If you're looking for a sweet-tooth satisfier with great nutritional benefits, try some seasonal fresh berries.
Fresh Raspberry Sauce

This delicious, no-cook berry sauce is amazingly versatile, and tastes delicious on everything from ice cream to waffles. So tuck in, knowing that you're doing your body a delicious favor.
Blueberry Angel Food Cake
Speaking of antioxidants, a mere half-cup of berries contains as many as five servings of peas, carrots, apples, and broccoli, which wouldn't be nearly as tasty with your coffee as this sweet, fluffy cake.
Triple Berry Freeze
It's a combination of raspberries, blueberries, and blackberries that give this drink its rich flavor and deep, enticing color.
Cool Summer-Berry Soup
Raspberries, like the ones packed in this cool summer soup, are particularly rich in ellagic acid, a chemical that may help fight cancer.
Blueberry Bread Puddings with Lemon Curd
Blueberries and cranberries contain Resveratrol which may protect against cardiovascular disease and fight tumor promotion and progression.
Apple-Cranberry Walnut Crisp
In addition to heart-healthy antioxidants, cranberries have a high vitamin C content.
Fresh Strawberry Pie
Strawberries, like the ones spilling out of this luscious pie, are an excellent source of potassium and fiber.
It may be the blue in blueberries that makes them such nutritional powerhouses. Anthocyanins, which give the berry its pleasing hue, are phytochemicals, which may combat the free-radical damage linked to cancer and heart disease.
