Even if you’re not on a diet, these healthy dessert options are great!
When I have a party, I almost always have a full dessert table. But I make sure that at least one of the items is healthy such as fruit — and I have begun offering smaller serving sizes as well as selecting lighter version of some of our favorite desserts. Here are some of the best substitutes I have found, but, rest assured, they in no way have substituted taste. These 10 awesome recipes include a fabulous chocolate fruit dip, baked peaches, a healthy pumpkin pie recipe, carrot cake with butternut squash hidden in it, chocolate cake with pumpkin hidden in it, homemade fudgesicles and a Weight Watchers black forest sundae recipe. Enjoy!
