6 Healthy Dessert Ideas for Your Next Family Cook-Out

Summer is almost here, and with summertime comes family cook-outs. Family get togethers can be full of fun and joy, but just don’t feel quite complete without food and dessert. If you’re trying to get your family to eat more healthy, Healthy Little Cooks wants you to know that you don’t have to rid your family of enjoying desserts altogether to be “healthy”. There are healthy desserts out there and we are here to help!

 

1. Mini Puffed Pastry with Whipped Cream and Fruit

A little bit of puffed pastry, topped with fruit and whipped cream go a long way! It’s the main feature image of this blog and is so delicious, that you’ll never know it’s only 35 calories a piece.

 

2. Homemade Shakes

Blend together any favorite berry (or a ripe banana) with ice, yogurt, and a dab of honey.

 

3. Healthy Spiced Pears

Making fruit the center of attention in desert is a sure way to maximize its health factor. One of our favorite’s is our Spice Pear Dessert.

 

4. Fruit Salad with Walnuts and Whipped Cream

Any version of fruit mixed with walnuts and topped with whipped cream will serve your family well at dessert time!

 

5. Pudding with Fruit

Top this dessert with a little chocolate sauce for an extra boost of sweetness. Or try our Chocolate Shaved Chia Pudding recipe.

6. Dairy-free Cheesecake
