Dessert in Vegas

Thursday, July 29, 2010

Okay, I am actually making good on these blog promises I’ve been making! I figured this separate blog for desserts should start out with a promise between me and you. I promise to show pictures of the various desserts I ate and you promise not to judge me. K? lol

To be fair, as with the food, these desserts were spread out over three days and were after various meals. Considering we ate at the buffet four times a day, and ate dessert almost every time we went, we weren’t that bad!

The first “dessert” was actually from a yogurt shop and not the buffet.

But I had to try it! I have never gotten to have self-serve fro yo before and I actually loved the process more than the taste. I loved walking around through the various flavors and being able to get a little bit of this and that.

The flavors I chose starting from the left are banana, peanut butter, and finally dark chocolate. Then topped with really yummy strawberries, which were actually the best part. The problem with the frozen yogurt was that it was NOT soft serve. It was all icy on the outside and I had to break through it to get to the creamy middle. Ah well.

Ok, let’s hit the buffet. The desserts at the buffet that were the BEST were:

Oreo Cheesecake (It is actually ridiculous how good this was).

Sugar Free Banana Bread (I don’t know what they put in this, but it has to be the moistest bread/cake I have ever eaten).

CREAMY fro-yo with brownie (the brownie was the best part, dense, thick, moist, chocolate, yum!)

S’More Mush and Chocolate Pie (Ok, I’m not really sure what to call the dessert on the left, but it was warm chocolate cake, with chocolate sauce, graham crackers and warm gooey marshmallows, yeah it was pretty epic!)

You can tell that I loved these three desserts the best. Oreo Cheesecake; S’More Mush; and Fro-yo (Mixing the S’more stuff with the fro-yo I think made my eyes roll around in my head for awhile! YUM)

On the left is panna cotta which was fantastic! In fact, I think my best friend Tawnya ate this for dessert every time we went! The fruit tarts on the right were…okay. But I wasn’t wowed.

Panna Cotta, Pistachio Crème Brule and Caramel Flan. (The panna cotta was, of course, amazing, but the other two were….just weird).

The worst of the bunch I didn’t even finish. Here is some sort of weird pineapple tart (the pineapple was actually flavorless. I have NO CLUE how they took pineapple and sucked the flavor out of it). And a sugar-free cheesecake which I got at first only because the slices of it were much smaller than the Oreo cheesecake. And I wasn’t quite in my “must EAT Vegas phase” yet.

Both were just awful. There was probably more panna cotta that was eaten, but those are all the pictures I found!

Now I’m back at home and sticking to my usual desserts of banana soft serve or frozen fruit blended with Greek yogurt. Summer = cold and creamy desserts! Dessert CAN be a healthy addition to your day!

What have you been enjoying for dessert lately?

    Here's a "separate blog on desserts": You're my kinda gal!! About three minutes ago, I finished a healthy dinner, and now I'm drooling into my keyboard so much, I fear electrocution! My, oh, my, what tempting goodies these are! Fortunately, I can't get any closer to these goodies than the pix you took, because I'd lay waste to them PRONTO! Some people just know how to celebrate; you are definitely one of 'em! - Sandi emoticon
