New to Clean Eating?
Get started with our free mini course! The course contains sample recipes, tips and all of the practical info you need to get started.
In the past few weeks, I’ve posted several clean eating recipes and round ups to help you get started on your clean eating journey.
But you may have noticed that there was something lacking.
I can’t believe I have let it go so long without a post on my favorite part of the day!
When I first got started on clean eating, I remember getting on track with meals fairly quickly, but so many times after dinner I would find myself back in the kitchen, snacking on an unhealthy dessert minutes later.
That just won’t cut it.
And I wasn’t about to cut desserts out of my life. Instead, I decided to find ways to make clean eating, healthy and low sugar desserts.
Of course, that’s actually a lot more difficult than it sounds. Although finding healthy snacks and desserts is not too much of a challenge in and of itself, finding ones that taste good and were not overly complicated and/or time-consuming…. that’s a whole other ball game.
Over time, I was able to figure out what worked for me and what didn’t and found a whole bunch of tasty recipes. Of course, feel free to experiment and substitute to make these treats more to your liking.
If you are one of those currently struggling with clean eating dessert recipes like I once did, then this post is for you. I have rounded up a list of healthy clean eating desserts that call for little to no sugar.
Whole Wheat Strawberry Banana Protein Muffins
Recipe from ifoodreal
Aren’t you just itching to sink your teeth into this fluffy sugar-free strawberry muffin? Made with lots of real fruit (bananas! strawberries!), these muffins are good enough to have you coming back time and time again. In our house we love them as an after school snack.
Flourless Chocolate Chip Chickpea Blondies with Sea Salt
Recipe from Ambitious Kitchen
Vegan, gluten free, dense and absolute blondie perfection. You’d never guess that these babies are both low in sugar and actually good for you (thanks to their protein and fiber rich ingredients like peanut butter and chickpeas). Next on my list- switch it up from maple syrup to honey and see how they are then; can’t wait to share the results with you.
Superfood Banana Pops
Recipe from Skinnyms
How do you take a banana from ordinary to amazing? Stick it in the freezer. A frozen banana is absolute magic. And then you dip it in chocolate and cover it with super healthy super foods like cacoa nibs and goji berries and these everyday fruits are magically gourmet treats. Next time you or the kids are craving some ice cream, remember this guilt-free frozen banana dessert.
Double Chocolate Mint Smoothie
Recipe from Clean Eating Mag
This one tastes like a dessert but has protein like a boss. How about a flavourful, clean eating 5- minute minty shake with a protein content of 30g, a fat content of 3.5g and a fiber content of 6g per serving? Genius right? I thought so too.
Sugar-Free Lemon Pie

And your life will never be the same. They were a delight to make and the recipe is so healthy and versatile (there are plenty of other versions- including a nut-free version if you like).

This recipe had me at dark chocolate so the fact that it takes less than 5 minutes to make this single serve, paleo friendly and secretly nutritious mug cake is just icing on the cake (or, dark chocolate on the cake, if you will. I know I certainly will).
