Are you looking for a healthy dessert idea?
January is the month that sees the most people starting new weight loss plans with New Year’s resolutions to shed a few pounds before even February comes around. It makes sense, it’s a time to refocus, reprioritize and get back on track after December’s festivities.
Many people give up sweets and treats, maybe after over indulging over the holiday season. But what happens if you want to serve dessert to guests who are coming over for dinner, you have something to celebrate or you simply need to satisfy that sweet craving.
We have a healthy Italian dessert idea to share with you that won’t jeopardize your weight loss goals and will also give you some nutritional benefit.
Have you tried Papa Vince’s balsamic glaze that we introduced to the US market in 2018? It is a smooth reduction of our signature moscato vinegar, made with Catarrato, Inzolia and Moscatello grapes, all locally grown in Sicily, Italy and aged in wooden barrels for 8 years.
Like all of Papa’s Vince’s products, the balsamic glaze contains all natural ingredients, it is free from coloring or thickening agents. There are no artificial sweeteners, it is simply sweetened with royal jelly which is known for its nutritional benefits and disease fighting properties due to its high amounts of essential vitamins and minerals.
The result is true perfection, a dark, luscious condiment that can be drizzled on meats, cheeses, salads and vegetables for that perfect finishing touch and burst of flavor! Look out for hints of fig, raspberry, cherry and red wine.
We love to serve Papa Vince’s balsamic glaze as a dessert for our guests. Simply serve it drizzled on top of berries, it only takes a few minutes to prepare and your guests will love it too. If you’re not too concerned about calories then use vanilla ice cream or plain Greek yogurt as your base. The tartness of the balsamic glaze mingles with the creaminess of the ice cream and the combination of the sweet and sour is simply divine!
Beautiful colors and inviting flavors will make this hearty side dish a keeper in your recipe box.
This is an easy side dish that makes good use of summer squash and fresh bell peppers.
