Eating Healthier this 2014: DESSERTS

Putting the words “healthy” and “dessert” together can come across as a paradox. Desserts are sweet and scrumptious and heavenly, but have little to no nutritional value whatsoever. But since we just started a brand new year, it’s time to adapt to a healthy lifestyle with desserts!

Here are some of the healthiest, most scrumptious sweets that should be included in the menu of every catering in Manila.

Strawberry Shortcake

Notice that this recipe has more strawberries, a seemingly lighter cake, and less whipped cream. You get the yummy dessert without all the fattening ingredients.

This heavy-looking cake is actually made of Greek yogurt, olive oil, egg whites, and whole-wheat flour instead of the staple ingredients, making this cake a nourishing one!

They may look deep fried, but when baked well, raspberry crumb squares have a nice tart flavor to go with the crunch of the crumbs.

Cream Cheese Brownies

The trick to eating these goodies is to limit the portions you have, even if the brownies only have three grams of saturated fat intake per serving.

This unique kind of banana bread mixes the flavor of the fruit with chocolate. Not only is it a delightful melody of flavors, but also a visual wonder to behold.

One look at this parfait and you can tell it’s healthy. The whipped cream and strawberry are masterfully blended together. Be sure to have small servings so that it remains healthy. Remember that too much of a good thing is bad.

How can a pie as sinful as this be nutritious? Only if you use fat-free dairy products and egg whites for the batter, bringing down the cholesterol to two grams.

To interest children in healthy treats, you have to disguise them with desserts. The secret to these cookies are the crushed flax seeds. They’ll never know the difference.

Fruit Pizza

Imagine a variety of fruits like blueberries, kiwis, and bananas on a bed of sourdough and whipped cream. That is what you call a fruit pizza! Be the envy of all your party guests when you bring this healthy kind of “pizza” to get-togethers.
