Kids love eating desserts, but truth be told, many store-bought sweet treats are loaded with high sugar and fat content. And let’s not forget about preservatives and various additives. But there are certain healthy dessert items that your kids can relish all the time, without any guilt. Sounds exciting? So, let’s get started with the list.
1. Fruit Yogurt
Your kids will love this healthy dessert. And the best part is even your kids can make this no-fuss and quick dessert. Just add natural sweetener, fresh fruit puree, chunks of fresh fruit in the thick or hung yogurt and tada! the guilt-free dessert is ready to be devoured.
2. Dates Covered in Chocolate
Kids love almost anything covered in chocolate. So, why not dip dates in chocolates? For this guilt-free dessert, all you need is soft Medjool dates, some crunchy peanut butter, and melted milk or dark chocolate, based on your kid’s preference. Now, carefully deseed the date without cutting it into two halves, fill the center with a dollop of peanut butter, and seal the date. Then dip the filled dates in some melted chocolate and refrigerate for 30 minutes before enjoying with your family.
3. Banana ‘Nice’ Cream
This is a healthier and quicker version of ice cream that will leave your kids asking for more. Just slice and freeze few bananas and blend them until you get a smooth and creamy texture. Add sweetness, if needed. To make Banana ‘nice’ cream even tastier, top the ice cream with dried fruit, chopped nuts, chocolate chips, or sprinkles and drizzle some melted chocolate on it.
4. Cinnamon Apple
Cinnamon and apple are a match made in heaven. The spice adds natural sweetness, eliminating the need to add extra sugar. To make a delicious cinnamon apple, cut the apple into slices, sprinkle some cinnamon, and heat it until the apple turns nice and soft. You can either leave the skin on or peel the apple if your little one likes it better that way. And finally, if you want, add a small dollop of whipped cream for some decadence.
5. Chia Seed Pudding
This creamy and healthy dessert is perfect for everyone. It is made by mixing chia seeds and almond milk. You can even add fresh fruits, seeds, or nuts for added health benefits.
6. Yogurt or Fruit Juice Pops
If your kids love yogurt, they will love this combination. Just add yogurt, little water, any healthy sweetener, and puree of your kid’s favorite fruit in the blender and mix it till it all comes together. Simply pour this mixture into a popsicle mold and freeze. Similarly, you can make juice pops by adding some sweetness to your fresh fruit juice, and pouring the juice into the molds or ice cube trays before freezing.
