pannacotta
0

By Hubert Cormier, Nutritionist Panna cotta is a traditional cream-based dessert. The name is of Italian origin and means “cooked cream.” You can make this dessert lighter by including other dairy products, such as milk and Greek yogurt. As a result, you add precious protein to this delicious dessert. Since the first step involves softening the gelatin in a base of dairy products with a little sugar, it is very easy to flavour it and create a completely different dessert each time. I love chai spices, which are rich and fragrant, so I added some to flavour the panna cotta’s base. This dessert is served with a dash of honey, crushed pistachios and slices of fresh or poached pear.

Recipe created by Hubert Cormier, nutritionist: Yogurt freezes very well. However, due to its low fat content, it tends to become hard, unlike ice cream, which stays manageable and is very sweet. Why not take advantage of this consistency to make frozen yogurt bars? After a few hours in the freezer, simply break the bars into pieces. The flavour options are endless, and you can serve the bars for breakfast, for dessert or as a snack! They can quickly become addictive. What’s more, they’re so eye-catching that they’ll definitely steal the spotlight at your brunches. You can even serve them on a bed of ice cubes!

Berry and basil ice pops

Recipe created by Hubert Cormier, nutritionist: “Summer is just around the corner, and you know what that means: frozen treats! Whether it’s snack time or dessert time, it always feels good to cool off! The problem is, supermarket freezers tend to be full of products that contain a lot of sugar, which aren’t always good choices for your family. What’s the secret to a creamy, refreshing treat? Use Oikos plain Greek yogurt and condensed milk. This mix gives you the smoothness of ice cream but with less fat and more protein. Plus, it’s a great time to add in some berries from Quebec for that sweet touch. This version of the ice pop is more nutritious than products found at the supermarket and will please everyone!”

Tropical drink in a pineapple
0

Recipe created by Hubert Cormier, nutritionist: “Is the beautiful sunset evoking images of an exotic tropical getaway? Then make your time near the pool or at the beach even better with a refreshing drink. Don’t be shy to add tropical fruit such as pineapple, which is loaded with vitamins. To heighten the mood even more, serve this exotic drink in a hollowed-out pineapple. I love adding vegetables to my drinks to add freshness while reducing the energy density (i.e. the number of calories per gram of food consumed). With this drink, say goodbye to your thirst on those hot summer days. Have a great summer, everyone!”

Soy and basil pesto
0

Recipe created by Hubert Cormier, nutritionist: “You’re enjoying time by the pool, the drinks are flowing, and you’re out of ideas for a fun snack. What to do? Serve this pesto with your own personal touch. Your guests will love the taste and presentation of this bold version of a Mediterranean classic. To raise the protein and fibre content, I like to replace the pine nuts with roasted soybean seeds. Contrary to the nuts, they have twice more protein than fat, propelling them to the stars of the snack world!”
