(Family Features) This just in - the traditional sundae is sporting a new look this summer. You can create sophisticated desserts full of bold flavors in just minutes with new recipes and the help of innovative frozen products.
These zesty sundaes mix the tartness of frozen yogurt with the sweetness of fresh fruit. And if you're worried about over-indulging, frozen yogurt contains live and active probiotic cultures that add extra health benefits.
"Probiotics are live microorganisms which, when consumed in adequate quantities, benefit the human body. They are most commonly found in fermented dairy products like yogurt and can provide benefits such as improved digestive health," says John Kennedy, corporate chef for Blue Bunny.
Frozen yogurt has been around since the 1970s. In the '80s, its recipe was revamped to provide sweeter flavor and smoother texture, and today, prepackaged products such as Blue Bunny's All Natural Frozen Yogurt line deliver indulgent flavors using only natural ingredients.
To delight your family or guests with chef-made desserts created in your own kitchen, try mixing vanilla bean frozen yogurt with juicy fresh peaches, toasted nuts and warmed honey. Or take your taste buds on an island get-away with a Tropical Vacation Sundae.
