On my home from the office, I saw a delivery van with this sign:
â€œA balance diet should always consist of desserts.â€
I was like, â€œDuh, is this a joke?â€ I always connect desserts to high calorie and high in fat food so how can you recommend eating desserts everyday if you want to live a healthy lifestyle.
With various coupon codes and vouchers available for restaurant deals, time will come that we will give in to those sweet delights. But then I realized that eating desserts could be guilt-free too by following some of these tips on how you can eat healthy desserts:
Tips for making health deserts
1. Use fruit as an ingredient.
Health experts advised that we eat at least 5 portions of fruits and vegetables everyday so making a fruit dessert is a very healthy option. You can make a fruit salad made from different fruits like apple, oranges, bananas, and you can also add nuts, raisins and fresh fruit juice for added taste and texture.
2. Eat Yogurt instead of ice cream.
If you canâ€™t resist eating ice cream for dessert then choose frozen yogurt instead. Yogurt contains anti oxidants to wash away bad toxins from your body and at the same time, it will help you satisfy your sweet tooth craving.
3. Choose Low Fat substitutes
When making your dessert, use low-fat milk instead of full cream or choose low-fat cheese like ricotta and cottage cheese instead of the regular fatty cheese.
4. Use natural sweetener alternatives
If you really need to add sugar to make your dessert, then use sweetener alternatives like honey, maple syrup, and the like.
5. Make your OWN deserts
Instead of ordering from a restaurant, why not try making desserts at home. By doing so, you will have total control of the ingredients to use for the dessert so you can choose the healthier alternative like the ones suggested above. Search the net and you will find a lot of recipes for healthy desserts like fruit parfait, baked apples, frozen banana bites and more.
