The holidays, Thanksgiving, Chanukah, Christmas, and New Year, are often a time of remarkable excessive eating and drinking. But the holidays don’t have to regress your healthy habits. You can eat your favorite holiday cakes, cookies, cakes, and fabulous desserts without gaining weight – indulge sensibly. So, I found a few healthy desserts that taste like a splurge but are healthy.
Tangy Lemon Cheesecake Bars
Classic lemon squares can contain up to 36 grams of sugar per piece. By putting a tangy cheesecake spin on ours, we’ve cut the sugar down to only 6 grams per pop. Your sweet tooth will agree that these bars are good enough to enjoy year-round.

MarshmallowPopcorn Treats with Dark Chocolate Drizzle
Reminiscent of classic popcorn balls, these salty-sweet treats make for awesome low-fat snacking. Make a batch to enjoy throughout the week.
Almond Butter and Yogurt-Dipped Fruit
Almond butter and Greek yogurt create one protein-packed combination when it comes to sweet treats. Dip your fresh fruit of choice into the yogurt mixture and eat right away or freeze the fruit to create a shell similar todark chocolate covered strawberries.
