The health and fitness industry is growing at an incredible pace, and with that, restaurants, patisseries and bakeries are having to up their game to stay in business. This means, modifying their recipes to suit the demands of millennials like ourselves, who care for fitness but also love desserts!
And when it comes to dessert, we can all agree that sugar — especially refined sugar — is the worst enemy. So we’ve rounded up some delicious sugar-free treats for you to indulge in without guilt:
1. Raw Vegan Strawberry Parfait by The Green Stove
The Green Stove’s vegan menu is designed for the healthy soul.
We’re excited about their newest addition to the list of guilt-free desserts. The Raw Vegan Strawberry Parfait is packed with nuts and seeds, and fruit, minus the refined sugar, flour and oil. And it’s served up in a jar! You can pick up your order, or have it delivered for a small additional fee.
2. Keto Desserts by Bombay Bizarre Baker
Tara Kapur is a home baker in Bandra who has tailored a special keto-friendly (high fat, low carb) dessert menu for her health crazed customers.
