Fancy dessert but don’t want to undo all of your hard work after signing up to the 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge? The good news is, you can have your cake and eat it!

We all know that too much sugar is bad for you. But cutting out sugar doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice your desserts!

Healthy dessert recipes

By cooking with fruit, you can add in extra nutrients that you wouldn’t get with regular sugar but the fructose means you can still get that sweet flavour. You can also use rice malt syrup, honey, coconut syrup as well as other sugar alternatives. But with everything, moderation is key.

Here are 15 healthy dessert recipes from our 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge recipe hub for you to try to get your sweet fix….
