It’s a very simple recipe and inexpensive to make.

You need just three ingredients:  unsweetened applesauce, frozen blueberries and cinnamon.

Here’s what you do:

1/2 cup of unsweetened applesauce.

1/2 cup to 1 cup of frozen blueberries. Unsweetened, of course!

Mix them together. Sprinkle cinnamon on top. This is what gives it an added boost of sweetness.

I use frozen blueberries because it makes it seem like I’m eating a sorbet. And they are crunchy.  Because of this they are more filling than fresh or cooked blueberries. Of course, if you like strawberries or blackberries, you are welcome to substitute blueberries for the berries of your choice. Just remember that all the berries should be frozen. That’s the key. It’s just more filling than fresh or cooked berries. I know that some of you will think fresh is always better than frozen. But fresh berries won’t fill you up. I buy the ones grown without pesticides.

Diet Dessert Variations

You might experiment with different brands of applesauce. They all taste a little different. If you don’t like applesauce you can use cut up fresh peaches or pears, depending on the season. In the winter you might even try putting pumpkin pie spice instead of cinnamon.

If you want to double up on the berries or the applesauce, that’s okay. This is not about counting exact measurements or even calories. The main thing is to fill yourself up and not feel deprived because you aren’t eating anything with added sugar.

After dinner, relax. Drink some water with lemon, or in the winter make yourself a cup of herbal tea.
