While many communities in northern India eat vegetarian food during this auspicious time, several states such as West Bengal are known for their non-vegetarian delicacies. However, dessert cravings are universal. As such, take a look at some delicious types of fruit pies, puddings, and smoothie recipes.
- Yellow tropical smoothie
Made with the goodness of papaya, mango, milk, almond flakes, coconut milk, pineapple chunks and a few sprigs of fresh mint; this fresh, tropical-tasting smoothie is packed with the goodness of vitamin C, antioxidants, fiber, and several other healthy ingredients. All you have to do is mix all the ingredients with ice in a blender, pour and enjoy.
- Yogurt and pomegranate tartlets
Rather than using high-calorie whipped cream or condensed milk, adding suspended curd or Greek yogurt to a freshly baked cup of pie is a much healthier option. For extra flavor, add pomegranate seeds, apples and a touch of honey for a hint of sweetness. Ideally, the pies should be made with wholemeal or multigrain flour.
- Watermelon slush
To make a healthy version of a watermelon slushie, you’ll need a few easy-to-obtain ingredients. They include a few seeded pieces of watermelon, cranberries, blueberries, passion fruit (optional), a touch of honey and a sprig of mint.
