10 Dessert Recipes That Are Actually Good For You

10 Dessert Recipes that are actually good for you from

What would the world be without dessert? A sad place in my book. What if you could enjoy a bunch of sweet treats that are actually nutritious and close to guilt free? You have to try these 10 dessert recipes that are actually good for you! Don’t feel like you have to abstain from dessert when there are plenty of dye free, low sugar, big flavor treats out there. I’m a firm believer that kids should have some sort of treat most days. That doesn’t mean it should be full of junk, though. I’m talking about desserts that are made with naturally delicious foods like a mix of fruits, creamy yogurt, nuts, seeds and even the occasional vegetable thrown in. After all, what would zucchini bread be without it’s soft texture that makes the chocolate zucchini bread below so darn moist and tender? After you try these recipes you won’t believe they’re actually good for you!

I’m a firm believer in balance and that includes sweet treats and desserts. If they’re off limits to kids they will only want them more. Take it from this kid who rarely got dessert as a kid and can’t get enough as an adult. When you’re restricted from anything in life it will only make you want it more. Even now after my kids have a good dinner, they tend to lean towards an avocado shake, better than ice cream or chia seed pudding over any kind of packaged treat as they’re just too sweet. These 10 dessert recipes that are actually good for you will inspire you to peek in your fridge and pantry and realize you most likely already have the makings for at least one of these nutritious desserts right at your finger tips.

If you make any of them I would love to see the picture! Just tag #weelicious on Instagram, Facebook or Snapchat (WeeliciousSnap) so I can see!
