The decision to switch to a proper diet is difficult for most people, because it involves getting rid of many habits that have been with the person for many years. But perhaps the most painful is giving up sweets. Nevertheless, the stereotypical statement that desserts are absolutely contraindicated in a healthy diet is mistaken, because there are many recipes for healthy sweets, which not only do not harm the body in any way, but also become an additional source of useful substances.
Of course, we are not talking about the usual cakes and pastries with lots of sugar, white wheat flour and other simple carbohydrates, which do not bring almost any good, except for deposits in the form of fat on the sides. Instead, you should prefer sweet dishes based on fruit, cottage cheese, whole wheat flour, oat or corn flour, bran, nuts, dried fruits and other products that are good for the body.
We offer some simple recipes for sweets, which are the best for sweet eaters who adhere to the principles of proper nutrition. In addition to the obvious benefits, such desserts are also very easy to perform.
Strawberry and banana ice cream
This extremely easy-to-make dessert will appeal to all lovers of refreshing fruit ice cream, which is good to indulge in the summer heat. Instead of banana and strawberries, you can use other fruits and berries that are available.
Prepare the fruit: clean the strawberries from the tails, wash them, peel the bananas. All cut into medium sized pieces and put in the freezer for several hours. Chop the frozen fruit in a blender, add a little honey to the mixture. The ice cream can be eaten immediately, or you can keep it in the freezer a little longer.
Cheese and banana dessert
Cottage cheese is one of the healthiest foods, which is why it often appears in all diets and recipes for proper nutrition. This dessert is no exception – easy-to-make cakes are sure to please your taste.
So, you will need:
220 g of low-fat cottage cheese;
100 gr banana;
An apple – 1 piece;
50 grams of prunes;
50 grams of whole-grain oat flakes;
40 g of any nuts;
15 g of cocoa powder.
Peel the apple and grate it on a fine grater. Mash banana and cottage cheese in a blender until smooth. Soak prunes in boiling water for a minute, then cut into small pieces and add them to the cheese-apple mixture. Grind oat flakes into flour with a coffee grinder, mix with cacao and stir into the mass using a blender. The dessert is almost ready – the only thing left is to put it in nice cups, sprinkle with nuts, pre-chopped, decorate with berries and put in the fridge for a couple or three hours.
