Maintaining a healthy diet often means cutting out some of the foods we love the most. Desserts in particular are often first to go when we eat clean, and desserts are often what we crave the most between meals of boneless skinless chicken breast and leafy greens. But we don't have to avoid dessert completely! In fact, there are plenty of recipes that are actually good for us!
