A healthier diet is a wise choice when it comes to sugar-laden desserts. We all know the health risks of eating too much of this sugary sweet stuff, but there are still healthy alternatives. All you need is a few ingredients and your taste buds will be grateful like these healthy sweets.
Healthy Sweet Choices
Fruit Salad: Combine fresh fruits like bananas, apples, and pears with plain yogurt and olive oil. The resulting drink tastes like a heavenly blend of fresh fruits. It also goes very well with some fruit juice and sweetened water. Do not be afraid to add some of the “healthy” food groups, as it takes a good deal of the natural sweetness of the fruit to make it taste right.
Lemonade Drink: Make your own version of this old-fashioned summer favorite with less sugar. Fill a bottle of water or tea kettles with plain water and add a few tablespoons of sugar. If you really want a sweeter taste, pour in a few drops of lemon extract.
Spicy Dessert: Rub the skin of strawberries on banana slices and then coat them in mayonnaise. Spread some whipped topping on top and let it sit for several hours. The banana chunks will naturally release their juices, which in turn will moisten the whipped topping.
Sweet Potato Pie: Add some sliced bananas with sweet potatoes before baking. This dessert has loads of healthy, potassium, fiber, and protein.
Smoky Chocolate Cake: Mix together honey, sugar, vanilla extract, cinnamon, cloves, and nutmeg. When you pour this into a glass, you get a mix of sweet, natural flavors. It will also keep your calories low.
