35 Scrumptious Desserts Using Vegetables.jpg

Want to add more vegetables to your diet but don’t want to give up decadent treats? Eat more vegetables for dessert! Tasty recipes, such as spinach brownies, beet and date mousse, apple and kale cake, zucchini cookies, sweet potato brownie bites, and carrot cupcakes are filled with deliciously healthy vegetables without the expense of taste. That’s right. These desserts filled with vegetables are super yummy.

The key to creating vegetable desserts is to harness the natural sweetness found in many vegetables, such as beets, carrots, and sweet potatoes (Thanks, Mother Nature!) and hopefully add less processed sugar to the recipe. Vegetable desserts are brilliant for sneaking veggies into your kiddos’ meals or adding extra healthy fiber and nutrients to your own diet. Vegetables are a wonderful source of vitamins, minerals, fiber, and antioxidants. We can all benefit from adding more veggies to our diets, so why not eat them at dessert time?

These 35 + scrumptious vegetable-filled dessert recipes are shockingly tasty and packed with delightful nutrients. We can’t get enough of sweet potato brownie bites and cookies that contain spinach. Does eating vegetables in your desserts sound weird? Try it for yourself and let us know what you think.
