7 healthier desserts

20th January 2017 by Sophie

If you’re trying to live a little lighter in 2017 then here’s one easy way to do that without sacrificing your favourite flavours - dessert swaps! Swap your favourite treats for these easy and healthier alternatives, and you’ll be making better choices without compromising on taste!

#1 banana split 1

Bananas are a great snack, low in fat and cholesterol, high in vitamin B16, containing manganese, vitamin C, potassium and fibre. They’re perfect to fight off hunger pangs at any time of day. Combine them with a source of protein and you’ve got stellar workout fuel.

Split banana in half, drizzle with greek yoghurt or nut butter and sprinkle with the topper of your choice.

I know you’re probably raising a serious eyebrow right now, but trust me on this one – this raw mousse is seriously amazing and gives you the same ‘I’m spoiling myself’ feeling as the shop bought kind, but with so many benefits.

#5 carrot cake 5

I’m always looking for ways to bake healthier treats and these gluten-free morning muffins definitely fit the bill. Made with oat flour, warming spices like nutmeg, ginger and cinnamon, grated carrot, applesauce, chewy raisins and superfruit Baobab Powder (my new fave superfood).

These little muffins make for a perfect wholesome snack, breakfast or “treat” by slathering on the decadently rich maple-orange cashew frosting, which is much easier to make than it sounds – trust me!

This bread is delicious and pairs perfectly with a cup of coffee for breakfast or makes a great snack during the day! I love all of the superfood snacks and ingredients graze offers and this bag of cacao nibs are perfect for this recipe. What’s great is they’re high in fibre, less processed, and have no added sugar.
