Dessert lovers, this WOW is for you!
We’ve all heard this advice…”If you want something sweet, grab a piece of fruit.” Well…I say phooey to that. When I’m looking for dessert, a plain piece of fruit just ain’t gonna cut it.
So in comes my solution:
Fancy Fruit Desserts
FRUIT + a few extra ingredients to make it feel
like a real dessert!
When you have a sweet tooth, fruit is one of the best things you can grab because it has:
✨natural sugar to satisfy your sweet tooth
✨phytochemicals to strengthen your cells
✨gut friendly fiber
So a FANCY FRUIT DESSERT uses real fruit as the base, adds a few extra ingredients, and voilà…you have fruit that feels like a special dessert. Fancy!
