We are huge advocates of the fact that eating a Healthy/Real food/Paleo/whatever you want to call it lifestyle does not mean you have to give up your favourite foods, and it certainly does not mean you have to eat ‘boring’ or ‘bland’ food! Oh no, quite the contrary! We are on a mission to show you that you can enjoy a healthier version of whatever your heart desires, even at Easter time – the most sugar filled holiday of them all!
From raw chocolate to healthy cakes, there is something for everyone to enjoy! All of these recipes are refined sugar free, dairy free, gluten free and grain free. Once you have been introduced to the wonderful world of healthy treats, you’ll see what we mean about real food not being boring!
This Easter, we believe you won’t be missing out on anything at all if you go for healthy desserts (except maybe a sugar coma/upset tummy!). That’s why we have compiled a list of the 16 best Healthy Easter dessert recipes! Enjoy what we reckon is the best of the best for all of the Healthy Easter desserts from all over the net!
