I'm trying to cut back on, not eliminate, sweets. I am wondering what healthy-ish sweets you all eat!<br><br>
So far I have on my list--<br><br><ol class="decimal"><li>frozen banana dipped in chocolate</li>
<li>.5 milk chocolate bar</li>
<li>Italian ice</li>
<li>Fig Newtons</li>
<li>fruit garnished with strained ricotta, lightly sweetened with sugar and vanilla</li>
<li>fruit with whipped cream</li>
<li>a small amount of Nutella on whole grain toast (which is impossible to do w/o the compulsory follow up of eating dollops straight out of the jar)</li>
<li>egg-free tiramisu made with stevia (not a big fan of stevia but in this dish i like it ok)</li>
</ol>
I have healthy frozen smoothies every day for bfast so I generally don't want one for dessert at night. I'm also trying to limit dairy.<br><br>
So what do you do to satisfy your sweet tooth?<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/chef.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":chef:">

I love the <a href="http://www.lapuremama.com/2011/01/vegan-black-bean-brownies.html" target="_blank">black bean brownie recipe</a> from La Pure Mama. I make a batch, cut them up, and freeze them. Then I can take out just one or two at a time.

I dont often get a sweet tooth but when I do its RAGING! I make the brownies from "vegan with a vengeance". I stay away from processed stuff 99% of the time (sometimes I just give in though lol). I like cinnamon almonds too. Or an apple with cinnamon and PB.<br>
For example tonight I would kill someone for banana cream pie BUT my hubby is working and I will make it for the weekend. I will use an oatmeal crust and my own vegan vanilla pudding and bananas so its not HORRIBLE. I think I make one banana cream pie a year so for me its all about moderation. For me all pie crusts are whole wheat or oatmeal and they are usually fruit. Mike loves blueberry.

Chocolate strawberries <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/drool.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":drool:"><br>
I rarely ever have them, but they are so good.

Especially fresh pineapple. It's like candy.

I make popsicles out of pureed mangos. No need to add sugar, and nowhere near as messy as popsicles made with fruit juice.<br><br>
You can make truffles out of dried dates and nuts, and coat them in cocoa powder, coconut, chopped nuts, graham cracker meal. This is a photo of a recipe from the book Vegan Planet that I made for my blog:<br><img alt="" src="http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-9sDnb2KNY2Y/Th_YVFSwBmI/AAAAAAAAAIM/Hw1KvK_CzD0/s640/Date-and-Cashew-Nut-Truffle.jpg" style="border:0px solid;">

Oh my, these look awesome...they can't be healthy. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/no.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":no:"> Or maybe I am confusing healthy with fattening, lol.
