Blackberries with Almond Cream and Cantaloupe

This simple recipe from Carilion Clinic's Dining and Nutrition Services team is both decadent and refreshing, getting most of its sweetness from the colorful and antioxidant-packed fresh fruit.

Lavender Chai Latte

If Mom is a gardener she might be especially impressed with this delicately fragrant beverage, similiar to (but probably healthier) than the floral-flavored lattes offered at trendy coffee shops during springtime.
