Healthy living has become an important topic in recent years, with more and more studies showing the numerous benefits a clean diet can provide. Although it’s good to give our bodies a chance to take in all the nutrients it needs, healthy recipes simply aren’t the tastiest out there.
However, that doesn’t have to be the case anymore. With all the fruit, spices, and protein supplements available at the local supermarket and online, you can easily find healthy ways to reward yourself and not feel guilty about it later.
After trying out these three recipes, you’ll throw out all your unhealthy snacks as you’ll never want to eat anything else.
1. Healthy brownie bites
Brownies are the ultimate pick when it comes to sweet snacks and desserts. However, they’re not the most diet-friendly option. That’s why we’ve turned the recipe around and created healthy brownie bites.
Healthy brownie bites are so rich in flavor and texture that you’ll never guess they’re a healthier
alternative to traditional brownies. To make them, you’ll need:
● 1 ¼ cups dates
● ½ cup walnut halves
● ¼ cup chocolate chips
● 2 tsp vanilla extract
The preparation of these brownie bites takes less than 5 minutes. Simply put all the ingredients in a food processor and blend them. After all the ingredients merge, you can start rolling the mixture into balls. You’ll end up with about 12 brownie bites. If you like, you can roll the balls into more protein powder so that they’re not sticky. Refrigerate the brownie bites and enjoy!
2. Chocolate chia pudding
Pudding is a great way to start your day. Quick and easy to make, chocolate chia pudding is healthy and rich in omega-3 fatty acids while remaining low-calorie. To make chocolate chia pudding, you’ll need:
● 60g chia seeds
● 400ml hazelnut or almond milk
● 3 tbsp protein powder
● 2 tbsp maple syrup
● ½ tsp vanilla extract
● a handful of frozen berries
Combine all of the ingredients besides berries in a large bowl and whisk them together until they blend seamlessly. Store the mixture in a fridge for several hours or overnight. In the morning, you’ll have a thick and healthy pudding with rich flavor. Top the pudding with frozen berries for a finishing touch and enjoy your new favorite meal.
3. Chocolate milkshake
A milkshake is a perfect example of a simple, quick, and healthy breakfast. The best thing about milkshakes is that you don’t need any particular ingredients, as you can put just about anything you have in the fridge. Here’s our example of a healthy milkshake:
● ¾ cup coconut, almond, or hazelnut milk
● ¼ cup peanut butter
● 1 banana
● ¼ cup maple syrup
Blend all the ingredients until you get a smooth texture. Add some ice cubes for an extra-refreshing touch and enjoy your tasty but guilt-free chocolate milkshake.
