Anyone who knows me knows that I’m a BIG dessert lover.
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: There is nothing wrong with treating yourself with a (less than healthy) dessert.
It’s when you begin to indulge on a regular basis that it becomes less of a treat and more of an expectation or habit…THAT is the issue.
If your sweet tooth is getting the best of you, consider treating yourself to a healthy version of your favorite dessert instead.
You will still satisfy your sweet tooth, and you will avoid the sugar coma that comes from most traditional desserts.
Most traditional dessert recipes completely ignore the hormonal impact of your food. Even low calorie desserts are still full of sugar and do nothing to make you balance cravings or burn more body fat.
Making my own healthy desserts (aka “Dessert Defense”) is an awesome way to enjoy dessert and still stay on track with my fitness and fat loss goals!
When it comes to satisfying your sweet tooth, these healthy desserts take the (low carb, high protein) cake.
Here are 15 of my favorite guilt-free desserts. Trust me – they’re delicious:
- CONFETTI PROTEIN BARS
- SUGAR FREE CHOCOLATE CAKE
- SKINNY CHUNKY MONKEY COOKIES
- HEALTHY BLUEBERRY PIE
- HEALTHY PEANUT BUTTER EGGS
- GLUTEN FREE PEANUT BUTTER COOKIES
- CHOCOLATE PECAN COCONUT CUPS
- SWEET POTATO COOKIES
- CRUSTLESS PUMPKIN PIE
- BANANA OAT BREAKFAST COOKIES
- FUDGY VEGAN BROWNIES
- CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIE DOUGH BITES
- STRAWBERRY CHEESECAKE
- NO SUGAR CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIE PIE
- LOW CARB DONUTS
And if you don’t have the time (or aren’t in the mood) to whip up a healthy dessert in the kitchen…I’ve recently become addicted to these protein cookies! I’ve tried chocolate chip, double chocolate and oatmeal raisin and they’re all delicious!
I found them from Icon Meals and I love to keep a few in my freezer for grab & go sweet tooth crisis situations.
