Ecology Cooking: Healthy, Refreshing Dessert

Green Grapes for Dessert?  Yes!

I don’t know where this idea came from.  I’ve successfully served it for over 25 years.  Oops, dating myself 🙂

It’s so simple that you’ll probably just stop reading and dismiss the idea.  TRUST ME.  Try it and prepare to be amazing as you share it with friends.

The basic recipe from long ago:

  • Green Grapes, sliced in half (I like lengthwise)
  • Sour Cream
  • Cinnamon

Yep, that’s it.   Mix the sour cream and cinnamon and combine with sliced grapes.  Prepare at least one hour ahead and serve only slightly chilled.

You don’t need much of the sour cream mixture – just enough to lightly coat the grapes.  The cinnamon is to taste.  Did you know that cinnamon is HEALTHY?

This is a great picnic side dish or a wonderful intermezzo or even (and maybe especially) a wonderfully light and healthy dessert.

Variations:  I’ve tried light sour cream and I’ve tried 1/2 sour cream and 1/2 non-fat yogurt.    I’ve even tried just non-fat yogurt, but think there’s something in the flavor of sour cream that works well with the grapes.

Bon Appetite!
