My Favorite Easy To Make Desserts

on February 17, 2013

While we don’t eat dessert every day, my three year olds are asking for it more often, and though I used to get away with just serving some fresh fruit, I now get the death stare when I try to pass fruit off as a “yummy” dessert.  They’ve wised up now.  They know the game.  I do have some ready made “go-to’s” like Granola Bites (of course) and Pro Bugs Frozen Kefir Pops, but I have been trying to make some homemade desserts where I can control the sugar and nutrition.  Here are a few healthy ones that I have tried.  They are all quick and easy to make, and all of them are absolutely delicious, for kids and adults!

1. Chocolate Peanut Butter Banana Bites – These are OUT OF THIS WORLD!  When I saw this recipe, I literally made it the same day and we ate them all, the same day.  I used dark chocolate and added chia seeds to the peanut butter mixture.  If you have a nut allergy, use sun flower butter. Thank you Yummy Mummy for sharing this amazing recipe!

2. Chocolate Avocado Pudding – I know, I know, it’s a tough one to imagine.  But trust me when I tell you that no one will even suspect the avocado! Try it with berries on top, or some homemade whip cream!  Delicious.  I followed this recipe and used agave as a sweetner.

3. Stove Top Apple Crisp – A super easy dessert that you can make in a few minutes, I made it with apples and pears, sauteed them in coconut oil, and topped with a small scoop of vanilla ice cream.  We all loved it, check out the recipe.

What are some of your favorite, easy desserts?
