6 Healthy-ish Desserts Available for Delivery

Want the sweet stuff, minus the mad sugar rush? You’re in luck, cause we’ve rounded up 6 of our fave dessert options that come with minimal calorie guilt.

Raspberry Sorbet

Tiramisu and gelato may be your go-to dessert options, but you’ll thank us for trading those sugary delights for the refreshing and healthier raspberry sorbet. It’ll taste even better than the flavoured ice blocks you grew up with, loaded with real raspberry and without too much of the bad stuff.

Order raspberry sorbet from The Scoop Artisan Gelato, Campbelltown, NSW

Lemon Polenta Cake

Does your inner child come out whenever chocolate cake or cupcakes enter your peripheral vision? Bad habits are hard to break, particularly ones that involve bakery goodies. It’ll take a measure of self-restraint, but a lemon polenta cake is a swap you should get behind when cravings hit. Drizzled with lemon and soaked until it’s rich and moist, it’s the perfect little slice to have with your daily cuppa.

Banana Split

Crazy for dessert but trying to incorporate more fruit into your diet? You could go for a slice of banana bread, but sadly heavy on the sugar and light on the banana. And while the banana split is topped with a lil whipped cream, sprinkles and chocolate sauce, it is fruit at its core, and that’s gotta count for something.

Fruit Fondue

Seeing a trend here with these fruity dessert options? Fruit on skewers dipped in glorious chocolate fondue and fudge is another tasty choice. Food on skewers is essentially stacked food, which means double the amount of food can be held at once!

Mango Sticky Rice

Love Thai food but never ventured beyond the mains section of a Thai menu? Mango sticky rice is a traditional dessert featuring coconut rice and fresh mango — creamy and sweet, there’s nothing not to love. Did we mention it’s also a top gluten-free choice?

Fruit Crumble

Everyone loves a classic, crunchy, golden crumble topping atop softly poached fruits. Apple crumble and rhubarb crumble are our top picks, and they’re even more perfect when topped with a modest scoop of vanilla ice cream. Sometimes when we eat it, angels sing.
