Most of my friends, like me, try to eat healthy at least most of the time so when I have guests for dinner, I often turn to fruit to end the meal. We can almost always get local strawberries so I definitely gravitate to those. Beautiful clamshells full of fat, juicy blueberries get my attention at the warehouse store. This week, my local grocery store had a great special on raspberries, and they weren’t already moldy and mushy so I grabbed them! (Don’t you hate it when your berries go south as soon as you get them home?)
Here is a super simple, very versatile dessert. Approximately 95 calories, 23 grams carbs, .7 grams fat, 4 grams protein as depicted
1 cup of raspberries, (or any berry or berry mixture)
2 TBSP non-fat, plain Greek yogurt
Drizzle of Agave nectar (or natural honey)
Sprinkle of cinnamon
Find a pretty glass or bowl and add the fruit. Top with yogurt, Agave and cinnamon.
A sprig of mint from the garden would have made a nice garnish!
You could also layer the ingredients and top with ice cream instead of yogurt. Some crunchy granola would also go well, in layers or sprinkled on top. A drizzle of melted dark chocolate would be very nice! See, I told you-simple and versatile. Enjoy! Please tell me about any simple, healthy desserts you share with guests.
