We rarely have dessert. Occasionally we go to Sweet Frog for frozen yogurt and sometimes I layer vanilla Greek yogurt, macerated fruit, granola and local honey for a little treat. Sometimes I put a couple of spoonfuls of dark and milk chocolate chips, peanut butter and honey in a little glass ramekin and microwave it for 30 seconds to melt them together.

GG, I know that dessert as yogourt paradiso. We never thought of macerating the fruit or nuking it.

We can't eat a lot of sweet stuff (which hurts with me being a baker and all), but during the summer I keep an endless fruit salad going all the time. It changes from week to week as the fruits come in and out of season, but it is always delicious and healthy. We do add some ice cream (homemade or bought) once in awhile and I do make TB some gluten free treats as well.

That's two different desserts - the layered yogurt one and the chocolate-peanut butter one

Well, it's the one with yogourt that was an almost standard "hippy dessert", called yogourt paradiso.

Peanut butter and chocolate didn't sound wrong.

I have a spare bedroom. Just not the weekend of the 1st of September. My sister is, hopefully, coming to visit.

GG, you might be having that yogurt for dessert, but I like it for breakfast or lunch: fresh fruit in small chunks mixed into plain Greek yogurt. Himself saw me having some yesterday afternoon and asked why I didn't just by the already-fruited ones like I would before on occasion. I told him because 1) I always have plain to use like sour cream, and 2) adding my own fresh fruits keeps the carb count way down.


LP, who said fruit isn't dessert? It doesn't have to be a brownie or cake. Fruit is good. Heck, cheese makes a good dessert.


taxy, peanut butter and chocolate NEVER sound wrong!


I had some fresh cherries with a few discs of melting chocolate (Merkens works in a pinch). Chasing them down with a bit of Merlot wine. There is something about berries, chocolate and the right red wine that makes my taste buds happy.
