People always think that bariatric surgery or any weight loss comes with a healthy dose of deprivation. I’ve heard many people tell me they could NEVER live without chocolate, ice cream, or any other loving comfort food around. The way I’ve countered this is to invite people into my world and show them that there is flavor and satisfaction in healthy eating. Food that not only tastes good but makes you FEEL good after.
Here’s an original from my own test kitchen. As with most bariatric friendly desserts PORTION SIZE is everything. Be sure that you are far enough in your journey to have this occasional treat which is also excellent to take to a summer party!
