You don’t have to skip dessert when you’re Clean eating, and these Clean eating desserts show just how good pudding can be on a Real food diet.
Not skipping dessert can be the difference between making eating Clean sustainable and not being able to make it a long term thing.
There was no way either my family or I would have been able to kiss goodbye to a pudding every now and again when we over hauled our diets. And we didn’t have to. Neither did we quit sugar, we simply changed the processed, chemically sweeteners for natural sugar alternatives, and you can see which ones I use in my recipes here.
Healthy Dessert Recipes
You’ll find that for many desserts, with a little thought, you can recreate a Cleaner, healthier version that the kids will hardly notice has been ‘cleaned up’.
These recipes below are healthier versions of the puddings you’ll likely already be familiar with. Enjoy :)
This Clean eating chocolate brownie is all the things you want a brownie to be: It’s gooey, rich and super chocolatey.
The processed sugars you find in regular chocolate brownies have been replaced with date paste and ground Almond flour keeps these little beauties deliciously moist.
These are far better than store bought brownies. I cannot imagine a single kid complaining about being given one of these!
This is a decadent Real food dessert, summery and sweet.
This uses fresh cream and ripe Strawberry’s as it’s base, and sets beautifully into a classic summer pudding in the fridge.
You can change the fruit to any you have, or prefer, and you’ll get a Clean, yummy pudding everyone loves.
Who doesn’t love Apple Crumble? This is a super popular dessert in this house and one that’s made maybe slightly too often. With added berries you get more fruit variety and if your kids are anything like mine, a crumble on anything is generally a good thing.
It’s proper comfort food at it’s best and this Cleaned up healthier version is no exception. Using Maple syrup and coconut sugar in moderation keep this sweet, and we serve this with custard (see recipe below) or fresh cream. Either way, totally delicious!
This dairy free Clean eating custard is perfect with the Apple Berry Crumble above, or pretty much anything else!
It’s really very easy to make, takes only minutes and at only 96 Calories a serve you can pour it over homemade apple crumble for the ultimate, guilt free dessert.
This classic French recipe is creamy and smooth, and this Clean eating recipe skips the heavy cream.
Use these tricks to get a silky smooth Brulee, and you’d never know this delicious recipe has been ‘Cleaned’ up.
