Berry Healthy Desserts

Summer is the perfect time to savor delicious [tag]berry desserts[/tag]. In Australia, the berries are in season. This means you can find strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, and blackberries in abundance and at lower price :)

I always love seasons like this because I can enjoy my berries to the fullest. Not only these little fruit with vibrant colour is tasty but they are also highly packed with anti-oxidant. Antioxidants are vital to our health as it helps to neutralize free radicals in our bodies and may slow processes associated with aging.

Nutritionists recommend that we consume around 5,000 ORAC units per day to significantly impact antioxidant activity in the body and reduce free radical damage but in reality, many people struggle to eat the recommended amount.

I reckon the easiest way to consume your antioxidants is through delicious desserts. This is because everyone loves dessert and sweet-mouth-watering-super-good-tasty desserts are too hard to resists.

One of my favorite desserts is this deliciously simple Berry Dessert recipes:
