This dessert is so easy fresh and delicious that it really makes my day. After lunch or dinner I always crave something sweet that will give closure to my meal and make me sigh in deep satisfaction.
There seem to be different reasons for this sweet craving, most articles agree that it’s a combination of habits and the chemistry of our bodies. Refined sugars are certainly not good for us, empty calories and addictive. So what I’m trying to do often is find alternative that are a bit healthier but still satisfy my needs. Gradually, I hope to adjust my habits and need less sugar, salt and fat to enjoy my food. Rome wasn’t built in a day so I also don’t expect to change my needs and habits in a day.
Even though this is a really simple recipe, I think it’s good to put it out there precisely because of how easy it is to make. There are many variations to it, it depends on the fruit and biscuit that you choose. Nowadays we have access to almost any fruit every single day of the year. I try to follow the fruit seasonal calendar as much as possible, although this is tough sometimes, to be honest. If you did a bit of research on this you would find different versions of this calendar, but in general terms they all tend to agree.
I follow the Western-European calendars as I am usually in Dublin or Barcelona, for the most part. July and August seem to be the best months to eat fresh organic fruit in this part of the world. I’ve recently had big time cravings for raspberries, peach and juicy apples and my recently discovered biscuit obsession is Belvita Honey & Nuts. Adding some sweetness is also an option, I normally go for agave syrup or homemade honey, but depends on how ripe and sweet the fruit already is.
Needless to say, this dish makes for a terrific breakfast or “merienda” (snack) too!
