Quick & Healthy Dessert Ideas

SpouseLink |

BeyondBeautyStar shares 4 fantastic recipes that are simple, quick and healthy.  Leave the guilt that comes with deliciously fattening sweet desserts behind, and try out some of these healthier (and quite possibly tastier) options.

Banana Ice Cream

What you’ll need

  • 1 banana per person
  • A blender
  • Toppings such as shaved almonds and berries

Slice a banana. Blend your banana until the texture becomes ice cream-like. Add toppings and enjoy!


Cacao Cinnamon Yogurt

What you’ll need

  • Greek plain non-fat yogurt
  • Cacao nibs
  • Ground cinnamon

Add about 1 cup of yogurt per person, sprinkle cinnamon and cacao nibs over the yogurt.


Chocolate Butter Rice Cakes

What you’ll need

  • Rice cakes
  • PB2

Mix the PB2 with a bit of water until the consistency becomes that of melted chocolate. Drizzle over the rice cakes and enjoy.


Homemade Oatmeal Cookies

What you’ll need

  • Old fashioned rolled oats
  • 1 banana
  • A blender

Blend the oats. Mash your banana until gooey. Mix the banana and oats together. Place cookies onto a cookie sheet (this recipe will yield about 4 cookies). Bake at 350 degrees for 15-20 minutes until they turn golden brown. Feel free to add additional fillings like raisins and dark chocolate chips for additional flavor.
