We took another poll of the staff here at GMM for their favorite healthier dessert-of-the-moment, and we got some really creative responses that are making our mouths water. (You’ll find the recipes at the end of the post!)
Q: It’s February, which means Valentine’s Day and goodies for our favorite loved ones! What is at the top of your list for your favorite healthier treat of the moment?
Jess: Berries and Cream Parfait for a super-easy fro-yo fix. Need to tone down the sweet factor? Sub a Greek Yogurt to up the protein and add some tang!
Harmony: “Chocolate Smoothie a la Harmony!” Milkshakes are loaded with fat and refined sugars, but this is a natural alternative with an equally delicious taste.
Katherine: Cheese and jam on toast! This is a seriously underrated dessert for all of us sweet/salty food fans.
Laura: Banana Milk. This shake is a good source of calcium, fiber and vitamin C. There are also no added sugars and it is low in fat. The banana creates a super thick, rich treat, and it is also a way healthier substitute for a milkshake, even though my taste buds don’t know the difference. Banana milk is also a great way to use up the extra bananas I have hanging out in my freezer that were starting to get too ripe. Since I always have milk on hand, it’s super convenient and a breeze to make!
Sule: Chuice. Fresh, delicious, fruit and veggie juices with an added crunch. It may sound odd, but tasting is believing.
