Make Your Own Healthy

Desserts

 

Here are a few ideas from registered dietitians on making your own healthy desserts.

 

·       Add cinnamon and a pinch of sugar to an apple, then bake or microwave it.

 

·       Cut a banana in half, leave it in the peel then broil it.  It’ll start to caramelize, which makes it sweeter.  Eat as is or top with chocolate or walnuts.

 

·       Put honey on a grapefruit, and broil it to caramelize the natural sugars.

 

·       Freeze 2 graham crackers and 2 Tbs of peanut butter overnight to make an “ice cream” sandwich.

 

·       Mix a bowl of berries, some Greek yogurt and a pinch of sugar.  Then use a cooking torch to brown the sugars to make a creation that tastes like crème brulee.

 

·       Freeze your favorite light yogurt overnight to make your own frozen yogurt.

 

·       Grill some pineapple slices and top them with maple syrup and chopped pecans.

 

·       Mix blueberries, nectarines and granola, then microwave it.

 

·       Slice some pears and sauté them with some maple syrup and a Tbs of butter.

 

·       Mix a few tsp of sugar-free baking cocoa with vanilla yogurt, and it turns into a chocolate mousse.  Top with raspberries or strawberries to make it even sweeter.
