    It's hard to beat fruit salad with yoghurt

  • annapanna  on  3/18/2014 at 3:48 PM

    I like to bake cakes using yoghurt or ricotta instead of butter.

  • kayanelson  on  3/18/2014 at 4:15 PM

    I love desserts and sweets. Dark chocolate is a good dessert or fruit.

    Fresh seasonal fruit.

  • robinorig  on  3/19/2014 at 10:44 AM

    I make my own fruit sorbets. I sometimes lighten up rich desserts like cheesecake with half neufchatel or by adding zero fat yogurt to loaf cakes.

  • hillsboroks  on  3/19/2014 at 4:23 PM

    I love to make sorbets with fruit from my yard and garden and serve them with more fruit with a splash of liqueur.

    A super moist fat free, sugar free and egg free fruit loaf made with Dried Apricots, Pears, Prunes and Figs plus Banana, wholemeal flour and almond meal, courtesy of French chef Gabriel Gate. It's been on my menu for over ten years and is even doubles as a great high fibre breakfast.

  • PatriciaAnn  on  3/19/2014 at 11:10 PM

    banana ice cream made in my champion juicer...the only ingredient is bananas.

    fruit salad

  • kimtrev  on  3/20/2014 at 12:59 PM

    I love chocolate pudding cake. It tastes decadent, but is actually a pretty light dessert.

  • Brandeemk  on  3/20/2014 at 3:54 PM

    I have replaced most of my standard go to desserts with lactose free vanilla yogurt that I put Salba Chia seeds into and let sit over night. The addition of berries and nuts makes it like fruit and cream.

  • Queezle_Sister  on  3/20/2014 at 4:14 PM

    chocolate pudding made with tofu, on and I'm with kimtrev, I love chocolate pudding cake (almost fat free!).

    I stopped making desserts for dinner parties. Now I just bring out strawberries or grapes and Rainforest Alliance Certified dark chocolate.

  • Gunnygoo  on  3/21/2014 at 1:46 PM

    Something citrusy!

  • icywit  on  3/21/2014 at 3:23 PM

    Something with citrus -- a light angel food cake.

  • wkmc57  on  3/22/2014 at 3:27 AM

    One small piece of very good quality chocolate!

  • stardust4300  on  3/22/2014 at 5:31 AM

    I use 1/3 less fat cream cheese and fat free sour cream with splenda to make a cheese tartlette that's what I call it. It is close to a cheesecake. I love DARK CHOCOLATE. So I always have that on hand when I am having a real sugar craving and a little piece of that helps but when you want something baked it is hard to think of anything else so I would love to know about this cookbook.

  • boardingace  on  3/22/2014 at 3:37 PM

    Lately I have been into frozen organic cherries with a drizzle of coconut oil ontop, or coconut cream....yum.

  • herby  on  3/25/2014 at 1:36 PM

    For me it has to be Pavlova! And a close second would be orange scented creme caramel.

  • NelAllan  on  3/26/2014 at 11:30 AM

    Strawberry Mousse

  • ae.bell  on  3/27/2014 at 3:28 PM

    Does meringue count?

    Ripe, in season fruit

  • farmkat  on  3/27/2014 at 4:48 PM

    I have a strawberry soup recipe that I make as a drink. strawberries, yogurt, apple juice, water, cinnamon, cloves and sugar. so refreshing!

    Apple crumble, made with just 1 tbsp of coconut oil rather than butter

  • lovemykitchen  on  3/28/2014 at 8:11 PM

    Strawberries, Cracked Black Pepper, Balsamic reduction....a fresh twist

  • rahiscock  on  3/29/2014 at 6:17 AM

    Baked fruit is my healthy go-to dessert - I grab whatever is floating around my kitchen and needs using up (either apples, plums, nectarines or pears), cut in half, and sprinkle with cinnamon and drizzle with honey, and bake for 15 minutes - serve with low-fat vanilla yoghurt. Or, a another twist on the ever-popular strawberries & balsamic vinegar combo, is to warm the balsamic-marinated strawberries ever so slightly, and stir through fresh mint leaves. Serve with ice-cream. Heaven!

  • Julia  on  3/29/2014 at 6:14 PM

    Yogurt and fruit.

  • gunung  on  3/29/2014 at 6:15 PM

    I like crisp refreshing melon sorbets, in summer when the melons are so sweet and delicious. Make two, one with honeydew and the other with cantaloupe (I'm not sure what you call these in the US, they're the orange coloured ones) and then put a scoop of each in a cocktail glass and garnish with those pretty little blue flowers that restaurants use. I don't want to win this book for myself, I want it for a single mother friend who has just blogged about borrowing it from the library and can't afford to buy it. She says she wants to cook almost every single recipe in it!

  • malteser86  on  3/29/2014 at 6:27 PM

    Zucchini and seed muffins, served with natural Yogurt and honey! :)

  • michelle1009  on  3/29/2014 at 6:36 PM

    Would love to make a rich chocolate cake, without sugar, or wheat. But made with Almond, and coconut flour etc... Thank you..

  • jannic  on  3/29/2014 at 7:16 PM

    Fresh fruit with honey

  • Beckiemas  on  3/29/2014 at 9:56 PM

    Tempted to say fresh fruit... But actually I love having a small serving, infrequently, of a very rich dessert. Sweet things I am trying to get out of my daily life so that they are genuinely a treat. If it's not regular, and not a total gorge session, there's nothing wrong with being rich and indulgent - I think!

  • Ordinaryblogger  on  3/29/2014 at 10:31 PM

    Chocolate dipped strawberries.

  • diannerh49  on  3/29/2014 at 11:07 PM

    Fresh seasonal fruit with plain Greek yogurt

  • paulabucharles  on  3/30/2014 at 12:35 AM

    Naturally sweetened mango basil sorbet. No sugar added. Just make sure to use a ripe, sweet mango. I usually freeze all the flesh and have it all portioned ready to go whenever I feel like having a refreshing light dessert. In a blender, I just blend the frozen fruit with a little water and fresh basil leaves. Done!

  • Clove  on  3/30/2014 at 1:08 AM

    Roasted apricots with Greek yoghurt mixed with honey and cinnamon.

  • JanScholl  on  3/30/2014 at 1:09 AM

    I think I avoid desserts because they always make me feel like a slug. If you can make me a carrot cake that won't expand my butt, then you are my friend.

  • Rina63  on  3/30/2014 at 4:48 AM

    Angel Food Cake with Fresh Berry Compote (and a tiny bit of whipped cream!)

    Roasted seasonal fruits drizzled with fresh honey with a little fresh yoghurt....what is not eaten for dessert can be whizzed up for a smoothie the next day or made into a roasted fruit sorbet

    Greek yoghurt with honey from my own bees, fresh plums, peaches, grapes, figs or berries in season, picked fully ripe from my orchard. Supermarket fruit is horrible in comparison!
