Here are five simple dessert recipes for the holidays, which you may create with just about any combination of flavors. With the holidays coming up, you may want to cut back on your sugar consumption while still making your desserts taste great. If you are like many people out there, then you’re probably trying to determine what you can eat and still have yummy desserts. Bearing this in mind, these recipes for desserts utilizing ice cream are certain to get your creative juices flowing. Whether it’s chocolate, banana pudding, or fruit-flavored ice cream, then here are some recipes to try:
Low Sodium Chocolate Eclairs with Coconut Cream. While the holidays are always a fantastic excuse to add the sugar rush into your diet, you or a loved one may be wanting to cut down on their sodium intake as well. These low-sodium chocolate eclairs really can pack a while, especially when paired with some fresh, cold coconut cream. The recipes for these dessert treats just take around 15 minutes or so and will give you many hours of enjoyment from them. Since these chocolate eclairs do not usually contain any additional sweeteners, it is a fantastic idea to keep a tab on the ingredients listing on the back of the box so that you’ll know just what you’re putting to the mixture.
Chocolate-Covered Strawberries. Some chocolate lovers might be put off with the possibility of baking these berries, but these are really quite simple to prepare. Simply mix all the ingredients together, set them onto a plate, and then bake them in the oven. If you’re worried about the quality of the chocolate, keep in mind that these recipes usually call for lower quality chocolate than you’d find at the shop, and it will pay off in the end because the berries will have a greater quality than the ordinary dessert.
Chocolate-Covered Strawberries. It sounds bizarre, even for desserts, but chocolate-covered strawberries are one of the best things I’ve ever had in a dessert. All you need to do is melt some chocolate on the berries and spread it evenly between two cups of smooth cake batter. Spread the batter equally, being sure to leave an air bubble in the center. Put the strawberries in the middle and simmer for approximately five minutes, or until they are plump and ready to serve. The chocolate will melt at the center, creating a tasty and trendy center to serve.
Chocolate-Covered Mint Eclairs. These chocolate eclairs start out the same way as the chocolate-covered strawberries, except that instead of melting chocolate, you’re melting a mint extract. To make this dessert, all you need is a vanilla ice cream, chocolate eclairs, sugar, milk, and lemon juice. Mix all of the ingredients together and pour into an ice cream casing, then freeze it, or wrap it in foil and store it till ready to serve.
Chocolate-Covered Strawberries and Whipped Cream. A cherry and a cherry are the classic ingredients which go together perfectly, and these yummy strawberry and strawberry cream eclairs are still an example of a dessert made out of this mix. First you’ll need a half cup of low fat cream cheese, three ounces of fresh strawberries, two to 3 whole pounds of frozen tomatoes three to four drops of peppermint extract. Combine all the ingredients in a sauce pan and heat on medium high until the cream begins to thicken, approximately two minutes.
