Now that summer is in full swing; people often want to indulge in something light and sweet. A few treats every once in a while to satisfy your sweet tooth is fine, but over time, too many desserts can have undesirable effects. Saturated fat, sugar, and other additives found in many desserts can take a toll on your health. It doesn't have to be that way, though. With these healthy dishes, you can enjoy delicious dessert without going overboard on all the sugar.


1. Chocolate-Mint Bars

For those who adore the traditional chocolate and mint combo, this recipe will surely satisfy even the most demanding sweet tooths. Dark chocolate - deep, creamy, and scrumptious - mixed with refreshing mint, makes for an unbeatable dessert. If you're not a fan of dark chocolate, you can substitute it for low-fat milk chocolate. This dessert is best served in the afternoon on a hot summer day; that's why after making the bars, it's a good idea to refrigerate them. Serve cold and with a glass of milk. You can even get creative and coat the bars with nuts.
