5 One-Ingredient Healthy Dessert Recipes


- Advertisement -

Dessert isn’t a four-letter word, but if you talk to anyone trying to follow a healthy eating plan, they might treat it as one. That’s because desserts are well known for being high in added sugar, refined carbohydrates, unhealthy fats, and calories. Take ice cream, for example. Just 2/3 cup serving of Haagen Dazs vanilla bean ice cream contains 320 calories, 21 grams (g) fat, 13 g saturated fat, and 26 g of carbohydrates (all of them from sugar), and 18 g added sugar. And that’s if you stick to the recommended serving size! Because desserts tend to be so rich, it can be easy to go overboard if you enjoy dessert several days of the week, but no one wants to feel deprived either.

More than half of Americans — 57 percent— reported having dessert at least once a week, according to one past survey. If you’re also hoping not to derail your healthy eating for the day, making your own healthy dessert may be the best option.

While most people don’t have time in their day to make a homemade dessert from scratch, it’s hard to make that argument when the desserts in question only contain a single ingredient. That’s right, each of the following recipes will satisfy your sweet tooth with just one ingredient and minimal prep work. Plus, they feature whole fruits and vegetables, which everyone can always use more of in their day. Even if fruit alone isn’t usually enough to kill your dessert craving, these creative takes will do the trick.
