Berries n' Cream

Perfect Pairing:  Post holiday diet
IMG_9308-1

If your holidays were anything like mine you enjoyed some really great food and drinks over the season.  No wonder the gyms are so full on January 2!  I think after the holidays people actually look forward to hitting the reset button.  I know I do.  I think it kind of goes along with taking down the decorations and the Christmas tree.  Eating healthy and getting into a normal schedule just feels good.
This week I am going to post some healthy recipes that still taste great.  I will kick it off with one of my favorite go-to desserts, Berries n’ Cream.   The sauce is made from sour cream (fat free or reduced fat), brown sugar, vanilla, and Kahlua (optional) and is served over a combination of fresh berries.  The berries are tart and fresh and they pair so nicely with the sweet sauce.  Sour cream and brown sugar may seem odd but I urge you to give it a try.  One serving of the sauce (about six servings in a recipe) has only 50 calories.  That is why Berries n’ Cream is the Perfect Pairing with a post holiday diet!
