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 to taunt me!¬†So I thought I’d pull together this roundup of healthy desserts so we can still feel like we’re indulging – but without all the guilt!

These healthy desserts variations are all made with fruit, which adds the sweetness factor I’m craving. And when they aren’t in season, I head over the frozen aisle in my grocery store to stock up on frozen fruits so I always have some on hand.

Remember, these ARE still desserts though, so everything in moderation and you’ll be fine!

Cherry Goodness

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 probably one of my favorite combos and can feel so decadent!

Strawberry Overload

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.

Raspberry Delights

The final healthy desserts that I want to highlight incorporate raspberries. I always feel like I’m treating myself when I pick up raspberries. They’re great in muffins, pudding, mixed with yogurt, and even made into “nice cream”.. the possibilities are endless!

    Thank so much for posting! I am always looking for healthy dessert alternative because when my sweet tooth hits it isn’t pretty. I will definitely try some of these out and come up with some to share.

      Oh my gosh, I’m the same way with the sweet tooth! I used to NEED a dessert after every meal. It helps when you can have something sweet, yet guilt-free. If you try any, would love to hear how you liked it!

    Those strawberry frozen yogurt bites look magical! I’m going to have to try them.

    1. Rachel says:

      Awesome, hope you like it! One tip: you might want to let them thaw out slightly (just enough to soften it up) when you go to eat them.

  5. My daughter and I were looking these over and she’s like “Oh that looks good… and that… oh and that” haha! Definitely going to save this page for future reference. Love the photos!

    These recipes look ahhh-mazing! I am vegan but I can see how most, if not all, of these could easily be adapted. I’m excited to try some of them.
