I’ve always been the type of person that has room for dessert, no matter how full and bursting I already am with food. Before I got interested in health and nutrition, I’d often have dessert instead of dinner. Because, you know, why waste room on vegetables….
These days I’m a little more health focused, but I’ve still got that same sweet tooth. That’s why I try my hardest to create dessert recipes with benefits. The more nutritious, the better!
If you’ve come across Sarah in Shape before, you’re probably aware that we’re ALL about those healthy desserts and treats. Healthier desserts are one of my favourite things in life. I love throwing random whole ingredients into the food processor or mixing bowl and seeing what kind of deliciousness develops.
There’s nothing more satisfying than finding a combination of healthy ingredients that blows your taste buds (and then running to your MacBook to quickly tell your readers, of course). And with recipes as nutritious as these bad boys, I don’t feel nearly as guilty about skipping dinner for dessert 😉
