HOT BLACKBERRIES ON PEARS

HOT BLACKBERRIES ON PEARS

This meal is HOT. And I mean it. If you are looking for something to replace the highly desired chocolate infused desserts that will sabotage your six-pack struggles, this dessert is for you my Foodie Friend. Let’s get rolling Foodies!

WARM AND SQUASHED BLACKBERRIES ON A PAN
ADDING A LITTLE WATER CREATES A RICH FRUITY SAUCE

Ingredients

  • 1 fresh pear (cut in half, seeds removed)
  • 1/2 cup frozen or fresh blackberries (I used frozen)
  • 1/4 cup Greek yogurt
  • 1 scoop vanilla protein (optional but highly recommended)
  • a few good quality dark chocolate small pieces
YEP, IT'S A SMALL ESPRESSO IN THE BACKGROUND, GOES PERFECTLY WITH THIS DESSERT

Prep Instructions

  1. Wash pear well under fresh cold water. Cut in half and remove seeds. Set aside.
  2. Heat up a small sauce pan and place in it blackberries.
  3. Cook on medium-high for 5 minutes. When blackberries release juice, press each one with a fork to create a nice mashed blackberries consistency.
  4. Set temp to low and cook for 5 more min. You may want to add a slug of water to create more of the berries juice.
  5. In a small bowl mix well yogurt and protein (if using it) to remove any lumps.
  6. On a plate place the split into two pear, fill in with warm berries and protein yogurt.
  7. Sprinkle all with cinnamon and dark chocolate powder or chocolate chunks.

Nutrition Facts & Tips

Variations

Feel free to use different types of fruits. Focus on seasonal, fresh produce. Nothing is set in stone. What this dessert is trying to accomplish is to come out as colorful, naturally sweet and complete protein infused healthier version of a candy loaded with fats and sugars and no nutritional value.

 

Every time we eat we have an opportunity to build a better, stronger body with better performance in and outside of the gym. Whenever I create a dessert I am always thinking how to use this opportunity to create a tasty but still nutritious and valuable meal.

 

We can improve any meal by answering the following questions:

  1. Where is the protein in this meal?
  2. Where is the fat coming from?
  3. Does this meal include sugar and if so what is its source and how much of the total meal it constitutes?
  4. When am I going to this meal? Was active or rather passive before having this meal?

 

Try to apply these the next time you plan your meals. Such approach worked for me very well since I lost significant weight. Applying these simple criteria helped me to address my huge appetite for tasty and not only healthy meals with my personal fitness goals. If you love the way you eat you won’t have to diet again. This is so true and it is very easy to create such a meal plan that you will love.
