A dessert is the one that delivers the flavor, texture, and aroma you love. While it is indeed something that can make you happy, don’t let those delicious desserts affect your health.
Here are some simple tips on how to prepare a healthy dessert
Add more fruits: Use no-sugar-added fruit juices. You can even include diced fruits to your desserts. They are healthier alternatives to refined white sugar.
Cut the calories: Replace sugar with sweeteners like Splenda to cut the calories in your desserts.
Use dark chocolate: Dark chocolates with at least 70% cocoa offers many health benefits. The higher the cocoa count is in the chocolate, the healthier it is.
Include nutrient-dense ingredients: Make your dessert healthier by including more nutritious ingredients. Include ingredients like fruits, vegetables, whole grains, beans, nuts, seeds, among others.
Dessert doesn’t always have to be high in fat and sugar. Topping fat-free vanilla yogourt or Greek yogourt with fruit and nuts is a healthy sweet treat.
