Disclosure: Thank you Simple & Crisp for stocking my pantry with colorful, healthy treats! I am grateful for opportunities which allow me work with brands that I love. As always, all opinions expressed are 100% my own.
OK, here we are just one week into January and I’m all ready talking about desserts. Sorry. I know sweets are something that a lot of people are trying to avoid. But I’m a dessert kind of gal. Plain and simple.
You can take the girl out of the dessert, but you can’t take the dessert out of the girl.
But “dessert” doesn’t have to be a naughty word. I proclaim that we can totally indulge our sweet tooth without destroying our resolutions. Yes. Let’s do that.
Enter: Yogurt-Honey Panna Cotta. With no refined sugars, a little less fat and a little more protein, you can practically have this for breakfast. And in fact, I may have done that. Twice. Ok, three times. Real talk.
In addition to being a bit on the healthier side, these babies are perfectly portion controlled. We aren’t going to mindlessly inhale an entire box of cookies here. Nope. We are way to cool and collected for those kinds of shenanigans.
Also, individual sized desserts are totally cute and we all know that cute food just tastes better. That’s a fact.
But you know what panna cotta needs? Toppings. Lot’s of toppings. I’ve tried all kinds of combinations (= research), and my favorite so far is a drizzle of honey, some dark chocolate and a slice of Simple & Crisp Orange. Don’t miss the Simple & Crisp giveaway details below!
Simple & Crisp dried fruit crisps are one of the most versatile entertaining items that I keep in my kitchen. They add elegance and color to cheese platters. They dress up desserts. And they make beautiful garnishes for cocktails. With four amazing flavors, the pairing possibilities are endless. And of course, you can always eat them straight out of the box. Nothing wrong with that. Healthy snacking win!
