Mixed Berries with Grand Marnier & Yogurt





Simple, healthy and delicious, fresh berries with a dollop of tick and creamy Greek Yogurt is a fast and easy dessert that with some walnuts, pecans and pumpkin seeds, also makes a nutritious breakfast. Berries are antioxidant and vitamin powerhouses with important phytochemicals that can cross the blood-brain barrier and enter the areas of brain responsible for learning and memory. Raspberries are also a rich source of Vitamin C and like blueberries, are super anti-aging foods in just about every category. Tossed with a splash of Grand Marnier and served with yogurt and a sprig of fresh basil, mixed berries become transformed into an elegant light and low fat berrylicious dessert, pretty enough to serve to company, and easy enough to throw together at the last minute.
