Fresh Fruit Kebobs
Summer is the perfect time to eat a variety of delicious fruits that are in season. One great dessert you should try this year is fresh fruit kebobs. All you have to do is put big, juicy chunks of pineapple, mango, banana, grapes, strawberries and blueberries on a stick! You are good to go!
Drizzle your kebobs with your favorite fruit spread.
Another great dessert to try is fruit pizza. Pizza is always a winner because you can top it with just about anything. All you need to do is cook some homemade or store bought crust and spread on it a thin layer of Neufchatel cheese mixed with a hint of your favorite sweetener. Pile on fresh berries, dust your pizza with powdered sugar and you will have a mouth-watering meal right in front of you.
Chocolate Almond Banana Pops
If you are looking to eat a healthy but tasty frozen treat, try chocolate almond banana pops. Simply dip a few bananas in chocolate and roll crushed almonds on them. Stick your popsicles into the freezer until frozen.
Last but not least, make chocolate brownies. Yes, we said chocolate brownies. Brownies can be made healthier when baby food prunes or applesauces are swapped for butter or oil any almost any brownie recipe. Serve with a warm scoop of frozen yogurt or low-fat ice cream.
