A Berry Good Dessert

Posted by Skinny Jane on 11th Jul 2016

It would be a safe assumption to say that American's have a sweet tooth. A quick scan of popular blogs and websites will show you a million and a half recipes and hacks to make your treats "healthy". But why not get to a sweet dessert that is genuinely healthy for you?! What could that be, you ask? FRUIT! Try these simple ways to not only satisfy a sweet tooth but also increase your fruit intake and get plenty of anti-oxidants!

Make a Smoothie 

Frozen berries are an amazing alternative to ice. Not only will they thicken your smoothie like ice but they will add sweetness, anti-oxidants, and fiber. Berries will amp up and add a depth of flavor to all Skinny Blend  varieties! 

Grill It!

Brush honey and a pinch of cinnamon on pineapple and citrus and grill on the top rack. The natural sugars will caramelize and you will be able to enjoy your favorite flavors with added sweetness and complexity. You can even squeeze the citrus juice over meats and salads!

A Better Butter

Believe it or not, avocado is actually a fruit. Make a pudding or mousse by mixing one ripe avocado, honey, cocoa powder, and some coconut only until thick and creamy. You can also mix 1/2 cup of frozen berries, 1/2 a banana, and 1/2 a ripe avocado together to make a smoothie "bowl".

These are just a few ways to enjoy fruit as a dessert. Of course, we think one of the best ways to enjoy fruit is the above mentioned smoothie. You can also always have a raw piece of fruit post dinner or workout. Let us know you're favorite way to enjoy fruit in the comments below!
