Guilt-Free Healthy Sweet That Will Satisfy Your Sweet Tooth

In almost every Indian household, there is no meal complete without a small bite or piece of dessert. Sometimes, we can’t even wait till we finish the meal so that we can indulge in straight for the desert on the table. Festive occasions, off-course, give us great excuse to eating sweets that are rich, flavourful and brimmed with sweetness.

Often time our attention goes towards planning healthy meals for the day, that we rarely give a second thought about mid-day snacking or post meal cravings. So, when cravings or hunger strikes in, we tend to eat anything that we lay our eyes on or have at home. And in such a situation, even if we end up having a small bite of it, we are galloped with guilt and have done the damage. But here’s some good news for those out there with a sweet tooth who looking for something healthy to satisfy their sweet cravings:

Peanut and Jaggery Chikki

Peanuts are considered as an excellent source of vegetarian protein. Meanwhile, jaggery, which is found in most Indian kitchens, is loaded with antioxidants, iron and other nutrients. It’s a healthier alternative to refined sugar. Additionally, Jaggery is packed with antioxidants that helps build the immunity and further keep diseases away. Together when these ingredients are combined they make a chikki. A combination that is heathy and delicious at the same time. Not to forget, the chikki also has delightful brittle texture. You can either have it as a dessert or an on-the-go snack too.

Chia Seed Pudding

Chia seeds contain 17 gram of protein per 100 gram serving. Moreover, they are a complete protein, that is, containing all the nine essential amino acids that cannot be made by the body. Combined with fibre- and potassium-rich banana, the pudding also makes for a healthy breakfast option for those who wish to kick-start their day on a sweet note.

Dark Chocolate

Chocolate is the last ingredient to come to anyone’s mind when they’re thinking of ‘healthy foods’. Research, however, suggests that dark chocolate is nutritious and has protein too. When had in moderate amounts, its antioxidant properties may reduce the risk of heart disease and diabetes among other benefits.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Dates and Nuts Bars

Dates are not only a good source of protein but also loaded with vitamins and minerals. They have natural fructose content, so they are a good substitute for refined sugar and they can fuel your body with energy. The no-bake bars, when laced with a mix of walnuts, pistachios or hazelnuts, will give you an additional protein boost. The best part is that you can enjoy these bars not only as an after-meal dessert but also as a pre-workout snack, a munchie between meals or even as a quick bite on your daily commute.

Yogurt Parfait

Who said yogurt can only be had plain or as raita? Rich in protein, yogurt can also be used to whip up non-messy parfait jars by simply layering it up with toasted oats and nuts such as pecans and almonds. Regular yogurt can be substituted with Greek yogurt that contains healthy fats and may help you feel fuller for longer.

So, the next time you crave a sweet but are worried about weight gain, fear not. Instead of striking out desserts from your meals completely, satisfy your desire with these healthy yet flavourful alternatives. They’re sure to calm your sweet cravings at the same time boost your nutrition levels and ensure your physical wellbeing too.
