If you’ve tasted healthy dessert recipes and have decided you would rather eat the bottom of your shoe, then this article is for you! It is true that when you are hoping to lose some weight, sugar is the first substance that needs to go.

Alcohol is the second. So that rum cake you have your eyes on? Well, unfortunately it is a double no-no.

But just because you shouldn’t eat full-fat, full-sugar dessert on a regular basis, that doesn’t mean that you can’t doctor up a few staples in order to satiate that sweet tooth without stretching out that waistline or compromising taste.

Some of us are so conditioned to super sweet desserts that it may take some detoxifying to truly appreciate what a healthy dessert is. But don’t let that get in the way of developing a beautiful relationship with healthy dessert.

This all begins with a fundamental understanding of what a truly healthy diet is all about. While sacrifice- those Little Debbie’s and Ho-Ho’s need the heave-ho- is a trademark of a healthy lifestyle, that sacrifice doesn’t have to be all doom and gloom.

Two Reasons that Healthy Desserts Are Worth the Sacrifice of Sugar for your Diet Program

The Diet Solution Strawberry Shortcake and Chocolate Cookies are the only two reasons you need to discover that giving up the mounds of sugar for a more svelte self is not a sacrifice at all! Here are some tips when it comes to making healthy dessert.

Switch out white flour for coconut flour. Swap sugar for raw honey or Stevia. These two simple changes can make an otherwise dangerous dessert as little slice of heaven for your mouth and your thighs.
