When it comes to skin care, we’re always searching for the healthiest ingredients. But shouldn’t you have the same philosophy with your diet too? Everyone needs to satisfy their sweet tooth every once in awhile, and believe it or not, there are desserts that are good for your skin! So, we compiled a list of recipes for desserts that you’d never know are healthy. PS - make sure to share these with your clients!
Chocolate Ice Cream SandwichesChocolate Ice Cream Sandwiches may not be on your list of desserts that are good for your skin, but surprise! This recipe includes bananas and avocados for the sandwich filling, which are loaded in potassium and healthy fats…and you know our love for avocado!
Black Bean BrowniesVegan and gluten-free, these Black Bean Brownies are loaded with fiber and protein thanks to those black beans! This recipe also calls for cocoa powder, which has antioxidants that our skin needs to fight those nasty free radicals. Combined with antioxidant-heavy products like C Power, free radicals won’t stand a chance.
Chickpea Chocolate Chip CookiesIf you’ve never thought of adding beans to your cookie dough recipe, you’re not alone. However, that’s the theme here! These Chickpea Chocolate Chip Cookies have loads of protein and fiber too, but we suggest adding in a couple tablespoons of peanut butter for taste and a dose of healthy fats.
Pumpkin Spice Oatmeal CookiesWith these Pumpkin Spice Oatmeal Cookies you’ll never have to wait for Thanksgiving pumpkin pie again. Pumpkin is swimming with Vitamin A, which plays a role in maintaining your vision and neurological function, and slows the breakdown of collagen in the skin… vitamin A is a common ingredient in mature skin care for that reason!
Mango Green Tea PopsiclesOn this list of healthy recipes for desserts, Mango Green Tea Popsicles are our favorite! Perfect for the warmer weather, these popsicles have two layers: one of matcha green and one of mango. Green tea is antioxidant-packed, and mango is made of fats that keep the heart healthy. Seems like the perfect combination to us!
