Blog or Bust #2: “Healthy” Summer Desserts

Summer is the best time of year for a healthy dessert—you have an abundance of juicy fruits and there’s a need (and desire) to keep dishes light in the sweltering summer heat. I’ve seen a lot of blog events calling on ice-cream recipes, but since I don’t have an ice-cream maker, and since most ice-creams are bad for those tiny weenie bikinis, I’m calling on all summer desserts. They can be as simple as grilled peaches or as elaborate as your imagination can take you! And of course, ice-cream is allowed—but try and keep it as healthy as possible!

Here’s the details:

  • Post a healthy recipe on your blog (or email me a recipe if you don’t have a blog) before August 18th. Don’t worry if it’s not the healthiest thing ever—the most important aspect is that you won’t feel you’ll bust the scale when you eat it! We’re talking guilt-free deliciousness here!
  • Mention Blog or Bust in the post and add a link back here.
  • Email me the link to your post at
  • Check back at August 18th to see your post!!

  1. I’ll be watching this VERY closely–usually the combination of “healthy” and “desserts” has me running for the hills, but the foodie world has shown me any combo can work!

  2. BTW the fig cookies turned out very flaky… if you make the recipe add a lot more flour and really flour your rolling pin and board!!! Good luck, they’re tasty!
