Berry Tarts, a bariatric friendly dessert
For those of you looking for something on the sweet side, we have put together these delicious and addictive berry tarts! Completely bite-size and absolutely scrumptious. They are low in sugar and a great option for a bariatric friendly dessert. Worrying about dumping is a common concern for a lot of bariatric patients. However, don’t let this concern overwhelm you into thinking you won’t be able to satisfy your sweet tooth cravings! You just need to find low sugar and sugar free sweet options.
This recipe is going to be enjoyable simply because it’s made in just two steps, saving you time and clean-up in the kitchen. Best of all, this recipe is very easy to customize. You can substitute different fruits and your preferred yogurt to make this recipe your own!
For bariatric patients, you won’t have to give up yogurt if you’ve had the gastric sleeve, gastric bypass, or gastric band. Yogurt is a great source to turn to when you need a little protein after weight loss surgery.
Our only tip for this recipe would be to make sure that you are selecting the right yogurt. Some yogurts are high in sugar, so you want to make sure that you are choosing a low to no sugar yogurt to prevent your body from dumping. For those who have cut dairy out of their diet, there are also dairy-free yogurts out there!
Aside from substituting out different yogurts, you can also choose what fruits you’d like to top your berry tarts off with! If you’re a fan of tarty flavors then you may want to stick with the raspberry and blueberry fruits, but if you’re looking to sweeten your berry tart up a bit more than a banana and strawberry would do the trick! The possibilities are pretty endless when it comes to customizing this simple recipe.
We hope you enjoy this recipe as much as our team did. This makes a fun dessert to take to this year’s 4th of July cookout for friends and family to enjoy!
