Healthy Desserts Made Easy For Your Sweet Tooth
Desserts and happiness are synonyms for a lot of us out there. Before we go further, let me assure you, we are not talking about healthy desserts as in a fruit bowl or a cup of dark chocolate. It has often been misunderstood that healthy implies complicated. Simple changes in your diet and your favorite recipes can make the difference between indulgence and a dessert that’s good for you.
All you have to do is know who are your friends and who you should avoid for the time being. Making this change permanently in your routine can assist you in making “healthy” the norm, rather than the occasional choice that you are forced to make.
For all the parents – you don’t have to play the bad cop anymore and deny your kids those treats. Guess what? Desserts are healthy now! Kids can relish them whenever they want. Adding nuts, avocados, whole grains, dates, and even chickpeas has made desserts super healthy and a must-have for everyone who wants to eat right.
So, we have taken on a few commonly loved desserts and have put a healthy spin on them. Come on, go through this life-changing list and let us know how this worked out for you!
King Of Desserts – Avocado Chocolate Mousse With Fruit
What we love most about this particular dessert is how it uses the versatile nature of avocados to get a creamy, rich texture, essential for a mousse. Dark chocolate instead of your regular bar increases the level of antioxidants. Seasonal, fresh fruit spells goodness right from the start. A few nuts of your choice for the crunch and a blender. Yes, that is all you need to make this king of healthy desserts!
Queen Of Desserts – Vegan Raspberry Lemon Chia Cheesecake
I have to confess, I had been waiting all my life for someone to add the word “healthy” to “Cheesecake”. I can have cheesecake any time of any day! And it made me so sad not having a healthier version of the same to share with my family and friends. But no more!
For the base, use dates and nuts. Crush the nuts as you would crush the biscuits. Blend the dates using a blender. Mix the two. Dates hold the nuts together and act as a sweetener as well. Coconut milk and cashew paste together form the middle part. And the topping is made from fresh, seasonal raspberries and chia seeds. This dessert is beyond healthy! Let’s have this every day!
Cinnamon Baked Pears – Dessert Anytime
Cinnamon. Pears. Baked. Those three words are enough to turn heads right away! Having a fancy dinner at your place? Exhausted from cooking all those dishes? If this is you, we understand that you may have no energy left by the time you get to the dessert section. Worry not, this recipe will not only save you but will make you the star of the show.
Fresh, seasonal soft pears cut into halves, drizzled with maple syrups and cinnamon. Baked to perfection. That’s all! It’s done.
