Sometimes you need to pamper yourself. But why sacrifice that waist if you don’t have to? Make your own sugar-free alternatives that are so decadent you won’t even taste the difference.
1. Raw grain-free, high-protein cookie dough
There’s no better pleasure in life than eating cookie dough right out of the box, right? Unfortunately, it’s not very good for your health because of the dangers of raw eggs, and it’s also full of sugar. This alternative has the same taste, but is high in protein, grain-free and sugar-free. Voila!
2. Samoa Girl Scout Cookie Pie
Everyone knows that the best cookie for Boy Scouts is Samoa. Chocolatey, crunchy and fruity, all in one bite. Now it’s made a whole cake out of it, and it’s kind of healthy! Using coconut milk and butter, coffee, honey, avocado, and cocoa powder, this author has created something insanely magical.
3. New York style cheesecake
Ah Creamy New York Cheesecake Style Decadence. Unfortunately, we only get to indulge once in a blue moon thanks to his sweet nature. To this useful remix, in which sugar is replaced by stevia liquid and vanilla whey protein powder.
4. Apple pie without sugar
Apples may traditionally be a Thanksgiving treat, but you’d be crazy to think they’re only edible during a certain season. Perfect when sprinkled with a dollop of sugar-free whipped cream. The natural sweetness of apples is what makes this recipe brilliant, so make sure you use sweet apples like Honeycrisp.
5. Homemade peach ice cream
There is something about peach ice cream that just embodies the essence of summer. It is light, cooling and fruity. And there’s a two-ingredient version that’s dairy-free and sugar-free. With just a couple of cups of frozen peach slices and coconut milk, you’re good to go.
6. Sugar Free Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups
Throw away all those processed Reese’s Pieces because this vegan peanut butter cup recipe is a million times better and sugar-free. Using unrefined ingredients like coconut oil, stevia and vanilla extract, they mimic the real deal. Plus, peanut butter makes everything delicious.
7. Chocolate and strawberry truffle cake
This cake is somehow fun, whimsical and wholesome all at the same time. A cheeky riff on chocolate and strawberry, most of this cake is actually made in a Vitamix. Goodbye, full load of dishes. Blitz the frozen berries, raw cashews, and stevia together with the cocoa powder in a blender before pouring into a pie crust and freezing overnight.
8. DIY Mo-tella Fudge Protein Bars
If this is what a protein bar looks like, then sign up for a protein-filled week. Using roasted hazelnuts, vanilla almond milk, and brown chocolate protein powder makes this the best portable snack we’ve ever seen. And to think that they are rich in protein, fiber, complex carbohydrates and healthy fat? Miracles are possible.
9. Black bean brownies
Black beans belong in a burrito, right? A lie. They make the base of a luscious brownie fondant, and anyone who says otherwise clearly hasn’t tried them. This recipe makes eating the whole pan not just embarrassing, but a real possibility of not hating yourself the next day.
10. Mini pies with chocolate mousse without baking
These patties are small in size, but there is definitely no flavor. With an oat base, they’re filled with cacao, coconut, dates, edible watermelon seeds, and the main ingredient: avocado! You can eat this before your workout and still feel energized for hours – how cool is that?
