Healthy Desserts: Ruby Surprise

Healthy Desserts: Ruby Surprise


  • 3 cups red grapes
  • 2 pints fresh raspberries (about 3 cups)
  • 6 tablespoons candied ginger, minced
  • 6 tablespoons grenadine


  1. Grenadine is a sweet scarlet syrup made from pomegranate juice that, at one time, was exclusively produced on the Caribbean island of Grenada. It flavors and adds color to desserts and drinks, such as the children's ginger-ale-based "cocktail" called the Shirley Temple.
  2. For each healthy dessert, arrange 1/2 a cup of raspberries and 1/2 a cup of grapes in a crystal goblet or martini glass. Sprinkle 1 tablespoon of minced, candied ginger over the fruit and then drizzle with 1 tablespoon of grenadine.
