This ice is fashioned after the Bellini, a peach and white Italian wine sparkler. The tart white grape juice paired with ripe sweet peaches create a fantastic flavor combination. Looking for a refreshing summer dessert? Place some fresh peach slices in a large wine goblet, top with Bellini ice, and garnish with a kiwi slice. ‐Deirdre Cox, Kansas City, Missouri
Betty May of Topeka, Kansas shares her recipe for a “dessert that is so simple but chock-full of refreshing pineapple and coconut flavor. A nice light treat after a big meal with make-ahead convenience for busy hostesses.”
“I love this recipe because it’s easy, low-fat, versatile and delicious! The crispy topping is flavored with graham cracker crumbs, cinnamon and almonds and doesn’t taste light at all. Great with frozen yogurt or whipped topping.” —Janet Elrod, Newnan, Georgia
I absolutely love peanut butter and peanut butter pie is one of my favorites. But I'm a Registered Dietitian, so I knew just how high my original recipe was in fat and calories. I cut down on several critical things, and the resulting pie is great! —Lisa Varner, Charleston, South Carolina
"When I was on a low-fat diet, I couldn't bear the thought of celebrating Thanksgiving without my favorite pumpkin pie," explains Fort Wayne, Indiana's Mary Alice Dick. "So I altered the ingredients and created this thick pudding instead. Now I can enjoy the dessert throughout the year."
This attractive fruit pie from Judy Watson in Newmarket, Ontario is almost too pretty to eat, but no one will be able to resist the juicy whole strawberries and delightfully sweet glaze that fill the tender pie crust.
I have wonderful memories of eating Bananas Foster in New Orleans, and as a dietitian, wanted to find a healthier version. I combined the best of two recipes and added my own tweaks to create this Southern treat. —Lisa Varner, Charleston, South Carolina
