9 Healthy Desserts So You Can Have Your Cake & Your New Year's Resolutions, Too
Sticking to those New Year’s resolutions have been easier said than done. It’s easy to let healthy eating habits and exercising fall by the way side, but we’ve found it’s been much easier to keep with it when we’re still able to eat super yummy foods.
You’ve heard it all before. Eating healthy doesn’t have to mean sacrificing taste — we know, we know. But, honestly, it’s so true.
And you don’t have to take our word for it, either. These desserts speak for themselves. The key to keeping within your diet while still getting a sweet treat is to find desserts that are packed full of fruits and veggies (even if it’s secretly). Did you know you could make brownies using avocados? Right?! Another great sign of a healthier dessert is one that’s dairy free. Vegan options really take a ton of the sugar and added calories out of these goodies.
So, check out this round-up of recipes and see if you don’t change the way you eat dessert for the better in 2017. It’s never too late to get back to those resolutions. You’ve still got 11 months to go, after all!

Aquafaba is (apparently) the liquid you normally discard when cooking with chickpeas. But, that liquid allows this recipe to come to life. That, along with raw chocolate and coconut nectar. I'd be willing to give this a try for sure. Especially since it looks like the most decadent mousse ever.
