7 Easy (and Healthy) No-Bake Frozen Desserts
Sometimes you need ice cream. And sometimes you need a whole pint of it. But more often than not, you can save yourself the future stomach ache by replacing that need with something a bit more virtuous—that still tastes just as good. Here are seven ways to make frozen fruit not boring, sneak chocolate into your day and more.
? Go on a date with your freezer by way of nut butter- and chocolate-stuffed dates. To start, cut dates in half lengthwise without going all the way through the other side, like you’re butterflying shrimp. Place a spoonful of almond butter and a few chocolate chips in the middle, then fold the halves back together and place in the freezer to set.
? Maybe these aren’t the healthiest of the bunch, but they’re definitely a contender for most delicious. Two-ingredient Oreo truffles—the second player being cream cheese—are easy to make and, should you choose to smash the Oreos by hand, a good stress reliever.
