5 Satisfying Desserts That are Sugar-Free
One of the biggest detriments to overall health is taking in white sugar. Sweet foods that we love to indulge in are loaded with the stuff, while if you’re making things at home, there is a wide range of products to use besides sugar.
Natural sweeteners include honey, maple syrup, coconut sugar, and only some no-calorie sweeteners (Stevia is a good one).
With that in mind, Centers Health Care has details on five sugar-free desserts that will still make your sweet tooth happy.
- Keto Peanut Butter Cups
Create your own Reese’s-style peanut butter cups at home. Use all-natural peanut butter, sugar-free chocolate chips, and coconut oil for this creamy concoction.
- Almond Cake
Using almond flour (which is gluten-free) instead of bleached flour, this almond cake is sweetened with maple syrup, fresh berries, and honey. If you’re looking to make it dairy-free, all you have to do is swap out regular whipped cream for a dairy-free version.
- Keto Chocolate Truffles
Dark chocolate chips, vanilla extract, cocoa powder, and kosher salt are all you need for this decadent bite-sized snack. Oh yeah, you also need avocado! These only take 10 minutes of prep, 20 minutes of baking time, and are only 20 calories per truffle.
- Keto and Paleo-Friendly Chocolate Mousse
Avocados are again the secret ingredient in this dish to give the mousse its rich and creamy texture. To make it paleo, sub the heavy cream for coconut milk and sweeten either with honey or a sweetener like stevia.
- Fruit Salad
Use the natural sugars in fruit as a base for this best-tasting fruit salad. After prepping the fresh fruit, you’ll add a quarter cup of honey, the same amount of freshly squeezed orange juice, and the zest of one lemon to really send your taste buds soaring.
