My Version of a Healthy Trifle

Please don't laugh , but I always assume that if dessert has fruit in it, it's healthy...... right?



Just like this one.....





And it's extra good for you if you combine at least 2 of the key food groups.... in this case dairy and fruit.



So in reality the only "unhealthy" ingredient in this trifle are the brownies that I cut up and layered on the bottom of my dish?

 
And topped with fresh strawberries that I mixed with a bit of Splenda and a little water.


And then added a ' kinda sorta I want to believe it's healthy' whipped cream that I made with heavy whipping cream ( 2 cups) and some powdered sugar ( 1 cup or to desired thickness) on top.


And to promote more good healthy eating, I added another layer on top and garnished with more strawberries.


Go ahead. Tell me that doesn't look healthy.......


I will make a believer out of you too!

PS- Tell me, do you have the same assumption about fruit? 



Grateful for~
The ability to work out after I eat "healthy" desserts like this

I think the new studies show the benefits of cocoa too, don't remember what it boosts, but as far as I'm concerned it should be a food group of its own anyway.

Yep!!...definitely healthy...chocolate...strawberries, and dairy for protein...and it is one gorgeous dessert!

And you're not so far off - adition of fruit making it healthy, or more healthy... or less non-healthy ;).

But you didn't need in this case - all good stuff: chocolate is good for your heart, diary is good for your bones, enough sugar to prevent the cravings... yep, HEALTHY!

An amazing looking dessert or treat. Happy inducing! See? Happy=Healthy :P

Thank you for sharing,
Teresa

You have all the necessary food groups covered there...well...actually, you forgot the wine. If we have the wine and this lovely trifle, we are good to go. Looks yummy!
