The high content of potassium in bananas makes it a super fruit. This mineral is known for its numerous health benefits; it regulates heartbeat and blood pressure and keeps the brain alert. Therefore, make sure to add bananas to your daily diet to keep your heart and brain healthy and stabilize blood pressure. Desserts also rely heavily on sugar or other ingredients that we know are not good for us. Hence, the good feeling we get from eating desserts quickly turns into guilt. Yema is a sweet concoction made with milk and egg yolk. Back in the Middle Ages, the citizens of Avila, Spain enjoyed a pastry called Yemas de Egg Yolks of St. Teresa, which was named after the town’s patron saint.
