    Last month we featured a multitude of recipes that are great for your holiday parties. This month, we wanted to give you some great dessert options for any festivity you run into! Because desserts are abundant and basically unavoidable, you’ll want to perhaps prepare and bring your own desserts that are healthier than the standard fare and just as enjoyable.

  • Cook’s Corner: Healthy Holidays

    You’ve been here before. Extended trip to the family’s for the holidays. At least two sit-down meals and a table filled with more desserts than you can feed yourself. By the time the trip is said and done, you’ve probably consumed more than several thousand calories… and none of them in the “healthy” department.

    [title]
    Makes: 2 servings

    2 cups unsweetened calcium-fortified soy milk

    1 tablespoon rice flour

    1 tablespoon cornstarch

    1/4 cup sugar

    1/4 teaspoon vanilla essence

    Cinnamon powder

    In a small bowl, mix about 1/2 cup of soy milk with rice flour and cornstarch. Stir well to keep lumps from forming. Set aside. In a nonstick pan, boil the rest of the soy milk on medium heat. Add sugar and stir. Gradually stir in the soy milk, rice flour, and cornstarch mixture and add the vanilla essence. Reduce heat to low. Continue stirring until the soy milk mixture thickens. Remove from heat and let it cool. Pour into individual dessert glasses and chill in a refrigerator for about five hours. The mixture will thicken in the refrigerator. Sprinkle cinnamon powder just before serving. Recipe courtesy of Lauren Ho and photo courtesy of Joyotee
