Sweet Things 2

There's no denying we all have a sweet tooth, but as we age and our A1c levels often tend to climb, lowering our refined sugar consumption makes a lot of sense. But what about our sweet tooth? Who wants to give up dessert? The first season of Food Over 50 brought us several delicious dessert options with zero refined sugar in David's initial 'Sweet Things' episode. Season 2 is back with a second helping of healthier and more nutritious desserts in the episode 'Sweet Things 2.' Did you know that pears are high in fiber? So what could be better than fresh whole pears perfectly poached in hearty red wine and exotic spices to bring out their natural sweetness? David also places a ripe medley of peaches, nectarines and plums on the grill grates to concentrate and caramelize their natural fruit sugars. He plates the Grilled Stone Fruit with a modest but decadent smear of Greek yogurt and the tiniest drizzle of honey! And for a light and lovely pudding with just a hint of tropical sweetness, how about Mango Whip
