Hi, friends!

This afternoon’s post is inspired by the email I received below:

Hey Tina,

I just stumbled across your Blueberry Pie for One recipe and I had to drop you a line to say thank you! To be honest I often lack the patience to make anything particularly complicated up so it’s awesome that even when I’m feeling lazy I can make up something like this in five minutes.

So thank you! You got any other five minute gems in your archives that I should know about?

Five-minute dessert gems? Ooooh, yes, I definitely have a few of those I can share!

All of the desserts below can be made quickly and effortlessly in five minutes or less. Each single-serving recipe is made with (mostly) wholesome ingredients, so they’re portion-friendly and semi-healthy at the same time. The best of both worlds, right? I hope you enjoy them as much as I do!
