10 Wholesome and Healthy Dessert Recipes - Recipes from The Kitchn
From The Kitchn - October 13, 2017

My approach to food and cooking has always been "everything in moderation." I value a healthy, active lifestyle with a meal plan full of wholesome, nutritious meals. But I also have a serious sweet tooth. And since I am not one to ever say no to dessert, I like to stick with healthy-ish choices that rely on wholesome ingredient swaps and limited sugar. Here are 10 of my favorites.

1. How To Make the Best Chocolate Avocado Pudding

Calling all chocolate-lovers! This sweet treat is as chocolatey and luscious as any other pudding. It's also vegan, gluten-free, and packed with all the good fat that comes with creamy avocado.

2. How To Make Creamy, Vegan Chia Pudding

The beauty of chia pudding is that it totally satisfies my craving for something sweet after dinner and it's wholesome enough to eat for breakfast. I love topping mine with a fruit pure, fresh fruit, or cocoa nibs.

3. 4-Ingredient Chocolate Banana Coconut Cookies

These magical three-bite treats are basically a mash-up of banana bread and coconut macaroons dipped in dark chocolate. And with the right kind of chocolate, they are even vegan-friendly.

4. Honey and Cashew Butter Yogurt Ice Pops

When I am craving a cool, creamy dessert, I have zero reservations about reaching for one of these pops. They come together with yogurt, cashew butter, and honey for a satisfying treat with an extra punch of protein.

5. No-Bake Peanut Butter Protein Cookies

This wholesome take on chocolate peanut butter cookies comes with the added bonus of keeping the oven off.

6. Whipped Yogurt with Apples and Walnuts

7. Creamy Orange Date Smoothie

8. Zucchini Chocolate Breakfast Cookies

9. Strawberry Yogurt Lassi
