Celebrate National Raspberry Tart Day and Peach Pie Day

Kids are already going back to school, which can only mean one thing: it’s the end of summer. So, let’s make time to celebrate the end of summer with two delicious recipes that feature fruit, the juicy staple of summer produce.

We’ll start with a raspberry tart, in honor of National Raspberry Tart Day on August 11. Did you know that raspberries are not only delicious, but are also low in calories and are a rich source of dietary fiber , antioxidants, iron, potassium and vitamins A and C? They are a truly remarkable fruit and very deserving of their own low-calorie dessert recipe.

This Rustic Berry Tart features raspberries and keeps the calories low by using Splenda (sucralose).  Recipe and image courtesy of Eating Well and Kitchen Daily.

And what summer would be complete without some delicious peach pie? August 24th is National Peach Pie Day and we’ve found the perfect low-calorie recipe for you to try: Peach Hand Pies with Truvía® Natural Sweetener. This recipe uses stevia in place of sugar and is the perfect serving size. One bite and you’ll feel the breeze in your hair as you sit in the swing on your grandmother’s porch.
