Healthy Desserts that Hit All the Right Protein Notes

Owning a sweet tooth while trying to live and eat healthier is a pain in the butt! After all, healthy eating and dessert are hardly ever mentioned in the same sentence.

Well, I’ve put it upon myself to change all that!

Not only are the desserts in this list healthy enough to fit into your healthy lifestyle, but they are also high in protein!

“Why protein?” you ask.
Because protein has been known to assist in natural and healthy weightloss. And the opportunity to have your cake, eat it and still lose weight??

How can you possibly say no to that?
