There is something about fresh seasonal fruit! That is a big reason that we love this bariatric dessert recipe. Made from fresh berries, it’s a light and fresh dessert option for life after weight loss surgery. Now, if you haven’t had much fresh fruit since surgery and you aren’t sure how your stomach will handle this recipe, take it slow. Some people have trouble with the sugars in fruit.
That being said, there are no added sugars in the bariatric dessert recipe. We used 3 different fruits, but you can do 1 type of berries or mix a few different types. We know that it may be hard to find 3 different kinds or fresh berries at different times of the year.
While there aren’t many ingredients in our Berry Italian Ice Recipe, there is a little bit of extra time during freezing to work it into the right consistency for Italian Ice. Other than that, it’s a super easy bariatric recipe, with just a few ingredients.
You can see that there are less than a handful of ingredients for this bariatric dessert recipe. Looking for more Dessert Recipes? Check out this link for more bariatric desserts.
