Cinnamon Rice Pudding

Rice pudding is a world famous dessert and almost every culture has their version. I add coconut milk to mine for creaminess, but the core flavor of this pudding is vanilla. Even people who aren’t coconut fans still dig in.

Whole Wheat Crepes

If you can make pancakes, you can definitely make crepes! I know that they might seem fancy, but they are incredibly versatile and can be served with both savory and sweet fillings and store extremely well.

Chocolate Avocado Milkshake

Avocado in a milkshake might sound unusual, but in Vietnam it’s a traditional treat that you can order in local restaurants. Enjoy a creamy, rich shake while getting a serving of vegetables to boot!

Crock-Pot Baked Apples

This was an old stand-by in our family home on icy Pittsburgh winter nights when cold weather kept us indoors. This dessert has the same flavors as apple pie without the guilt of a fattening crust!

Grapefruit Cupcakes with Chai Icing

Grapefruit and buttermilk are both high in nutrition, but create a tender texture in baked goods. When I bake these for friends’ birthdays, no one guesses that they are made with grapefruit. Regardless, they disappear fast!

Irish Drop Cookies

I call these cookies ‘Irish’ because their green hue makes them perfect for St. Patty’s Day. Instead of using food coloring, I mix in anti-oxidant green tea powder that helps make these low-sugar cookies even healthier!

Grapefruit Bellini

This Bellini is rich in vitamin C with the addition of grapefruit juice. Nutmeg adds spicy sweetness to this peach-based drink. Find out more about the health benefits of grapefruit.

Rugelach

This classic cookie makes a festive Hanukkah treat or a sweet gift. It’s more than just a cookie, it has an extra dose of antioxidants from the prunes and chocolate. The wheat germ adds fiber to the flaky topping.
