 4 1/2-pound piece of watermelon, peeled, seeded, and cut into 1-inch cubes (about 4 cups)
3 avocados, halved and cut into cubes (avocados are rich in heart-healthy omega-3 fatty acids and may reduce inflammation)

Add any other fruit that doesn't irritate your bladder!

Optional Garnishes:

Chopped fresh mint leaves
Grated fresh ginger (ginger may reduce inflammation)
Coconut flakes
Drizzle of honey or maple syrup (or mix 1 part of honey or maple syrup with 2 parts of a trusted brand of pear or apple juice to create a dressing)

Optional Pairings:

Ice cream
Cottage cheese
Whipped cream


  • Gently mix ingredients in a large bowl.
  • Add one (or more) of the optional garnishes for a little extra flavor.
  • Add one of the optional pairings if you know it doesn't irritate your bladder.
  • Enjoy!

Serves 6-8.
