A dessert with benefits? Yes, it’s possible to satisfy your sweet craving with real foods (that have benefits!) and without refined sugar (which does not!).
No Refined Sugar
As you know, I’m not a fan of refined sugar. I haven’t used it in my own home for years, and stay as far away from it as humanely possible (read, I know when I’m dining out, chefs often use sugar, even in savory dishes, so I’m sure I have ingested it over the years, but I try to avoid it whenever I can).
But, that doesn’t mean I never eat dessert…it means I use better-for-you ingredients and unrefined sweeteners. Two of my all time favorite dessert recipes include this Banana N’Ice Cream (sweetened only with banana) and this Chocolate Truffle recipe (sweetened only with dates).
But, if you don’t feel like breaking out the Vitamix or just want to have something on hand for the kids, these new Paleo Passion Pops can be a good option for you.
