15 Waist-Friendly Sugar Free Desserts


I know technically desserts are supposed to be treats and not exactly diet-friendly but it seems sugar is in everything these days and we could really use a break. I’m talking about the white refined stuff, or even the brown non-refined sugar (which has about the same calories) that’s so hard to avoid lately. The best way to avoid it is to make your own sugar free desserts.

But how can a sweet treat remain sweet without sugar? The natural sweetness of fruit, honey, dates, stevia and other healthy sweeteners work just as well, especially when you use them with common sense. Here are some of the best sugar-free desserts that taste amazing and are friendlier to your waist.
