Serving as the ultimate indulgence for many across the globe, chocolate desserts have always been something loved by all.
While chocolate will always be the star of the show, the added sugar and fat that these desserts may sometimes contain, might not be the best option for everyone. For those who are on a diet and wish to take better care of their health, finding tasty alternatives is the only way to still be able to enjoy sweets.
Whilst there are delicious sugar-free chocolates and vegan options available, there’s nothing that can truly replace dessert. If healthy desserts are what you’re looking for, we’ve got you covered.
Since we know all there is to know about chocolate, we’ve used our expertise to compile a list of healthy chocolate desserts that everyone can try out.
Let’s take a look!
Most of us assume that healthy desserts have a less delicious flavour, however, this is far from true. With so many recipes for both delicious and healthy chocolate desserts, you don’t have to settle for anything unappetising. Chocolate pudding cake is one such idea that you can consider.
A cross between gooey pudding and healthy chocolate cake, this delicious chocolate dessert is the perfect way to satisfy your sweet cravings. All you need to do is substitute the sugar and fat with healthier alternatives such as honey or other sweeteners. Add in a pop of freshness with some delicious berries or cherries and you’re good to go!
Another delicious chocolate dessert that you can add to your list of healthy desserts, is chocolate cake pops. Cake pops are a fun take on cake that allow you to get creative and indulge in bite-sized pops made of soft sponge and coated with an edible garnish. The trick here is to substitute the ingredients with healthier alternatives, like almond flour, bananas and Greek yoghurt.
You can melt your preferred type of chocolate and pair your favourite flavour profiles with this. You can add fondant flowers, sprinkles or other types of topping to make your cake look even more delicious.
We’re all aware of the numerous health benefits of choosing dark chocolate. From improving blood pressure to providing you with antioxidants, it can be a great way to stay healthy while also treating yourself to something indulgent.
For your chocolate pudding recipe, you can opt for ingredients like soy milk and dark chocolate chips, with a tiny bit of vanilla extract for an enhanced chocolate flavour.
From boosting your metabolism to improving your gut health, the benefits of eating Greek yoghurt are plentiful. This makes the ingredient perfect for those trying to eat healthier. Add your Greek yoghurt to a chocolate mousse recipe and voila – you have a healthy chocolate dessert that you can indulge in guilt-free.
Adding a slight tang to the rich, healthy chocolate mousse, this airy and light treat can be your new favourite post-dinner dessert.
Brownies are one of the best comfort foods of all time and with so many delicious recipes available, making healthy brownies is now possible and with several flavours to choose from too.
While there’s nothing quite like our indulgent brownies, which are handmade every day, if you’re looking to attempt making your own, you can opt for a healthier recipe using cane juice and almond flour.
To make these brownies a little more special, create a delicious cream cheese frosting with a dash of orange zest. Add to your baked brownies and your delicious, healthy treats are ready!
Chocolate and raspberries are one of the best flavour combinations and will always remain iconic. With so many delicious ways to use this combination, there are several quick and easy desserts to whip up with these ingredients.
This easy and extremely delicious recipe includes chocolate frozen yoghurt, mixed with raspberry yoghurt and fresh berries. Sprinkle a few roasted almonds on top and you’re almost done. Instead of using traditional frozen yoghurt, opt for soy milk mixed with tofu and you’re good to go.
Our compiled list of healthy chocolate desserts lets you experience the best of healthy chocolate options, without having to compromise on flavours. That said, if you’re looking for delicious gourmet chocolates that are sugar-free or vegan, we have you covered too.
With our incredible range of sugar-free chocolates, you won’t have to settle for something simple anymore. We also have a collection of delicious gourmet chocolates that cater to every palate.
