As long as you have frozen bananas, this dessert can be made in about five minutes flat. Any time you find yourself with bananas a little too ripe, peel and cut them in half and throw them in a sandwich bag and into the freezer. When you’re ready for your frozen treat, you simply puree the frozen bananas (with a splash of plain almond milk) in a food processor or blender. They are tasty as is, or you can add in your favorite toppings like peanut butter, cocoa powder, coconut flakes, or chocolate chips. Even the kids will gobble up this sweet treat!4 Quick and Easy Healthy Dessert Recipes That Will Satisfy Your Sweet Tooth! Click To Tweet
When looking for healthy dessert recipes, look no further. This dessert is not only delicious and refreshing, it’s beautiful, too! Chop up any fruit of your choosing into bite size pieces. The best combination is usually a mix up of various berries- strawberries, blueberries, and blackberries, for example. In a separate bowl, whip together some whole fat plain, vanilla, or honey Greek yogurt mixed with an equal amount of whipped topping (Truwhip is a great natural alternative to traditional whipped cream). Combine the fruit and the cream mix into individual bowls and serve- and be ready for zero leftovers!
While this dessert is super quick to make, it does need to sit for a little while, so you will need to plan ahead. It is a delicious vegan alternative to pudding, especially for those who enjoy the fun texture of rice pudding. You can use about ¼ of a cup of chia seeds, slowly whipping them into about two cups of coconut, soy, or almond milk. Allow the mixture to sit in the fridge for a few hours. When you’re ready to eat it, you can add in your favorite toppings- chopped fruit, maple syrup, vanilla extract, granola, etc. This also makes a great grab-and-go breakfast!
