We know there are a lot of Maltese people out there who have made it their mission to cut out desserts for lent. We commend all of them and by no means wish to corrupt them during their 40-day challenge.
But… we also know that having a sweet-tooth is something you’re born with. So for those of you trying your best to cut out sugar from your diets this lent, have a look at these desserts. They’re naturally sweetened, so the sinning is within reason.
Dying for a chunky slice of Banoffee Pie? Who isn’t. But this easy-peasy recipe will come as close as possible to hitting the banana spot.
If you love citrusy desserts then this one is for you. Also super easy to make. #LentWinner
How awesome would this dessert look when you’re entertaining your friends? It’s sugar-free fun for everyone.
Dates are a favourite with the Maltese. If you’re a fan, then you’ll love these flavour-packed balls of goodness.
If you go for the cinnamon option instead of brown sugar in this recipe, then you’ll be walking pretty securely within your fasting boundaries.
If you’re a fan of anything that’s served in a jar and looks like a hipster’s dream – this is the dessert for you. Also a good breakfast. #MhuxXorta
It turns out that avocados can be mashed up and used instead of milk to create a mousse-like texture, but without all the fat. This recipe uses sweetener, so if you’re not up for anything artificial it’s not one for you.
