Healthy Dessert Recipe #1: No-Bake Chocolate Peanut Butter Energy Ball

These little balls of yummies are my life saver. Not only do they satisfy my sweet cravings, they are also very handy as snacks. They keep me tied between meals whenever I get hungry, and  my pre-workout go-to. They are the healthy energy bites that keeps me going in my gym session.

Healthy Dessert Recipe #2: Chocolate Ice Cream a.k.a. “Chocolate Nice Cream”

I bet this question, “Can you make healthy ice cream?” is a common one. Ice cream is always known as being indulgent, so if it can be made nutritious and delicious, it is a definite win-win for everyone. Well well well, have you heard of nice cream? The new buzzword going around. And what is nice cream you ask? It is basically ice cream made healthy in short. Yep, they made a word for that. 😅  So.. here you go, this is my nice cream recipe.

Ingredients:

2 Frozen Bananas | 1 Medjool Date | 1 Tbsp Unsweetened Cocoa Powder | 250ml of Nutmilk of Your Choice | Toppings (Optional): Crushed Nuts | Coconut Flakes | Cinnamon Powder

Directions:

  1. Add all ingredients into a blender and process till smooth.
  2. Leave it in the refrigerator for 4 hours.
  3. Serve and enjoy!

Healthy Dessert Recipe #3: Homemade Healthy Chocolate Bar (or cubes)

Chocolate bars… where should I even begin…. If you know me, you know my go-to is the Lindt 85% Dark Chocolate Bar. But sometimes, I like making my own chocolate bars as well cos as much as i love Lindt, they do still have refined sugar in them! I have been experimenting with so many ingredients to make this healthy chocolate bar recipe work. They all just didn’t hit the mark until this one came along. And funny thing is, it has always been within my reach, my chocolate hazelnut spread. Why didn’t I think of this earlier? 😱

Ingredients:

The Pantry’s Chocolate Hazelnut Spread

Directions:

  1. Lay a baking paper on a flat tray or in an ice tray. Pour chocolate hazelnut spread onto tray. Spread it evenly.
  2. Place in freezer for 6 hours.
  3. Break them up (for bars) or remove chocolate from ice tray (for cubes) to serve and enjoy!

Healthy Dessert Recipe #4: Chocolate Mint Pudding

Now, this is what I call a refreshing dessert. For those who like a light sweet ending to a meal, this one is for you. Not only is this a dessert, this pudding is also a good healthy breakfast idea ✨💡✨💡✨  

P.s. You can skip the chia seeds if you’d to have it as a chocolate mint milkshake..

Ingredients:

2 Handful of Mint | 2 Tbsp Chocolate Hazelnut Spread | 250ml Nutmilk | 1 Medjool Date | ¼ Cup Chia Seeds

Directions:

  1. Add mint, chocolate hazelnut, nutmilk and medjool date in a blender. Process it till you get a smooth consistency.
  2. Add chia seeds into the mixture, stir and pour into a glass jar. Cover and refrigerate for 2 hours.
  3. Serve and enjoy!

P.s.To have this as a Chocolate Mint Milkshake, just add some ice cubes to step 1 and skip step 2 and 3.

Healthy Dessert Recipe #5: 3-Layer Fruit Parfait

This is my take on a healthy parfait. Instead of cream, let’s have it with our good ol’ gut-healthy greek yoghurt, topped with our amazing vitamin-rich fruits. We are celebrating fruits in this dessert and making them look glorious! This is great for those days where just having fruits on its own just doesn’t cut it….

Ingredients:

6 Heap Tbsp Greek Yoghurt | 1 Tbsp of honey | 3 Tbsp of Cubed Oranges and Red Apples | 3 Tbsp of Blueberries | 3 Tbsp of cubed Bananas | Topping (Optional): 1 Tbsp of Crushed Almonds & Sprinkle of Chia Seeds

Directions:

  1. Add yoghurt and honey into a bowl. Mix well.
  2. Layer bottom of glass with 2 heap tbsp of the yoghurt-honey mixture.
  3. Add oranges and apples on top. Sprinkle crushed almonds on top.
  4. Add another 2 heap tbsp of yoghurt honey mixture on that layer.
  5. Add blueberries, sprinkle crushed almonds on top.
  6. Add another 2 heap tbsp of yoghurt honey mixture on that layer.
  7. Add bananas, sprinkle remaining crushed almonds, and chia seeds to garnish.

There you go. My Top 5 Healthy Dessert Recipes. I think we’ve got a pretty good variety here; there are really decadent ones, coupled with few lighter options (good for if we already had a big dinner!) I’ve also some other healthy dessert ideas right here for you to try out. These are my go-tos as well..

Lindt Dark Chocolate with Peanut Butter

Pulut Hitam

Fresh Strawberries with Chocolate Hazelnut

 

Hope you guys will give them a try. If you’ve put your own twist on any of these recipes, definitely do let me know. I’m always looking out for ideas to spice up my meals 😋

Also, just wanted to leave with a note behind to remind y’all that “Moderation is Key”. I’ve fallen into the whole “I can eat more of it because these are good for me” before and ended up going overboard which isn’t healthy either.. These recipes are recipes which are nutritious and filled with wholesome ingredients, but overdoing anything even if they are good for you can cause harm.

Sugars; whether they are from sources that are processed or natural, are still sugar at the end of the day, and they do have an affect on our blood sugar level. So, definitely keep in mind to eat well, and feed your body what it really needs in the right quantity. #healthyrelationshipwithfood

Lots of love,
