Okay. So Valentine's Day is on Saturday. I know. Don't freak out. CALM DOWN, FOR THE LOVE OF ALL THAT IS SPARKLY AND COVERED IN EDIBLE GLITTER!
Edible glitter isn't edible. For real. Who looks at a cupcake covered and glitter and thinks to themselves...yeah...that's gonna go down reeeeallll nice. ANYWAYS.
I thought I would post all my healthy Valentine's Day dessert recipes from this month in one place. You can, of course, make any recipe 'Valentine's Day-ish' by some simple tweaks -- so by all means -- do you, boo boo. Do. You.
I think dessert is important all year round. I think that's a moot point by now. BUT. Valentine's Day especially! And I happen to be a HUGE fan of the tradition of chocolate.
And like I have said before -- It by NO means has to make you feel bad or mopey. I have always celebrated by buying my mom small presents or home made things and creating little gift boxes for family. You can have holiday spirit without buying into the romantic hocus pocus mumbo-jumbo bologna.
If I had to pick an ABSOLUTE FAVOURITE....Well...I wouldn't. Because I love them all. But those Raspberry Cheesecakes were bomb. Make those. No wait ...make them all.. NO WAIT....Let's go through them all and you make your own choices because you are a consenting adult.
There you go! There's something in there for everyone. The fat-free friend. The vanilla bean lover. The chocolate fanatic (x2 of course). The gym rat. FOR ALL BAE'S.
Hope you enjoy your Valentine's Day. If you're going to stay in and binge eat on desserts and wine -- making sure they're a bit better for you will make YOU feel a bit better ;) Until the next morning. Only aspirin can help you then, boo boo.
I personally am going to share some treats with the fam jam. Because they have put up with me for so long and all my tears and complaining -- they deserve some love!
Happy Valentines Day,
