Just because something is sweet, doesn’t mean it has to be unhealthy. Not only is dessert usually quite unhealthy, they’re generally packed with artificial sweeteners and refined sugars. Try incorporating sweet ingredients like dates, nuts, avocados, fruits and peanut butter as alternatives to your favourite treats and that will help satisfy your sweet tooth in the healthiest way possible.
Here are some of our favourite healthy sweets – enjoy!
- Avocado chocolate mousse with fruit
