Sundae Supper

13 02 2014

IMG_3917We all want a memorable meal on Valentine’s Day, but circumstances don’t always comply with the ideal. Restaurants can be crowded, expensive, or inadequate for a family celebration. Maybe you’re homebound by situation or choice. What special dish can you serve for Valentine’s Day? Concoct a decadent sundae brimming with scrumptious ingredients.

I stunned my children when I first served a sundae meal. This traditionally balanced-meal mom got three wide-eyed stares before the cheering erupted. I serve those sundaes without guilt because the ingredients are healthy. You can include anything that suits your Valentines or that you already have on-hand. They’ll also have fun building their own sundaes. I’ll share a variation of what I include at times, even for a Valentine’s breakfast. These sundae ingredient ideas can be fat free and sugar free for a healthier twist.

Sundae Ingredient Ideas:

  • Frozen yogurt or ice cream
  • Bananas
  • Cherries
  • Strawberries
  • Raspberries
  • Blackberries
  • Chopped nuts
  • Peanut Butter or almond butter
  • Chocolate hazelnut spread
  • Chocolate syrup, caramel syrup, strawberry syrup
  • Cookie bits
  • Marshmallows
  • Chocolate chips, vanilla chips, butterscotch chips, or cinnamon chips
  • Fat Free whipped cream
  • Sprinkles
