Beauties, let’s be honest, every once in a while we all get a craving for something sweet. Now, the question here is, what do you do about it? Rather than reaching for the nearest sugar- laden candy bar, I challenge you to opt for one of my Guilt-Free Sweet Treats! By using naturally sweet foods like dates, coconut, or acai, you can avoid the harsh side effects of sugar on your system.
More importantly, you don’t have to feel guilty indulging in any of these bites. You deserve to treat yourself to something delightful from time to time. And with so many delicious Guilt-Free Sweet Treats to choose from, I hope you can find at least one that will satisfy your sweet tooth.
Poppy Seed & Date Energy Squares
It can be difficult to find a yummy bar that isn’t loaded with processed junk. So why not make your own! My Poppy Seed & Date Energy Squares are packed with protein, essential omega fats, minerals, and vitamins. And, thanks to the precious Medjool dates, they are nice and sweet!
Medjool dates are a great substitute for any addiction to sweet foods. Their high fiber content helps to keep you full longer, while also providing you with a natural energy boost! What a sweet gift nature from nature right!?
Creamy Pineapple Ice Cream
Now ice cream is one of those treats that can get my mouth watering! But I am not talking about that store-bought, dairy, and processed sugar-packed stuff. Why eat ice cream that causes bloating, acne and digestive issues? No thank you!
What I am talking about is a super creamy bowl of delicious nutritiously packed goodness! Like my Creamy Pineapple Ice Cream recipe. Yes, Beauty, this is an ice cream recipe that is good for you. One that you can have zero feelings of guilt treating yourself or serving up the family with.
End Of Summer Acai Fruit Popsicles
One of my favorite ways to satisfy a sweet tooth is to reach for these End of Summer Acai Fruit Popsicles. Indulging in one of these yummy pops, that is full of antioxidants, minerals and vitamins takes you a bliss that no other popsicle can reach. How so, you wonder?
Well, thanks to the beautiful nutrients of acai, lemon, and blueberry, treating yourself to one these popsicles promotes your vitality in so many ways! Brightening your skin, nourishing your hair, and keeping your digestive system clean are just a few of the perks from these guilt-free sweet treats. Check out the recipe to learn more!
Sweet White Peach Pie Smoothie
You likely know about my reasons of why I am such a huge advocate of starting your day off with a Glowing Green Smoothie. Sometimes, after a hard day’s work, it’s so delightful to treat yourself to another smoothie. This is the time of day when it can be really fun to get creative with your smoothie recipe!
One of my favorite ways to do this is to make a smoothie that reminds me of something so tasty, but that I wouldn’t typically reach for. For example, my yummy Sweet White Peach Pie Smoothie has all the amazing flavor of peach pie without all the yuckiness of gluten-filled bloating cruse or unnecessary sugar added fillers. Who needs that?
Vanilla & Chocolate Avocado Pudding
Pudding is such a savory treat and it is one that too often goes forgotten. That is probably because the only pudding people think of is one that comes out of a box and contains absolutely zero health benefits. Well Beauty, let me tell you that you can actually make a pudding that not only is good for you but also that tastes divine!
Enter my Vanilla Chocolate Avocado Pudding recipe. Healthy plant oils from the avocado make this recipe super moisturizing for your skin. It also has anti-inflammatory properties thanks to the vanilla and the antioxidants from the cacao. Now whoever thought pudding could be so beauty enhancing. :)
Vegan Creamsicle Coconut Cookies
Everyone can relate to loving a delicious homemade cookie. Instead of making your next batch of cookies from an old school recipe that is likely filled with not so good ingredients, treat yourself to my Vegan Creamsicle Coconut Cookie recipe.
They are 100% vegan, gluten-free and are naturally sweet from dates and maple syrup. You can top them off with tasty coconut flakes, which help them burst with flavor. These cookies are the ultimate guilt-free sweet treats to offer up to your friends and family! And you can feel good sharing them as they contain no beauty busting white flour, refined sugar, dairy, or improperly combined ingredients.
Now that you have a list of my top favorite Guilt-Free Sweet Treats I hope that you can feel good knowing so many different options to choose from the next time your sweet tooth strikes!
