Who doesn’t love to indulge in desserts every now and then? We know we do! But the good news: Delicious desserts don’t necessarily have to be made with unhealthy ingredients or be high in calories. Below, we put together some healthier dessert options that will satiate those sweets cravings – guilt-free! (Links to recipes or products are in pink!)
Homemade Pineapple Coconut FroYo
There are days when all you want is a cold, creamy dessert – even in winter! This fruity pineapple-coconut frozen yogurt from Living Well Mom is a refreshing treat that requires just four ingredients: banana, coconut milk, and frozen pineapple chunks. Simply blend the ingredients into a food processor, then serve (or freeze and save for later).
Dairy-Free Sponge Cake
This dairy-free sponge cake recipe from Go Dairy Free is a great option for those who are lactose intolerant. All you need is eggs, cream of tartar, cake flour, and sugar. One 1/12 slice equals only 132 calories. You can garnish with powdered sugar, fresh fruit, and mint on top.
Karma Baker Oatmeal Chai Sandwich Cookies
If you don’t want to make your own dessert, check out the nationwide delivery menu at Karma Baker. We particularly love the vegan, corn-free, and gluten-free Oatmeal Chai Sandwich Cookies ($36 for a box of six).
Erin McKenna’s Bakery Brownie Bites
Another bakery we love that delivers nationwide is Erin McKenna’s Bakery. We are particularly obsessed with the Vegan + Gluten-Free Brownie Bites ($39 for a 12 pack), which includes both blondies and “brookies.” All desserts are non-GMO and gluten-free and made with vegan sugar and agave nectar.
Chocolate Chia Tart With Berries
For our chocolate lovers, we simply couldn’t make a list of low-calorie desserts without including this Chocolate Chia Tart from Taste. This recipe requires a little more work than others on this list, but it is completely worth the effort. You will need reduced-sugar craisins, Freedom Foods Barley+ Pink Lady Apple & Macadamia Toasted Muesli, chia seeds, coconut oil, dark chocolate, coconut yogurt, maple syrup, berries, and edible flowers for garnish.
