Three Quick Desserts to Soothe Your Sweet Tooth

Usually desserts are not part of your daily diet, nor should they. They are supposed to be the crowning piece of a well curated feast rather than a cheap sugary thrill – at least in theory. In reality, even the most steadfast of us succumb to sugar’s siren call every now and then. This is nothing to be ashamed of. Everyone needs the occasional sugar rush to push through the remaining hours of the day, am I right?! The following desserts take only 20 minutes on average to prepare, which makes them perfect for battling a sudden drop in blood sugar. For good measure, we have thrown in some fruit as well – to soothe your sweet tooth AND your guilty conscience.
