Dr. Jean Piper’s Low-Sugar Dessert Recipe

People love recipes.

People love dessert - especially kids!

In spite of it being great for business - we don’t want you rotting your teeth.  Given children's teeth are more vulnerable to cavities now more than ever they have much more sugar in their diets at an early age compared to past generations), they need healthy desserts.

Strawberries are now in season & Madison's Hilldale Farmer's Market is in full swing.

Win - Win!

Please enjoy one of my all-time favorite kid-friendly desserts!
