We’ve talked a little bit about resolutions and goals around here. I’ve mentioned that it’s my goal to stick to a sort-of tight food budget. So far so good. It’s amazing what a meal plan will do for your budget!
Something else that keeps our food expenses low is that we don’t buy desserts and such at the store. (Except ice cream, I Just don’t have any desire to make my own.)
This dessert is so easy to make, and so inexpensive!
But maybe your goals include cutting down on the amount of refined sugar you eat. If so, this recipe is for you. Even with no refined sugar, it’s delicious! (Of course you couldn’t use the ice-cream but it’s still yummy without it.)
And it’s a great dessert to keep on hand for those last-minute cravings or company. Go ahead and make up the topping and keep in in the freezer. When you need a dessert you’ve got the blueberries and the topping all ready to go. Just assemble and bake and you’ve got an amazing home-baked dessert.
