Not all sweets are bad! Most of us have a huge sweet tooth, but that shouldn't get in the way of our weight loss goals. There are so many healthy substitutes for traditional sweets that we can consume guilt free! We’re here to tell you some of our favorites.
Traditional Chocolate Mousse -> Avocado Mousse
Yup, that may sound odd, but we swear it tastes amazing and you will barely be able to tell the difference. The avocado in these chocolate mousses give the texture an extra creaminess. We even have a recipe here!
Classic Chocolate Shake -> Chocolate Covered Berry Shake
Who doesn't like chocolate covered fruit? Good news is that if berries aren't your fav, you can substitute any frozen fruit in this decedent recipe. (Hint: If you want a more chocolatey taste, add ICONIC Chocolate Truffle Powder in addition to the RTD shake) Look here!
Cup of Dirt -> Reduced Sugar Cup of Dirt
Ah, the classic cup of dirt recipe. Whether it's for you or your kid, this recipe will take you back to childhood days! With sugar free pudding and added protein, you can indulge in this without any guilt! Recipe here.
Chocolate Ice Cream -> Chocolate Protein Fluff
Protein fluff has a creamier texture than traditional ice cream as it has only 3 ingredients! You can blend your favorite frozen fruit of choice, milk, and chocolate protein powder to create this healthy (and protein packed) substitute! We have a recipe here.
Chocolate Truffles -> Homemade Protein Truffles
These are SUPER easy treats to make and are a great alternative to sugar filled candy. They can be made in minutes and will definitely satisfy your chocolate cravings. Our favorite recipe is linked here.
