Easter Treats That Won’t Compromise Your Health

Easter is one of the most popular holidays in the U.S. and is well known for chocolate eggs, Peeps (marshmallow bunnies), and jellybeans. All are tasty but none of them can really be labeled as healthy.

Luckily, there are tons of alternatives to the traditional Easter sweets that are just as delicious but won’t compromise your healthy lifestyle! Here are a few healthy Easter treat ideas:

Strawberry Carrots

These delicious treats are a healthier alternative to chocolate covered strawberries. Instead of dipping strawberries in chocolate, these sweet fruits are dipped in yogurt! They are deliciously made with fresh strawberries and vanilla yogurt (mixed with orange food coloring) and that is it!

Strawberries are a powerful, healthy fruit that improves immune function, lowers blood pressure, and regulates blood sugar. There is no other unnecessary added sugar. It is a refreshing treat the whole family can enjoy!

Breakfast Pizza

These are great for Easter but can be enjoyed all year round! They are a great alternative to s’mores. Instead of chocolate and marshmallows on graham crackers, it is made of up a delicious blueberry tart crust topped with a healthy cream cheese frosting and the fruits of your choice! It is extremely easy to make and even better to enjoy.

Chocolate Peanut Butter Easter Candy

Eating healthy doesn’t mean you have to completely ditch the chocolate peanut butter eggs that you love this Easter! This recipe tastes just as good as any store-bought peanut butter chocolates (or maybe even better). It includes natural peanut butter and dark chocolate which are both good for your health.

Studies have shown that dark chocolate can lower blood pressure, reduce the risk of heart disease, and is filled with antioxidants and peanut butter is high in good fats, fiber, protein, and a number of vitamins and nutrients.

Gluten Free Black Forest Trifle

If you want to enjoy a decadent dessert on Easter Sunday (without a ton of added sugar) then this Black Forest Trifle recipe is the perfect choice. It is 100% plant-based and is deliciously rich and decadent that you may not be able to stop at just one serving! It is a chocolate mousse dessert that you will not forget (and not feel guilty about enjoying)!

It includes avocados and bananas which are both super foods that provide great health benefits. Bananas are the perfect source for potassium, fiber, manganese, and vitamin B6 and are absolutely delicious to eat! And avocados are a super-food that has anti-inflammatory properties, provides you with nearly 20 essential vitamins and nutrients, is packed with a powerful antioxidant called Glutathione, and is high in healthy fats!

Enjoying a tasty Easter treat doesn’t have to come with a load of sugar, saturated fats, and empty calories. Too much sugar can be dangerous to your health, can increase your risk of chronic diseases, and be harmful to your liver, kidneys, heart, skin, and joints. There are many ways to enjoy sweets without compromising your health!
