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?
