Sugar-Free Desserts: 5 Surprises

Banana Cream

"Are you sure this is bananas?" is the most popular response to this dish. A hand blender makes a smoother dessert, while a stand blender cuts calories by 35.

Chocolate-Fudged Seasonal Fruit Skewers

Use the dip to garnish cupcakes, put over fruit tarts, swirl into banana cream, freeze for a chocolate popsicle, or eat alone as a delicious pudding.

Cinnamon-Apple Crispy Quinoa Crepes

Quinoa flour may replace all-purpose flour without gluten. Protein-rich and nutty, it pairs well with sweets. Caramelizing the apples' inherent sugars eliminates the need for sugar.

Mango-Chili-Lime Pops

South American mango popsicles are bright and tasty. Chill down with roughly 45% of your daily vitamin C and no artificial colors or thickeners like bottled pops.

Almond Joys

Candy bars can inspire these truffles. Almond Joys were my childhood favorite, and this grown-up version has all the tastes without corn syrup, oils, or preservatives.

The Pelvic Tilt

Knees bowed, feet flat, lie on a yoga mat. Relax your low back (which means you should feel a slight curve in your low back if you place the top of your hand under your back). Engage your core and gradually tilt your pelvis forward to flatten your low back on the floor.

Supine Figure 4 Stretch

Lie on your back on a yoga mat with knees bent and feet on the floor. Lift your right leg, flex your foot, and cross your right ankle over your left thigh. If this is enough, stay or draw your left knee in and hold behind your left thigh to intensify.

Reclining Hand-to-Big Toe Stretch 

Hands behind thigh or calf, depending on hamstrings. Keep your opposite leg and hip. Be steady. 10. Drop your right leg right while retaining your opposite hip. Drop the right leg sideways without raising the opposite hip.
