Time for a Quickie - Lilly’s Quick & Healthy Dessert

I had such a sweet tooth yesterday; I could kill for a piece of candy. Trying to eat healthier resulted to no sweets in the house and I was literally searching for loose candy in all corners of my pantry.

The alternative was to grab some fruit, but another banana would have so not hit the spot. Baking was out of the question too. I wanted something sweet and I wanted it NOW. Besides, I had no time for that.
Then it hit me! My best friend Lilly’s quick and healthy dessert! I had just enough time for this quickie! I know, on the end, I ended up eating that banana, but in a much “funner” way. My sweet tooth was satisfied AND it was a healthy choice.


Thank you, Lilly, for this recipe! Lilly has many talents, from painting to photography. If you’d like to know how we met, then lost each other for ten long years and reconnected again, read our short story I wrote three years ago here.

 

Ingredients:
Serves 4

4 Bananas (ripe but not overripe)
32 oz. Vanilla Yogurt
1 tablespoon Lemon Juice
2 tablespoons Sugar or Honey (optional)
2 cups chopped fresh Fruit (strawberries, blueberries, raspberries…)
Whipped Cream (optional)

 

Directions:

In a medium bowl, mash bananas with a fork. Add lemon juice and sugar or honey. Ripe bananas are naturally sweeter, so you can omit sweeteners altogether. I wouldn’t use overripe bananas for this dessert because their dark color is not appetizing. Mix in yogurt.

Cover the bottom of 4 serving dishes with ½ cup chopped fruit. Pour two cups of banana yogurt mixture over the fruit. Top each with another ½ cup chopped fruit. Serve topped with whipped cream if desired. Enjoy!

    I had to laugh when you said you searched every cranny for something sweet because I can relate! 🙂 Thanks for sharing this delicious AND healthy (and gorgeous!) dessert on TALENTED TUESDAY link party. If you were to use over ripe bananas, besides the color being not as pretty, did you notice a change in taste? Too banana over powering?

      No, if you like a strong banana flavor. It is much sweeter though 🙂
