Healthy Desserts

Eating healthy doesn't mean you need to cut out desserts, because there are desserts combinations that are healthy and taste wonderful. Fruits are ideal healthy desserts because they are refreshing, light and the perfect ending to a nice dinner or lunch.

You can also use fruit as toppings for things like angel food cake, yogurt, sherbets, and even Jell-O puddings made with low fat milk. Here a few more healthy dessert ideas.

Healthy Smoothies

Smoothies make an easy dessert with endless combinations and possibilities. Combine your favorite fruits in a blender with fresh fruit juice, ice and a small squirt of honey. Blend to the consistency you like and you've got a great tasting smoothie. You can have fun experimenting with different fruit combinations to find your favorites.

If you want even more flavor, leave the ice out and freeze some of the fruit before blending. You can also add a small amount of low fat frozen yogurt to these recipes with frozen fruits that tastes more like an ice cream dessert.

Grilled Desserts

Here is another idea for a simple and healthy dessert. Try grilling some fresh fruit on the grill. Hard fruits like peaches, pineapples and even plums work really well.

Just clean the fruit, take any seeds out, slice peaches and plums in half and slice pineapple in one inch think rounds. Place the fruits on a hot grill and the heat will bring out the natural sugars. Grill for about one to two minutes and take the fruit off of the heat.

You can enjoy them as is because grilling concentrates the sugars and add a wonderful flavor through caramelization. You can also serve grilled fruits over sherbet or frozen yogurt for a delicious and healthy dessert.

For a grilled fruit sauce, blend plain yogurt, a squeeze of lime juice, a tablespoon of honey and fold it all together. Then, drizzle the sauce over the grilled fruit. It's fresh, easy and makes an incredibly dessert.

Mango Strawberry Snow Cones

Put 2 mangoes, peeled and chopped and 1 pint of sliced strawberries into a blender or food processor. Squeeze in the juice of one lime and puree. Crush ice in a food processor or blender until it is very fine. Pile the crushed ice into dessert dishes and pour the fruit puree over until you can't see any more white ice.

Baked Pears with Cranberries and Walnuts

Place 3 ripe but firm pears, peeled, cored and quartered in a baking dish. Drizzle 1/3 cup pomegranate juice over pears. Sprinkle 1/2 cup dried cranberries and 1/4 cup chopped walnuts over the top. Bake for 20 minutes, or until pears are tender. This also makes a tasty and healthy dessert topping on low fat frozen vanilla yogurt.

Blackberry and Peach Crunch

Mix 2 cups peach slices, 2 cups blackberries and 1 cup of granola in a bowl. Spread evenly into a buttered 9 x 9 baking dish. Bake for 30 minutes or until brown and bubbly. Allow to cool for 10 minutes. Sprinkle with 1/2 cup toasted almonds and serve.
