17 Sweet Ways to Incorporate Veggies into Your Holiday Desserts
Your parents always told you to eat your greens — they just didn’t say how. Now that we’re all adults, we know the secret to getting your daily dose is in veggie-packed dessert recipe form. This holiday season, we certainly won’t be skimping on kale, cauliflower or squash. Here are 17 of the sweetest ways to make sure you’re eating lots of one of the most important food groups. And, yes, we do take our medicine wrapped in a cheese ball.
3. Kale, Mint and Dark Chocolate Chunk Frozen Yogurt: This recipe skips the food dye that normally makes mint ice cream green by swapping in a kale substitute, so you can feel really good (and clever) while you eat ice cream. (via Veggie Desserts)
10. Butternut Squash Pudding: Tell your guests about the inspo for this pudding before you tell them about the veggies: Martha Stewart shared the recipe via Ron Suhanosky, of the popular Italian restaurant Sfoglia in New York City. (via Martha Stewart)
14. Three Layer Parsnip Cake With Cream Cheese Frosting: Here’s a recipe that’s similar to carrot cake — yet with more of a nutty, sweet flavor — for a unique alternative. (via The Hungry Hounds)
