Seven Delicious & Healthy Desserts

Chocolate Coconut Bite Recipe Seven Delicious & Healthy Desserts

I’ve shared my healthy kids snacks, healthy breakfast ideas, and healthy salad dressings that all can be made at home to save time and money… but what is life with no dessert? This week, I’m sharing the top seven dessert recipes that we eat on special occasions. If you are going to indulge, try these recipes! They taste great and have health benefits (certainly more than I can say for most desserts!)

Chocolate Coconut Bites

A mixture of almond joy bars and coconut macaroons, these naturally sweet bites are packed with nutrition and healthy fats! Kids love them and you can feel good about letting your kids eat them!

Chocolate Raspberry Pie

We eat this in place of birthday cake during our summer birthdays when berries are in season, but in can be made year round! This “pie” is a chocolate almond crust with fresh raspberry filling and homemade whipped cream topping!

Chocolate Almond Butter Cookies

Eating healthy doesn’t mean leaving behind the joys of chocolate every once in a while. These cookies are packed with protein and don’t contain any flour or sugar. They use almond butter and eggs as a base and have a delicious chewy chocolate taste!

Homemade Energy Bar “Cookie Dough”

This variation on the Homemade Energy Bar recipe makes them more like cookie dough, or cookies, but you don’t have to bake them. To make, just use the recipe above and instead of forming into bars, make into the shape of cookies, or just eat out of the bowl.

Protein Smoothie Ice Cream

This smoothie can be adjusted to be a wonderful replacement for high fructose corn syrup laden ice cream. Just make the recipe above, but add an extra cup of ice. You can also stick in the freezer for a few minutes to harden more, or put in an ice cream maker!

Fresh Berries with Homemade Whipped Cream

This is possibly my favorite dessert recipe of all time, and it is really simple to make. Just put a handful of fresh berries (or any fruit) into a bowl and top with homemade whipped cream. To make the cream, whip, whisk, or blend with an immersion blender 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream with 1/2 tsp vanilla.

Baked Apple Crumble

Another easy and delicious recipe that kids (and adults) will love! Just core and peel 4 apples (or 1 per person) and thinly slice into medium baking dish. In a blender, grind  1/2 cup almonds (or more) until powdery. Using your hands, mix the almonds with 3 TBSP butter or coconut oil, 2 TBSP cinnamon and 1/2 tsp stevia (optional). Crumble the almond topping over the apples, drizzle with some coconut milk and bake at 350 until tender.

    Made lemon mousse today! Started with lemon curd (egg yolk, egg, honey and lemon) and folded in real whipped cream. Not something I’d eat every day, but it is divine! I think I may use it as a topping for the raspberry pie next time I make it.

    I’m looking for a cake to make for my daughter’s first birthday. I want to make her her own mini cake and not feel bad about her getting too much sugar. My husband doesn’t like carrot cake and is fairly picky. I’d like to find something that he would eat too. Any ideas?
