How often have you been made to feel guilty about indulging your sweet tooth for “no apparent reason” by the people around you? More than a few times? Us too!
Eating dessert doesn’t mean you have little or no self-control. It only means that you have a good sense of what you like and that you have what it takes to honour these cravings - so really, bravo for knowing what you want! While we don’t need a reason to eat desserts, switching to a healthier alternative is a great way to both indulge and stay on track with your health and wellness goals.
So, instead of denying yourself the object of your affection, make these three recipes and continue to enjoy what makes you happy!
