There is nothing worse than having to give up on sweet treats when you are trying to live a healthier life especially if you have a big sweet tooth like me. So here is a list of 20 healthy dessert recipes that you can eat without guilt and are as tasty as the originals!
You know how the saying goes “eat to live”, well for me it’s the other way around. I live to eat but more importantly eat a moderate balanced diet and not remove any food groups completely unless I have an allergy or working towards a specific weight loss goal.
I know a lot of people who are big dessert eaters but have completely cut it off from their diets. Trust me I have also been on that bandwagon but I couldn’t keep up for too long. BIG DESSERT PERSON HERE! SO I curated some healthier dessert recipes, which are low in sugar, low in carbs and just overall much better for the body and the soul. Lets get into it!
Are homemade desserts healthier?
Usually the flexibility of making your desserts at home means you can change up the ingredients and make them as you like. You can make your treats by adding healthier alternatives for sugar, flour, and oil. Store bought desserts tend to have added preservatives and are usually full of ingredients that might make them full of calories and fat.
