Healthy Holiday Desserts Your Family Will Love

So much of our holiday celebrations revolve around some festive fare. Between the red velvet cupcakes at the local bakery, Grandma’s famous pecan pie, and some piping hot peppermint mochas, there are lots of opportunities to indulge. Treats are a part of what makes the holiday season so special. 

While it’s certainly enjoyable to sample your way through the season, the fun and games can come to a screeching halt when it’s time to put on some jeans. Luckily, you don’t have to choose. Healthy and delicious can (and do!) coexist. Accommodate any guest’s diet or stay on track with our favorite healthy Christmas desserts.
