You don’t have to reject your sweet cravings to live a healthy lifestyle. Just change the way you ‘do’ sweet treats. Start fixing your dessert using healthy foods like fruits, nuts, and dark chocolate. Here are 3 quick and healthy desserts that you can enjoy EVERYDAY!
1. Chocolate-Dipped Strawberry
Fight out chocolate’s ‘not-so-healthy’ side by using it as a sweet coating on strawberries. Yes! Dip a couple of strawberries in chocolate and let it set in the refrigerator until the chocolate coating hardens. Time to enjoy a delicious fruity- choco dessert!
2. Frozen Chocolate Banana
This is the perfect frozen sweet treat with great nutrition! How? Bananas are great source of vitamins, and are packed with potassium. So, to get started with this easy dessert, peel a banana, cut into two equal halves and freeze them. Once they are solid with refrigeration, roll them in melted dark chocolate. While the chocolate is still melty, roll them in your favourite crunchy topping (sprinkles, nuts, and granola). Freeze the coated bananas again until the chocolate is set. Time to celebrate your sweet tooth!
3. All-Fruit Popsicle
This makes a great healthy treat! And, there’s no added sugar in these cool treats. Simply puree some watermelon pieces and some lime juice together. Freeze them in small containers and enjoy. You can also try other juicy fruits like, pears, peaches and berries with a dash of apple juice for base. These will all make great pops with fantastic flavour. And, it is all healthy!
