Ah, dessert, the nightmare of all diets. It doesn’t matter if we are trying to lose pounds or just eat better, the idea of cookies, chocolate cake, pudding, fudge, cake, and all other sugary stuff is usually enough to throw caution to the wind. Our sweet tooths are sometimes our worst enemy, and it really takes an almost inhuman effort to stand up to the butter-chocolate covered pancakes and not budge. Who could resist all that tasty goodness?
Well, luckily, now you don’t have to. Even dessert can be healthy if you use the right organic ingredients to make it, and best of all, it will be just as delicious. Ready for some delicious recipes?
Tangerine and Chocolate pudding dessert
This dessert recipe is completely vegan and completely delicious.

- Add coconut milk and mix until thick and smooth.
- Peel some tangerines and place the slices in small baking pans, then pour over the mixture on top.
- You can add more cocoa powder and brown sugar on top of each pudding, and then pour a little boiling water over them.

Chocolate cake with Raspberry and Chia jam
Healthy chocolate cake? Yes, absolutely. And it’s not even difficult to do!
- Basically, you start the same way you would if you were making a regular cake: beat the egg yolks and sugar.
- The trick here is to use unrefined raw sugar and keep whisking until the mixture doubles, and slowly sift the cocoa powder.
- Add the melted chocolate, add the beaten egg whites and make sure you don’t overload the mix because it will lose its airy texture.
- Once you pour all of this into cake pans and bake it, you can let it cool and spread a mixture of organic raspberry jam and chia seeds in between each layer.
- Of course, you can feel free to be creative and use any type of jam you want: plum, strawberry, peach, everything works.
A slice of this cake is tasty, and its sweetness is not overwhelming. It will satisfy your craving without having to feel guilty about it later. This dessert can also be served on Birthdays and other occasions.
Panela glazed donuts
Donuts aren’t really something you ever imagined to be healthy, but if you use the right ingredients, they can be a good snack. Most desserts can be greatly improved by using quality sustainable food.
- This recipe will also require some organic quinoa flour and panela sugar.
- It will start by dissolving a little bit of dry yeast instantly and sugar in warm milk, and then sift the flour, a little salt, a little xanthan gum, and cornmeal.
- Beat two eggs and mix with melted butter and vanilla extract there, then add the liquids to the dry ingredients.
- Use a mixer to get a smooth dough and watch out for lumps, then pour into ring molds.
- Leave this for about half an hour until it doubles in size, and then bake in the oven until golden brown.
- As you can see, there is no frying here at all.
It’s a great dessert to serve it at kids’ birthday parties or prepare it when you just crave something sweet and tasty that won’t ruin your good eating habits.
Coconut and walnut cookies
This is a great thing if you want to have a healthy snack on hand. It’s better to have some organic cookies out there than to look for a milk chocolate bar or store-bought cookies.
- This recipe uses coconut milk, quinoa flour, and organic panela sugar, it is a much better alternative for all the sugar demons.
- You start by whisking vegan margarine and brown sugar, then add baking soda and coconut milk.
- Add a little homemade golden syrup if you want more sweetness, mix everything well, and then press the chopped nuts into the mixture.
- Use a scoop of ice cream to put the cookies on a baking sheet, and voila! They only need about 20-25 minutes in the oven over low heat and then you can let them cool down and put them in a large bowl.
It is a great candy/dessert to make if you have children because it gives them a nice and healthy alternative to cookies.
Eating healthy should not mean a lifetime of denying yourself your favorite food. Even desserts can be made more nutritious, so don’t be afraid to experiment a little with these recipes, find something you like, and then enjoy yourself without blame.
