These healthy dessert ideas still have the same rich flavor as your favorite recipes, but they use a few tricks to make them more nutritious. Examples include replacing whole milk with skim or almond milk, using sugar free alternatives (like light Cool Whip or Splenda), and adding fresh fruit to the recipes. This way, you can enjoy the same sweet, comforting texture of the original treats, without packing on the pounds. How could you say no to that?

We've featured a wide variety of healthy dessert recipes, including pies, cakes, cookies and dessert bars. There are enough sweets to use for every occasion. We listed some traditional dessert recipes, like Healthy Pecan Almond Toffee and Strawberry Shortcake, but we've also listed some recipes with a unique twist, like The Apple Pie Remix and The Banana Split Icebox Cake.

All of these healthy dessert ideas are quick and easy to make, and are guaranteed to be enjoyed by you and your family all year round. You can have your cake and eat it too...without feeling guilty about it!
