Summers in the U.S. often consist of sampling delicious desserts on the porch under the stars.
To Celebrate Americana, we would like to share a few desserts we consider quintessentially Americana. These desserts provide a delicious warm-weather treat while helping to facilitate a Great Night’s Sleep!
Woman’s Day® magazine suggests skipping the typical post-dinner dessert in order to partake of the following desserts about 30 minutes before bedtime. This is the ideal amount of time for serotonin to send you into dreamland!
Top ½ cup of Haagen-Dazs® Lemon Sorbet with ½ cup of dried cranberries
Top 1 small banana with 1 tablespoon of strawberry jam
Top 1 cup of cottage cheese with1 cup of sliced strawberries
1 pear sliced up in a bowl with 1 tablespoon of almond butter
Our favorite young New York Chef recently took a few minutes out of her busy schedule to share her preferred nighttime sweet snacks.
If fresh fruit does not satisfy your sweet tooth, try tossing fruit in olive oil and a bit of salt. This little bit of seasoning brings out the natural flavor of the fruit and won’t add to your pre-bedtime sugar intake. No wonder our favorite young New York Chef awakens well-rested and with the energy to get back into the kitchen.
Turn out the lights with fresh fruit and preserves harvested from the orchards of the upper Great Lakes, fields cross the heartland. and groves in the California Valley.
Eat smart during this celebration of Americana and get A Great Night’s Sleep, preferably on Down Etc. bedding!
