This summer dessert with berries in a glass is super quick to prepare and a refreshing dessert. Not only is it quick to make, but it’s also a cooling and healthy refreshment on hot summer days. The light cream is made of coconut yogurt with a hint of cardamom sweetened with some applesauce. Cardamom adds an exotic touch to our summer dessert and also brings numerous health benefits. Cardamom is a precious spice, which is especially popular in India. There, the plant is called the queen of spices. Cardamom belongs to the ginger family and is a perennial plant. The processing and harvesting of the valuable plant is very laborious. The green fruit capsules of the plant contain the particularly valuable seed.
Did you know that blueberries are full of valuable ingredients? The blue fruits contain plenty of vitamins C and E, which are antioxidants and strengthen your immune system. The blueberry gets its bluish-purple color from the so-called anthocyanins. These plant pigments have strong antioxidant properties and can counteract aging processes as well as be anti-inflammatory. From the end of June to the end of September, this superfood is in season. That means you can enjoy seasonal blueberries all summer long. And if you’re ever in the mood for a vegan summer dessert in the winter, we recommend that you freeze a supply of fresh blueberries during the summer.
Complement this fine dessert with some homemade crunchy muesli. You can find the recipe in our recipe collection.
