What do you have planned for Valentine’s day? Valentine’s day during the week makes it harder to sneak out on a date night so we usually opt to go before or after. Both my husband and I, always enjoy a good dessert. However, we are watching our weight, dessert has to be accounted for and worked into our daily calorie limits. Depending on our daily calorie intake, will depend if we indulge. These healthy Valentine’s day desserts can be worked into our daily calorie limits and allow us to enjoy our dessert without the guilt.
This year, I don’t want to have to pass up eating my Valentine’s day dessert. Pinterest is my favorite go-to place to search for healthy recipes, including these healthy Valentine’s day desserts.
