I love dessert! Our favourite healthy sweet tooth fixes

The healthiest dessert options are those that strike a balance between satisfying your sweet tooth and providing nutritional benefits.

At the core of what makes a dessert healthy lies the idea of nutrient density. Unlike traditional sugary treats that offer little more than a momentary burst of sweetness, healthy desserts nourish your body.

Our favourite healthy and nutritious dessert choices:

Go easy on the fruit - excessive amounts can lead to fatty liver disease because of the high concentration of sugar.

  1. Fresh Fruit Salad: A colourful mix of fresh, seasonal fruits provides natural sweetness, fibre, vitamins, and antioxidants. You can enhance it with a drizzle of honey or a sprinkle of cinnamon for extra flavour.
  2. Greek Yogurt with Berries: Greek yogurt is rich in protein and probiotics, while berries offer natural sweetness and antioxidants. Add a touch of honey for extra sweetness if desired.
  3. Dark Chocolate: Dark chocolate with a high cocoa content (70% or more) contains less sugar and is rich in antioxidants. Enjoy a small piece to satisfy your chocolate cravings.
  4. Baked Apples: Baking apples with a sprinkle of cinnamon and a drizzle of honey creates a warm, comforting dessert that’s rich in fibre and vitamins.
  5. Chia Pudding: Chia seeds soaked in almond milk or yogurt can be sweetened with natural sweeteners like honey or maple syrup. They provide omega-3 fatty acids, fibre, and a delightful pudding-like texture.
  6. Frozen Banana “Nice Cream”: Blend frozen bananas until creamy for a guilt-free, dairy-free ice cream alternative. You can add cocoa powder, peanut butter, or fruit for flavour variety.
  7. Homemade Oatmeal Cookies: Using whole-grain oats, minimal sugar, and adding dried fruits or nuts can create a healthier cookie option.
  8. Mixed Nuts: A small serving of mixed nuts, like almonds or walnuts, provides healthy fats, protein, and a satisfying crunch.
