Craving those sweet treats even though you're watching your waistline? You're in for a real good one because here are the top 5 weight-loss-friendly desserts that can satisfy any sweet tooth!
1. Sweet Citrus Ice Lolly
No summer is complete without at least one citrus lolly! We like ours with a little kick, in the form of cayenne pepper... you're going to have to trust us on this one. The pop is super rich in Vitamin C and is refreshing, sweet and tangy.
For ingredients, our refreshing Sweet Citrus (Orange, Lemon, Tangerine, Grapefruit, Turmeric, Cayenne, and Black Pepper) is all you need!
Pour Sweet Citrus into your popsicle mould. It's best to add in the stick when it's partly frozen so around 15 minutes.
Freeze for a further 15 minutes and there you go. Easy peasy citrus squeezy!
2. Chia Pudding
Soak 4 tsp chia seeds in 250ml almond, coconut or regular milk overnight, with a small drizzle of honey and a pinch of cinnamon.
These little super seeds so are much more than just another craze. They are what gives this dessert its 6g fibre and 4g protein per serving! Fibre can increase the feeling of fullness which is exactly what you need for weight loss.
3. PRESS Cacao and Matcha Bar
While many health bars are padded with sugar and cheap nutritionally void ingredients, our Cacao and Matcha Bar is different! This chocolatey indulgence uses the best of the best when it comes to ingredients, made with 100% raw cacao and high-grade matcha green tea.
Without sacrificing on flavour, this is a low sugar chocolate treat that comes with just 9g of sugar per 48g bar! And for just 163 calories you also receive an additional 5g of protein and 2g of fibre. This is the perfect combo for keeping blood sugar stable and hunger at bay.
4. Creamy Lemon Bars
These creamy lemon bars are creamy, rich and not too sweet! Naturally sweetened, these have an almond-oat crust with a filling that is comprised of soaked cashews, coconut cream, lemon juice, maple syrup and a pinch of sea salt!

5. White and Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookie Dough Bonbons
This recipe is an easy, no-bake good smothered in homemade raw chocolate. It's not only decadent making it perfect for a dinner party, but it also tastes as indulgent as it looks! Using oat or raw buckwheat flour instead of wheat, this is great for those who are intolerant. Not a fan of peanut butter? Swap this out for alternatives like almond or cashew, and you're in for a treat like no other!
