3 ingredient desserts that won't ruin your diet
Anyone who's trying to live a healthy lifestyle knows that eating clean can be challenging at first, especially when it comes to satisfying your sweet tooth. Sure, a piece of juicy, ripe fruit can be quite satisfying. But let's face it, it's only a matter of time before the craving for a bowl of creamy ice cream, or a warm chocolate chip cookie, gets so strong you're practically salivating every time you pass a bakery on the street corner.
Luckily, there are plenty of ways to indulge in dessert without completely sabotaging your healthy eating habits. The most effective: opting for homemade sweets. "Make it yourself instead of store-bought," Sadie Barr, director of Health and Sustainability for Hampton Creek Foods, told me in an interview. "This allows you to control the ingredients you put in your sweet treats and control the portion size."
In fact, with a little kitchen creativity, you can whip up a plethora of sweet treats that are, dare I say, both healthy and delicious. What's more, some of them can be made with as little as three ingredients! Here are 12 easy, three-ingredient dessert recipes that are approved by the experts.
