Turn Fruits into Dessert
Turn Fruits into Dessert. From the book “The Miraculous Power of Fruits and Vegetables” by Robert C Hoffman.
At some point in their lives, nearly every kid will have to realize the bitter irony that nearly everything that tastes great is bad for them, and nearly everything that they don’t enjoy eating is really good for them! Their parents are obsessed with forcing them to eat broccoli and kale, but they’re only allowed the occasional morsel of chocolate.
Thing is, most of us never actually stop being bitter about this. Most of us are adults still not really understanding why we have to eat unexciting fruits and vegetables.
The good news? There are ways to enjoy fruits and vegetables that are just as exciting and tasty as fruits. Here are some of the best options.
This won’t sound exciting until you try it. Part of its appeal though is simplicity! Just take a banana, mash it with a fork, and then pour milk on top. You’ll find that this creates a deliciously sweet and creamy meal that also comes packed with all the benefits of bananas.
Another great way to enjoy your fruit is as a lolly. Just take some fruit juice (you can make this yourself), maybe some yogurt, and a little water. Fill into a mold, place in the freezer, and then enjoy sucking on your ice-cold fruit!
Take some blueberries, scatter them into a bowl, and then dollop on top some plain, Greek yogurt. Again, it doesn’t sound super exciting, but it is actually extremely tasty when you give it a shot. And not only that, but it’s also extra beneficial, seeing as yogurt is also packed with good bacteria and can help to protect your gut.
Take lots of pieces of fruit, chop them up small, and then sprinkle just a little sugar on top. That sugar isn’t the end of the world, but what it does do, is to help the juice to release from the fruit – giving you a much sweeter and juicier dish than you otherwise would have had.
Take any cake, ice cream, or anything else and enjoy some fruit on the side! There are some amazing combinations here. Cherries are fantastic with a dark chocolate cake for instance, while raspberries are classic with meringue. If you were going to eat the dessert anyway, why not just make it a bit healthier?
