Macrobiotic Stewed Fruit Desert

Stewed fruit is a quick delicious desert that takes less than 10 minutes to make. It is naturally healthy, with no added sugar, and full of helpful nutrients. It is a great desert for children. You will enjoy this natural desert if you have sweet cravings.

NUTRITION

The fruit is rich in vitamins and minerals. Fruit is especially helpful for phyto nutrients that strengthen our immune system.

PH

The fruit, lemon and almonds in this desert will be alkaline forming and help us create a healthy alkaline condition.

CHI ENERGY

In terms of chi, stewed fruit is more yin and relaxing. However cooking the fruit and serving hot creates a temporary yang effect, making it desirable during the autumn and during the winter. The sweet, settling nature of this desert suggests it has more earth chi in terms of the five elements.

INGREDIENTS TO MAKE STEWED FRUIT DESERT

Stewed Fruit

Choose fruit for stewing. I like to choose from apples, pears, plums, apricots and peaches. You could use two items of fruit per person.

Chop the fruit into chunks.

Simmer in about 1cm or 1/2" of water.

Add 1 tbsp of raisins for a sweeter taste.

Simmer for about 5 minutes with a lid over.

Nuts

Dry roast about a 1/4 cup of almonds or hazelnuts per person, until a light brown.

Preparation

Simmer the fruit and raisins in about 1cm or 1/2 inch of water with a lid on for 5 to 10 minutes.

Turn off heat and mix in vanilla and lemon as desired.

Serve into desert bowls. Add the roasted nuts and sprinkle cinnamon over.

BEING CREATIVE

You can decorate with mint leaves, slices of strawberries, raspberries, blueberries, grated orange or lemon rind. You can alter the taste with grated ginger, honey, maple syrup, nutmeg and other dried fruits. You can also pour the fruit over broken sugar free organic biscuits to create a more filling desert.

Simon can help you with macrobiotic cooking classes so you can learn new skills and ways to create your own macrobiotic diet.

Consider a macrobiotic consultation with Simon if you wish to change to a more healthy, natural style of eating. These can be on-line or in person.
