Healthy Desserts Roundup
Want to Have Your Dessert and Eat it too?
I find that when I’m trying to “be good” or cut out added sugar from my diet, that’s when all the delicious desserts start coming around and they taunt me! I’m especially looking at you, Valentine’s Day candy!
So instead, I thought I’d pull together some healthier versions of desserts so we can still feel like we’re indulging – but without all the guilt! These healthy desserts are all made with some kind of fruit, which adds the sweetness factor you’re looking for. And when they aren’t in season, I head over the frozen aisle in my grocery store to stock up so I always have some on hand.
Remember, these ARE still desserts though, so everything in moderation and you’ll be fine!
I love cherries in my desserts! And they’re not just for the tops of sundaes or as a garnish in drinks. Cherries paired with chocolate are one of my favorite combos and can feel so decadent!

Strawberries are another fruit that can act as a great dessert! They add just enough sweetness without overdoing it and go great with both chocolate and Greek Yogurt.

The final fruit dessert that I want to highlight incorporates raspberries. I always feel like I’m treating myself when I pick up raspberries. They’re great in muffins, pudding, mixed with yogurt, made into ice cream.. the possibilities are endless!
