We all love our desserts but finding recipes for healthy treats is not easy. Here’s my favorite top ten healthy desserts that will keep that little devil on your shoulder from winning!
Learning to bake is one of my new year’s resolutions and I’m working on it but lucky for you in the meantime I have these gorgeous desserts from my talented blogger friends. Check it out!
Two ingredients, fifteen minutes – what?? Yep, that’s all it takes to put this gorgeous serving of chocolate heaven on your table. Bobbi tells us that chocolate is good for us because it elevates our mood. I’ll be doing the happy dance by the time I finish this!
This is as easy to make as a crumble can get with none of the usual unwanted calories. I included some walnuts in the topping to give it a little extra crunch. You can use frozen berries in the colder months.
When I first saw this on Donna’s blog, I had to blink a few times because it’s the best looking banana bread I’ve ever seen. I rarely have banana bread because I’m not much of a baker and if I was, I’d be making it every day! Yep, totally hooked and now it’s ok because this healthy creation is chock full of goodness and it’s time I learned how to bake! Yumminess.
This slice of heaven is perfect with a little dollop of ice cream. A half-cup serving of vanilla or chocolate ice cream – which has about 140 calories, 7g fat and 14g sugar – can be a reasonable part of your diet. Good news, right? Tania has added cinnamon, black raisins and Amaretto to this creative dessert. LOVE!
Check out these tantalizing bites! Don’t you love Jenn’s creativity? These flaky phyllo cups are filled with maple orange butternut puree, toasted pistachios, walnuts and pecans and then drizzled with honey. I know! Run over and get the recipe!!
Katie’s goal is to demonstrate to readers that gluten-free can be amazing and she’s certainly done that with this beautiful cake! It’s dairy-free with a vegan frosting too and if you love coconut and chocolate you’re going to be all over this. I’m licking my lips as I read her post and description. Fabulous!
I discovered blueberry syrup for the first time this summer at a local farmers’ market and I’m totally sold. As I mentioned earlier, ice cream (in moderation) can be a part of a healthy diet and when you add some fruit, it’s the perfect easy dessert in any kind of weather. A topping of fresh basil adds something extra.
This beauty is made with raw cashews instead of cream cheese and it’s no bake! That’s the first thing that caught my eye along with the fact that I wanted to dive right into it! Neli has made this dairy-free, gluten-free raw cheesecake so light and creamy and it will add color to your table and smiles to your family’s faces!
Rebecca has created this amazing cookies that are gluten-free, vegan and paleo. Pumpkin is such a popular ingredient and when you add those tasty chocolate sprinkles you’d better be prepared to do battle for the last cookie! Can you believe there’s only 70 calories in 1 cookie? That’s about 350 fewer calories than the average cookie!
I wanted to save this beautiful slice of perfection till the end to remind everyone that YES, you can have healthy deliciousness and this is your proof. This dessert has no dairy, flour or refined sugar. It is vegan and gluten-free.
I will use Brianne’s words to describe this stunning dessert because I can’t do it justice – “This pie is what dreams are made of. Features a creamy, decadent chocolate filling topped with fluffy coconut whipped cream. The chocolate hazelnut crust is packed with flaky coconut and is good enough to be eaten on its own. An impressive dessert that’s sure to impress. “
Oh yes, I’m impressed!!
