Check out This Mama Cooks! Health Ups Some Classic Desserts

by Anne-Marie Barnett Nichols at

I don’t know about you, but I always have to end a meal with something sweet. I try to keep it healthy, like enjoying a piece of fruit. But there are times I must have dessert! The challenge is making desserts that are not only healthy, but are gluten free, dairy free and something my whole family would enjoy.

I’ve created a roundup of some of my favorite classic desserts at that are healthy and/or meet a special dietary need. You can view the Healthing Up Some Classic Desserts recipe collection along with all my other recipe roundups.

And you can find more of my healthy dessert recipes here.

What’s your favorite healthy dessert?

    I love a healthy dessert, though we save real dessert for the weekend. I grew up with a fresh piece of fruit as my daily dessert and have raised my girls the same way but on weekends we like to splurge a little :-)

    I’m thinking a low-fat ice cream scoop is about as healthy as I get with dessert. Not that I wouldn’t eat healthy desserts. I just haven’t really made them. 😉

    That Summer Berry Pudding Trifle looks delicious. I need some healthy recipes. My husband walked in with Twinkies today. Not the best option.

    I love that healthy and dessert aren’t contradictions here! I love dessert…like looooove dessert. It’s nice to know I don’t have to fill guilty about having it. The Strawberry Cheesecake Parfaits would probably be the first on my list since we can still get some amazing fresh strawberries.
