1. Chocolate Chāi Mousse with Berries

This Chocolate Chāi Mousse with Berries by Sheil Shukla is subtly spiced with chāi flavors. The ground tea leaves give it a slightly astringent and bitter taste that contrasts well with sweet berries. This is best when fresh berries are at their summertime peak. The creaminess comes from silken tofu, available in vacuum-packed containers in the Asian or dairy aisles of many supermarkets. Not only is this dessert delicious, but it’s also nutritious! Dark chocolate and berries are rich in antioxidants. Berries have anti-cancer properties, and dark chocolate plays a role in heart health, too.

These Peanut Butter and Jam Brownies by Luce Hosier are a match made in heaven. Not only do they bake in half the time of a standard brownie, but the ratio of PB and J to brownie is almost equal, meaning every mouthful is packed with chocolatey gooeyness. You could even swap the peanut butter for almond butter—just make sure it’s smooth and runny so you can make the pretty swirls.

It’s berry season and that means it’s time to make crumbles, tarts, and pies. This Berry Crumble by Julie Zimmer is 100% vegan, gluten-free, and the perfect balance of sweet and tart, tender and crisp. It’s worth making for three reasons: it’s healthy; it’s delicious and it’s easier to make than an elegant pie. In this recipe, the filling has a mix of blueberries and raspberries, but you can use any type of seasonal fresh or frozen berries or stone fruit such as peaches, cherries, or plums.

What’s fab about this Honeydew Sorbet With Lime and Mint by Gabrielle St. Claire, is everything! Like most sorbets, it packs minimal ingredients, is quick, easy, affordable, perf for summer, and great for entertaining, you can skip the agave if you like, and you can add in coconut cream to make ice cream, but no matter what you do with this combo, you’re going to love this flavor combo!!
