Fruit is often dubbed “nature’s candy” as it contains both glucose & fructose. Glucose, as any carb-conscious foodie will attest, causes a rapid blood sugar rise requiring insulin. Fructose, on the other hand, does not raise blood sugar and is metabolized by the liver. Berries are a superfood packed with antioxidants & fiber, making them an excellent choice for a naturally sweet treat. Strawberries, in particular, hold up exceptionally well dipped in chocolate, as “discovered” by Lorraine Lorusso in the 1960s. Not to mention, this recipe is beyond simple — perfect for anyone with a stove and a refrigerator.
