I love fruit. In fact, I eat fruit almost every day. I often have a banana for breakfast, an apple for a midmorning snack, and more fruit for dessert if I fancy something sweet after dinner. I’m often asked about the sugar in fruit – after all, I frequently write about the dangers of sugar. Isn’t eating so much fruit bad for you?
The answer is no. Natural sugars, like those found in fruit, are not harmful or fattening, and the vitamins, minerals, and fiber in fruit means it’s really very healthy.
In contrast, the refined sugars in processed foods and commercially-made sweets are very bad for you. Refined sugar does not contain anything healthy, and it’s designed to make you want to eat more and more. However, where you could probably eat several candy bars in one serving, one banana or apple are more than enough for most people.
This simple recipe is the perfect low-sugar dessert. Yes, fruit does contain sugar, but it’s natural sugar and no one ever got fat or unhealthy because of fruit. Refined high fructose corn syrup (HFCS) is a different matter altogether and is best avoided.
