Every time an article tells me to use fruit for dessert, I find my eyes involuntarily rolling in to my head. What can I say, dessert for me involves chocolate.
This tends to happen again when I come upon the next magazine article for a day of clean eating which is always filled with DAIRY. I won’t go down my list of all the reasons why being dairy free (most of the time) has served me well, you can read about it here.
Instead I’ll say, it’s definitely forced me to rethink food and that has been a very good thing! While I may not call fruit dessert, I definitely call it a fantastic snack and since my sports nutrition friends keep pushing me to up the protein, I took that to heart with this healthy summer snack recipe!
- Place fruit on baking sheet lined with parchment paper
- Pour yogurt in bag and squeeze out (I did this so I could make little frozen drops of yogurt too, like dippin’ dots!!)
OR use a toothpick to dip each berry
- Place on sheet with space between so they don’t stick together
- Place in freezer for about an hour to fully solidify, then you can enjoy or transfer to baggies for quick grab snacks later.
Not only is this easy, but it was actually really fun. I’d totally do this with the nieces and nephews to get them excited about a fruity snack. A serving of this dairy-free yogurt has 6 grams of protein, non-gmo, lactose free and no carrageenan (big for me as I realized this is an issue). Serve it up Ideas
A. Cereal (who needs milk). Ok my close circle knows that I am OBSESSED with cereal. I am usually snacking on a combo of gluten free options from Love Grown Foods and Chex…this basically just made that even better!!
B. Kabob. Group setting?? Try putting all the blueberries on a kabob stick, dip, freeze then you can serve sans messy hands!
C. Dots. Make the dippin’ dots as noted above with a variety of flavors, so you get lots of colors, then just serve along side the fruit.
Do you consider fruit dessert?
Do you change your snacks during the summer?
