With so many mouthwatering, yet fattening, options out there like cake and ice cream, it can be a refreshing change to try some delicious desserts with fruit. Not only will you get your much-needed serving of natural sugar from the fruit, it’s a lot healthier too and luckily there are so many choices!

5. Mango Mousse
Mango mousse is a delicious and easy dessert to make that will look incredibly fancy to your guests.

Once the whipped cream is ready, pour in the puree slowly and keep mixing to get a fluffy texture. Pour the mousse into several cups and top with either chunks of mango or even blueberries for a delicious dessert you’ll be addicted to!
