Once in a while we splurge and indulge in some sugar. I don’t believe that hurts our bodies. They are only hurt when they are craving real food and we give them sugar and junk instead. But there are birthday parties, holiday events…there are times to indulge just a bit.
I love the fact that even when we splurge, we can use God’s good, health-giving food for many of the ingredients.
This is a decadent-looking dessert, but much of it is fruit. I think the secret to staying on a health-giving diet is to be creative and to make food that contains good ingredients more attractive, more delicious than food that contains nothing but junky stuff.
You could even add a dollop of real whipped cream to this scintillating dessert, because contrary to some thinking, real whipped cream and real butter, in moderation, are good for us!
For this dessert, simply have a slice of angel food or pound cake, add some berries that have been drizzled ahead of time with honey, and drizzle with a bit of chocolate syrup. Add that whipped cream on top, and there will be oooo’s and ahhhh’s!
I enjoy doing food photography, so I’ll probably be sending more dessert ideas, and someone has to eat the finished product afterward, right?
