14 Skinny Dessert Recipes for the Holidays
We’re all about lightening up the holidays around here where we can, and these 14 desserts are sure to do just that. Well, they’ll at least provide some balance for that deep fried turkey on your table, but whatevs. Just know each of these swoon-worthy creations promises to be a totally decadent way to finish up a feast, despite their “skinny” status.
1. No-Bake Vegan Peanut Butter Banoffi Pie (Vegan): Bananas and peanut butter are a natural pairing in this amazing no-bake pie. Made without gluten, dairy or refined sugar, it’s a great alternative to the traditional butter- and sugar-laden confection. (via The Clean Dish)
5. Hazelnut Chia Pudding With Persimmon Compote: The bright orange layer may fool folks into thinking these personal-sized puddings involve pumpkin. The flavor of sweet persimmon is sure be a welcome surprise. (via Sweet Kabocha)
6. Skinny Eggnog Pie With Gingersnap Crust: Homemade white chocolate pumpkin nog is the key for making this skinny pie, but it may prove too tempting to sip every last drop beforehand. (via Kitchen Meets Girl)
12. Skinny Pumpkin-Nog Shake: Sometimes it’s fun to mix things up with a sip-able dessert. With only 120 calories per serving (unheard of for ‘nog), you don’t need to feel guilty about going back for seconds … or adding a little splash of something extra. (via I Heart Naptime)
