So when push comes to shove, the best way to incorporate dessert is to make it as guilt-free as possible. Make it from scratch, with love, with only the best ingredients and you may find yourself consuming only what you told yourself to savour for the rest of the week. And remember, it doesn't have to be complicated to be good, or healthy! Try this incredibly delicious recipe out from Jessica Schlangen of the blog, Gluten Free jess.
