I enjoy a good dessert every now and then, but I can't bring myself to eat store-bought or restaurant-made desserts. The poor quality of the ingredients takes the joy out of these treats. Through trial and error, I have gathered a few dessert recipes that are nutritious, delicious and guilt free.

  • Choose the least-processed ingredients possible, preferably organic
  • Unsalted nuts and seeds
  • Sugar from fruit, honey and maple syrup
  • Sea salt or pink Himalayan salt
  • Coconut oil
  • Natural and unsweetened chocolate powder
  • Any food processor with a large opening

Note: Most of these desserts contain a mix of protein, carbohydrates and fat, unlike popular desserts that are full of fat and sugar. As a result, the texture and sweetness depend on the ripeness of the fruit you use, so you might need to adjust the recipes accordingly.
