Eating healthy foods doesn’t mean saying no to all desserts. For me, it means finding recipes that satisfy my sweet tooth but also help me meet my goals for daily fruits and vegetables. This recipe for a frozen treat is low in fat and loaded with fruit and fiber. Plus, it’s colorful and tasty!
I like to divide the portions into pretty bowls, even if I’m not having company. It’s a treat to enjoy a cool dessert after a long day and know that it’s good for me!
If you don’t have a blender, you can get a workout and make this by mashing the fruit with a fork. You can also use this mixture to make homemade popsicles!
Note: our crew found this frozen dessert tasty but a little tart to their taste buds. I recommend tasting the mixture before you pour it up. You can add a little honey or more sugar before you freeze it. Another option would be to use a flavored or sweetened yogurt instead of plain.
