Redefining desserts with fruits

Fruit is one of the best things that ever came out of the earth. They’re natural, free of bad cholesterol, and improve our overall being when eaten regularly. There’s so much variety of fruits in the world that it’s impossible to not find something you like.

With the world leaning towards green living, our food choices are evolving too. We are now given organic fruits and vegetables and grass-fed meat among others. While adults make a conscious effort to maintain a balanced diet, kids may not. Kids won’t eat what they don’t like to eat – especially if it falls in the category “healthy.”

Today, “healthy” no longer means bland, bitter or boring. Kids can now enjoy being healthy while munching on yummy treats. Substitution is the key. Finding better alternatives is the key – and more, more fruits. Here are ideas to make the best desserts with fruits.

 

 

Milkshake

Your good, old-fashioned milkshake always tastes as good as the first time you had one – always magical and gives a feeling of comfort. Good things, we now have low-fat substitutes to full cream milk, ice cream and sugary syrup, allowing us to enjoy milkshakes. Fruit-based shakes taste better because of the natural flavors that blend with the richness of milk and yogurt. You can also throw in more flavors, with peanut butter, honey and others.

Try whipping up a Peanut Butter smoothie, starting with a banana, low-fat chocolate milk, low-fat vanilla frozen yogurt, natural peanut butter, and low-fat vanilla yogurt. A quick blend of these with a cup of ice lends the kids 20% of the body’s calcium requirement, at only 201 calories. When kids taste it, they’ll think its ice-blended peanut butter cups; but to you, it’s a calcium powerhouse that tastes amazingly good.

Chips

There’s probably no kid who doesn’t like potato chips. There’s just something with the salty taste in your tongue, the crunching sound as you take a bite, and the grease on your hand as you dip in the bag for more that so… right, unhealthy.

Just when you think that only potatoes can be made into chips, think again. We can now use fruits as a better alternative. With so many fruits to choose from, you’ll never run out of options to keep kids guessing what you’ll be serving for the day. Apples, strawberries, bananas and pears are just a few of what you can use. With a little creativity, a spray of color, a flush of heat on the oven and a dash of sea salt, you and the kids can kiss potato chips goodbye.

 

 

Cupcakes

Cupcakes are heaven’s gift to little kids – fluffy, sweet and with a ton of frosting that puts a smile on everyone’s face. With so many variations around, kids love to take a bite from each and every one of them.

You can bake your own cupcakes too, with the same fluffiness, sweetness and goodness that it’s almost sinful – but it’s not. Make it healthier by replacing all-purpose with whole-wheat flour, the butter with canola oil, and the frosting with low-fat, low-salt cream cheese or yogurt. Of course, the main ingredient would be a fruit – from lemons to berries, for the tart taste that will balance the sweetness of everything else.

Just fruits

There is no other way to enjoy the goodness of fruits than to eat them as they are – raw, unpeeled, or however it was meant to be eaten. An apple slice, a bundle of grapes, or mixed berries all taste good on their own.

Although not all kids appreciate fruits as they are yet, it doesn’t mean we have to stop there. To make kids consider eating fruits, pair it up with something that they like to eat. Strawberries with chocolate, apples with peanut butter, bananas with ice cream – there’s countless combination you can consider to grab their attention.

Before, desserts were equivalent to fattening, sugary and junk – but not anymore. The above are just samples of how we can make better alternatives out of something unhealthy. So start today, and help develop the best eating habits that kids will grow up with for the rest of their lives.

Thanks for your post on this website. From my personal experience, often times softening right up a photograph might provide the wedding photographer with a bit of an artsy flare. Often times however, the soft cloud isn’t what precisely you had as the primary goal and can in many cases spoil an otherwise good photograph, especially if you consider enlarging them.

^. . Background: I’m applying for an MFA in creative writing program, and I’ve never taken a creative writing course. Most of my creative writing knowledge comes from research I did on my own. I’m wondering if during my research I at least learned the basics of creative writing, or if I really do need to take a course before starting the program? What do you think? I know most of the literary elements and how they can be implemented, though I can’t say that I implement them well..
