Almond-Honey-Dessert-MainPhotoWho doesn’t love fresh fruit for dessert in the summertime, right? Whether it’s slices of watermelon or berries picked fresh from the garden, fruit is the healthy dessert. The only downside is that it can get old and boring. Plain old fruit quickly becomes dull to kids and adults alike, and there’s only so many times you can pile it on a skewer and call it something special, you know?

For generations past, fruit-as-dessert was turned up a notch with sugar and spice. We like the idea of adding both a sweet and spicy element to a standard fruity dessert to make it more interesting and delicious, which is where this TAJÍN recipe comes in. In just a few short steps TAJÍN takes this healthy dessert from zero to sixty on the taste scale. What we love about the Almond Honey Guilt-Free Dessert is that it adds a nutritious element as well with sliced almonds and honey instead of granulated sugar.

This chilled melon dessert makes a great addition to a summer potluck or dinner party, but we have to confess that we’ve enjoyed it all by ourselves on the patio after the kids go to bed. It’s just the right amount of sweet and spice, and it’s definitely guilt-free!.
