    It looks delicious, no pretty, so nutritious. But the marshmallow will have to go! Why top off a perfectly healthy dessert with nothing but pure sugar. I'm going to substitute a green grape, OK, it's not white, but it IS healthy! Marshmallow really don't have a place in our Healthy Lifestyle!! - 5/18/14

    I think I will skip the marshmallow and use a small piece of white cheese instead...or a piece of starfruit. Or both! :) - 5/24/14
