Easy ways to use fruit for your dessert
These are some of the easiest ways to use fruit for your desserts. Take just pieces of your favorite fruit, put one piece in a glass add aerated whipped cream on it and then top it with the second piece of the fruit. Simple! Take a few slices of pineapple and grill them for a couple of minutes. After grilling, remove them, cut them into suitable pieces and pour balsamic vinegar on it and your dessert is ready.
Take three or four bananas and cut them in to 1” thick pieces, keep them in the freezer for some 3 to 4 hours. Now add these frozen pieces in to the food processor and puree the bananas. You can serve it like this or add peanut butter in the food processor along with the bananas, puree the mixture and then serve it fresh or put in the freezer to consume later.

A balance of taste and health
Like we mentioned earlier, we not only make our desserts delicious, but also healthier by adding fruit. Diseases of the heart and cancer are associated with the free radicals, which are produced as a result of oxidation in our body. The antioxidants found in fruits counter these free radicals and give us health benefits.
Fiber, vitamins and minerals play their role in boosting the immunity of our body and help us maintain a healthy lifestyle. You can replace your non-healthy, sugary desserts with a tasty and healthy fruit dessert.
