3 Healthy Desserts When You’re Craving Something Sweet
Fortunately, there are plenty of healthy desserts when you’re craving something sweet that won’t force you to regress in your healthy diet.
Strawberry Frozen Yogurt Bites
These frozen berries work great for a dessert or even as a snack on a hot afternoon. They’re delicious, healthy, and effortless to make, too.
Simply cut off the stem of each strawberry, lay them flat side down on a tray covered with parchment paper, and coat them with your favorite flavor of Greek yogurt.
Throw the tray into the freezer once you finish, and you’re good to go. The berries will be ready in just a few hours, and you can pop these cool, creamy treats right into your mouth.
Lemon Balm Sorbet
When you’re craving something sweet, a great healthy dessert is lemon balm sorbet; anything that utilizes lemon balm—which offers several health benefits—makes it a good choice for your digestion.
To make this delicious frozen treat, pour one cup of boiling water over a cup and a half of sugar (or alternative sweetener), zest from one lemon, and one-half cup each of chopped lemon balm and mint.
Allow the ingredients to steep for about 20 minutes before straining the liquid into a freezer-safe container—add a splash of lemon juice to give it an extra citrus kick. Mix the liquid well and let it freeze for at least six hours before diving into this delicious, crisp sorbet.
Apples are just fine on their own, but we don’t usually consider them a strong go-to for dessert. However, thanks to your oven (or even your microwave), you can turn these plain Jane fruits into a delicious treat.
Cut your apples into quarters and drizzle them with a touch of maple syrup and a pinch of cinnamon.
Sprinkle them with unseasoned breadcrumbs, chopped nuts, or granola for some extra crunch to remind you of apple pie. Bake or microwave until the apple is hot, soft, and ready to enjoy.
