Dessert is probably the best part of a meal. The sweet taste is the perfect ending to the meal and a long day. No wonder we all get cravings to satisfy our sweet tooth towards the end of the day. Most people can have as many desserts as they want but weight-conscious people are constantly torn inside as they resist their favorite desserts. Thankfully, there are some desserts that we can still enjoy even if we’re trying to be strict about what we eat.
One of these is a sweet potato pudding. We’re all aware of how nutrient-rich a sweet potato is and this is the most important reason to include it in our diet. It provides us with plenty of vitamins and lots of fibre. You can make a sweet potato pudding by grabbing a recipe on the Internet and let me promise you that it’s absolutely delicious. You’ll really love the creamy texture.
Chia protein pudding is another dessert you can have when you’ve got a close eye on the calories being consumed. Chia seeds are extremely popular these days and hold many nutrients such as fibre, protein and plenty of healthy fats. The unique thing about these is that they form a gel-like substance when in contact with liquid. If you add some protein powder and organic cacao powder then you can be sure that you’ll be getting a very healthy dessert.
Cobbler made from berries is another healthy alternative for desserts. This can come out extremely tasty and is usually very easy to make, which is always a bonus. Normally, we use white flour to make cobbler however, to make this healthier cobbler, you can substitute the white flour for gluten-free flour. Berries will also be advantageous, as they will contain natural sugars along with antioxidants and lots of vitamins and minerals that are needed by the body.
Once again, these are just three healthier alternatives for desserts. There are plenty of more recipes available if you looked hard enough and I urge you to do exactly this!
I would also recommend trying out this recipe for dairy free and sugar free raspberry cheesecake. It tastes absolutely delicious and is quite healthy as well.
