Sometimes Valentines Day can be a nightmare. Piles of chocolate everywhere you go, cheesecakes, cookies, smart little artistic candies packed full of goodness knows how much sugar – you can’t say no to everything. So here is a round-up of some of my favourite guilt-free recipes from around the web. I’ve tried them all (of course!) and let me assure you – they taste as good as they look. – You’re Welcome!
Cherry Chocolate Greek Yogurt Cookies from Yankee Kitchen Ninja
Chocolate cookies that you don’t have to feel bad about eating? You can use any combination of fruit and yoghurt for these cookies if you’re not a fan of cherry. Shh..I won’t tell if you have them for breakfast.
Valentine Heart Yogurt Melts from Crazy About My BayBah
These are so simple you’ll be kicking yourself for not thinking of it sooner! The original idea was to help a teething baby but pop stick into the moulds partway through freezing, and you’ve got a great snack for kids of any age. Chances are they’ll never even know what they’re eating is good for them!
Valentine’s Day Fruit Lovebugs from Farmers Wife Rambles
How cute would these be perched on top of some pancakes or waffles on Valentine’s Day morning or covering a platter for a school party? They’re not trying to make and are a good project to get kids involved with as well.
Lighter Strawberry Cheesecake for Two from The Frugal Foodie Mama
If indulging in a cake is a must for your celebrations, this is a delicious recipe to lighten things up. Yes, even decadent cheesecake can be made with less fat and fewer calories. Feel free to top with loads of fresh berries when serving.
Raspberry Shooters from Cooking on the Front Burner
These are so light and airy you might forget you’re even eating dessert. If you have dinner guests coming or just planning a dessert get together, you can whip this dessert up in just a few minutes. Swap the raspberries for strawberries, blueberries, or any other fruit that you enjoy – or make a variety!
