Whilst summer hasn’t quite made it to the UK yet amidst the bizarre confusion of seasons and temperatures currently making up our climate, I’m still hopeful! In fact to show my intent, I decided to make my own home-made Frozen Yoghurt Ice Creams which on a hot sunny day will go down an absolute treat. ‘No hot days in sight’? ‘This is England Faya’? Don’t worry, as it turns out they’re equally yummy on cold rainy British summer’s days when maybe you’re just in need of something delicious nonetheless! (Better to make believe its summer than the alternative!) This recipe is so quick and easy, and best of all it doesn’t rely on any refined sugar to taste so great; rather, it’s berries and fruit that provide all the delicious sweetness here, as well as a multi vitamin hit!

In moderation, and the right type, no! I’m marking the change of seasons with some yummy winter berries. This healthy dessert should satisfy your sweet tooth (guilty!), whilst offering plenty of nutritional value too.

However chomping on the right fruit (like these berries) means you’re not only eating fructose (the lowest-GI form of sugar with a glycemic index of 19, versus a glass of apple juice at 30, table sugar at 65, and glucose at 100), but also enjoying other benefits like fibre (helps digestion) & plenty of vitamins and minerals. By chewing solid food and metabolising it slowly (rather than drinking it straight into your bloodstream) you suffer less of a blood sugar spike. I’d rather have a delicious, beautiful, tasty, bowl of fresh berries with nutritional value including some protein (thanks to the yoghurt, plenty of calcium & vitamin-B too) than a dry cardboard biscuit that claims to be ‘low in sugar’.
The purpose of this berry dish is to promote the intake of… (more…)
Instead of sweets, the sugar here is natural vs. refined, it’s hydrating, and has a host of anti-oxidant and vitamin benefits. If you’re struggling with sugar cravings and don’t want to cut out sugar instantly (resulting in cold turkey), then a tasty & healthy fruit salad can help make the transition. Arranging it in a bite-sized way, and serving with cocktail sticks, is a great alternative to greasy mini-pizzas!
