Super Simple Fruit-Based Desserts

Simple Strawberry Frozen Yogurt

(Makes about 4 servings)
1/2 cup sugar
1 package (16 ounces) frozen unsweetened strawberries
1/2 cup plain nonfat yogurt
1 Tbsp. lemon juice

In a food processor, add sugar and strawberries. Pulse until chopped coarsely. Slowly add the yogurt and lemon juice while the food processor is still running. Process until smooth and serve immediately.

Broiled Pineapple

1/2 lb. pineapple
Nonstick cooking spray

While preheating oven to the broil setting, coat a broiler pan with nonstick cooking spray. Core your pineapple and cut wedges lengthwise to make 8 spears. Put pineapple spears on the broiler pan and cook for 20-25 minutes or until golden brown and tender. This is tasty served with a dollop of fresh whipped cream or ice cream and a sprinkle of cinnamon!

PB&C&C Bites

1/4 cup chocolate chips
1/4 cup peanut butter
2 large bananas
Coconut flakes

Cover your working surface with a sheet of parchment paper. Slice bananas. Heat the peanut butter and chocolate chips in microwave (about 1 minute) and stir. Dip banana pieces into the peanut butter and chocolate mixture until they are well-coated. Sprinkle coconut flakes on them and let them harden (about 1 hour).  Alternatively, you could place them in the refrigerator to help them set quicker.

Of course, nothing beats fresh fruits on their own!  Anything in season is bound to be a hit because of its peak ripeness and flavor.

For a special treat, drizzle your favorite fruit LIGHTLY in some melted dark chocolate.  Yum!
