We all want to be healthy, but we also want to eat dessert. Luckily, you don't have to give up a sweet treat when you're trying to do what's right for your body. Here are some tasty lazy girl desserts that are easy to make and delicious to eat.
1. Roasted Strawberries
4 tbsp Sugar
1 lb Fresh strawberries
Toss the strawberries with the sugar and bake them at 400 for 15 to 20 minutes. Make sure you use a baking dish and not a baking sheet. The strawberries will release juices. Pour over ice cream for a delicious dessert.
2. Frozen Chocolate Covered Banana
½ cup chocolate chips
Peel the bananas and cut them in half. Insert a wooden skewer into the cut end of each of the bananas. Lay the bananas on parchment and freeze for four to five hours, or until solid. Melt the chocolate chips, making sure not to burn them. Dip the bananas in the chocolate, working quickly. Sprinkle the bananas with sprinkles and freeze until the chocolate is set.
3. Broiled Grapefruit
1 tbsp shredded coconut
½ tsp honey
½ large grapefruit
Preheat the broiler and place the rack on the top rung. Slice around the flesh of the grapefruit to loosen it up. Slice down the segments of the grapefruit. This will make things easier when it comes to eating. Set the grapefruit on a baking pan and top with the honey. Broil for three to five minutes, or until it browns. Top with the coconut and enjoy.
