15 Healthy Desserts for Valentine's Day
Sure, Valentine’s Day is all about the splurging, especially when it comes to dessert. But if you don’t have to load up on saturated fat and empty calories, why do it?

Think sultry dark chocolate, sparkling jeweled fruits, and luscious–but lighter–versions of classic favorites like chocolate cake and cheesecake.

We’re smitten with these decadent healthy dessert recipes.

Pomegranate Cranberry Hearts

No-bake and no-guilt. Cranberries and pomegranates lend a gorgeous natural scarlet hue to these heart-shaped treats from Spabettie--but the real clincher is that sesame cashew crust.

It’s a Pomegranate Cranberry Heart kind of day! I am so in love with those – especially the heart shape, of course. 🙂

Of course! It’s the most beautiful (and creative) banana ice cream I’ve seen! I was shocked when I saw it was banana based. Looks just like the real thing. 🙂

I love this roundup! Nothing like delicious treats for VDay that are on the healthier end of the spectrum! I’m thinking I need to fashion up a few of these recipes and give them to my friends for VDay. Thanks so much for including my peanut butter brownie bites! They’re certainly delicious!

There are just so many incredible, creative recipes out there in the blogosphere – such an insanely talented pool of people out there. You included! 🙂 LOVE the looks of those things. My guy – total PB & chocolate fiend – would be all over them.

I LOVE recipe round-ups and as a veggie with a SERIOUS sweet tooth, this guilt-free recipe round-up is WONDERFUL!

I definitely will be making the Cherry Vanilla Ice Cream & the Pomegranate Cranberry Hearts.

Thanks for this!

Oh, yay! A dessert post. Thank you! 😀

And this is a great roundup. I spent hours this morning looking for something healthier to make for Valentine’s Day and everything was all red, sprinkly, and full of waaay too much sugar. Off to check these out! 🙂

Yes! As I’ve cut way down on artificial food dyes over the past couple of years, I find that they’re EVE-RY-WHERE. Especially when it comes to V-Day desserts. It’s fun to find more natural ways to incorporate the hue (and when you can cut the sugar, too, all the better!)
