Healthy Summer Treats Alternatives

I have a major sweet tooth, and not only do I love eating a ton of desserts and junk food, but once I start, I usually can't stop. We're talking multiple cookies and a couple scoops of ice cream. I've been trying to eat healthier lately which has resulted in me getting creative and trying out healthier dessert options. One of the great things about healthier options for desserts is that not only will they cure any cravings, but they won't taste so extremely fabulous that you won't be able to stop. A few of my favorite options...


Banana with Peanut Butter or Chocolate | Not only is this sweet treat super good for you, but it's also easy to make and customizable to your liking. Spread a little peanut butter on slices of banana or even dip them in chocolate or add chocolate chips. Either way, you probably won't want to down a ton of bananas, so you won't be tempted to have more after just one serving.

Raspberry Yogurt with Chocolate Chips | Honestly, this tastes like ice cream, and it's even better if you freeze your yogurt so it's literally frozen yogurt but nothing bad added to it! Simply toss in a few chocolate chips to raspberry yogurt (or any flavor of choosing) and you have a delightfully healthy and yummy combination. Even better, after just one yogurt (usually only 100 calories!) you will be satisfied and unlikely to overindulge.

Apples with Cinnamon Sugar | Another yummy option that doesn't require much effort! Sprinkle a little bit of cinnamon sugar on slices of apples for a sweet and savory taste, or even better, pop the slices into the oven for a few minutes for a yummy option that is literally as sweet as pie! One apple is sure to cure your cravings and fill you up.

What are some of your healthy dessert alternatives?

  3. Love these ideas! Usually I don't have dessert, but when I do indulge I like skinny cupcakes from the Sally's Baking Addiction blog!

  5. If you freeze overripe, brown bananas and then blend them, it makes a super creamy ice cream-like dessert! It's dangerously good, especially if you add some cocoa powder (it can be unsweetened though, the bananas more than make up for it).
