“A table, a chair, a bowl of fruit and a violin; what else does a man need to be happy?” – Albert Einstein
It’s always difficult to come up with a dessert that everyone in my family can eat considering everyone’s health issues. It makes me feel really guilty to walk in to the living room with a cake while words like hypertension, cholestrol, pre-diabetic are being thrown around. This has to be the healthiest desserts possible and despite this virtue it really is quite satisfying. Try it when you want to spare yourself some guilt. It doesn’t hurt that it takes just about 10 minutes to put together.
What you’ll need:

3-4 cups of assorted fruit (chopped)
200 ml fresh cream or greek yoghurt
4-5 tablespoons honey
2 teaspoon cinnamon powder

How to:

1. Wash and clean your fruit, chop into even sized portions and fill into 6 – 8 bowls. Pop in the refrigerator.

2. In a blender or with a whisk, mix together the fresh cream, honey and cinnamon till nice and fluffy.

Note: Make sure the cinnamon powder is really fine and that it’s not going to show up as little lumps in your cream.

3. Pour even portions of cream mixture on to your bowls of fruit. Drizzle with more honey on top. Serve.

Footnotes:

The only difficult thing about this recipe is your choice of fruit. Try to pick fruits which are firm and which will hold their own flavor (without releasing juice) and not turn the whole mixture goopy or sticky. I would recommend apples, pears, strawberries, grapes and maybe bananas (if nice and firm). Also consider any other berries, slices of orange but then pop them in whole, cutting them will make them fall apart in the mixture.
