Who grew up with stewed fruit for dessert? A healthier option is to steam them and drop the sugar - most fruit is after all sweet enough. Favorite combinations:
Apricots & apple
Apple & raspberries (only a small portion of raspberries needed)
Feijoa & Apple
Steamed sugar-free fruit is a fantastic evening dessert served hot or cold and if made in bulk can be a healthy addition to your breakfast to naturally sweeten cereal. Method Add chopped fruit to a saucepan with just a little water (about 2 tbsp). Heat gently and the initial steam from the water will release the juices from the fruit. Gently simmer so they're heated through and to the texture you prefer. Serve with a dollop of greek yoghurt, icecream (if you must) or a sprinkle of muesli.
