You have about 24 hours to get your Valentine’s Day menu together and if you’re still in a pickle over what to prepare, here are some of my favorite Valentine’s foods both from my kitchen and from some of my favorite places around the web. In case you missed it last week, be sure to check out my Valentine’s Day Breakfast in Bed Menu featuring a Passion Fruit Mimosa, Baked Blueberry French Toast and Brown Sugar & Spice Bacon. If you’re searching for a quick, sweet treat to share try White Chocolate & Mascarpone-Stuffed Strawberries.
If you’re looking for a sweet treat on the lighter side, Whole Foods has two simple diet-friendly recipes to share:
Banana Nice Cream – Easy as 1-2-3, this creamy, sweet and cool snack or dessert proves that added sugar and oil are not always necessary to satisfy your cravings.
Cocoa-Oat Truffles – Combine cocoa, oats, dates, almond butter and spices to make these naturally sweet treats with no extracted oils or refined sweeteners.
Stop by the PBS Kitchen Explorers website for lots of healthy and fun Valentine’s Day recipes. I can’t wait to try my friend Aviva’s recipe for Fresh Raspberry Sauce drizzled over a light, airy pound cake.
What’s your go-to recipe for Valentine’s Day?
