For many people, dessert is the best part of any meal. But even in these health-conscious times, it’s still possible to satisfy a sweet tooth with quick and easy confections. All it takes is some yogurt and fresh-cut fruit.
Yogurt is a terrific way to get vitamins, calcium and other nutrients in a smooth, creamy treat. It’s also an excellent accompaniment to fruit, complementing the natural sugars of pineapple or orange with a touch of tartness.
One yogurt product that’s perfect with fruit is Litehouse Yogurt Fruit Dip. It comes in three popular flavors: Vanilla (with all-natural flavor), Chocolate (made with real Hershey’s chocolate) and Strawberry (made with real strawberries). These delicious refrigerated dips are low in fat and contain no preservatives. They can be enjoyed throughout the day or in these simple dessert ideas that combine a variety of fresh seasonal fruit.
