I don’t know about you, but I have an insane sweet tooth, and so does my family! Traditional ice cream and other yummy desserts are not healthy and just invite a large bill from your dentist. So I thought I would share some of my favorite healthy dessert recipes that are still sweet and yummy, but pack in the vitamins instead of the refined sugar. Enjoy!
1. Banana Nice Cream
5-6 frozen bananas (if your bananas arent frozen, add them in room temp and then add ice)
1/2 – 1 cup Vanilla Almond Milk
sliced fruit or nuts (optional)
I take my Vitamix, (I use one like this) toss in the bananas, half the milk and start blending. I add in more milk as needed until you reach ice cream consistency. That’s it!
2. Raw Chocolate Pudding
2 avocados (pitted and scraped)
2T maple syrup
2T cacao powder
1/2t vanilla extract
1/4c filtered water
chopped nuts (optional)
sliced fruit like raspberries (optional)
Grab your Vitamix, toss everything in and whip till smooth. Put it in the fridge for a hour or so until nice and chilled. Add toppings if desired!
3. Cacao No-Bake Chocolate Bites
1/2 cup almonds
1 cup medjool dates (pitted)
1T cacao powder
Blend through almonds in a food processor. Add in dates and cacao powder and blend again. The mixture should be sticky. Take a tablespoon or two and roll them in between your hands to form ball shapes. (Tip: wet your hands with water if the mixture starts to stick) All done! I’d you would like, our can roll the bites in coconut flakes or chopped nuts!
I love these recipes because they are NO BAKE. No cooking when it’s 100 degrees out, just yummy, quick healthy recipes!
