has come up with a great way to get your dessert without the guilt of eating unhealthy and heavy foods. Chef Michael Weinstein has created tortilla chips and fruit salsas to indulge your sweet tooth without loading up on all the fat and calories typically found in desserts.
The Dreadhead Chef tortillas come in two flavors, Cinnamon and Chocolate. They are lightly sweet to give you the flavor of dessert without the sugar load. They are a wonderful treat on their own and didn’t make it into the accompanying salsas. They were just too good to dip.
We had a little fun with the salsas instead. We put the tropical treat salsa Pineapple-Banana-Pecan Nut Salsa over chocolate ice cream for a wonderful topping. It added just the right amount of fruity decadence to the ice cream with only one gram of fat and 45 calories.
The Strawberry-Mango Fruit Salsa was a fantastic treat paired with crackers and cheddar cheese. The smooth savory flavor of the cheese brought out the bright flavors of strawberry and mangos. The Strawberry-Mango Salsa was ideal with no added fat and only 30 calories.
If you are looking to trim some fat and calories from your dessert offerings these are a must try treat that will please everyone in the family.
