While you need to make changes to your diet when trying to lose pregnancy weight, desserts can still be enjoyed when following a healthy eating plan.
Choosing to make your own, healthier versions of desserts is a good way to keep your sweet tooth satisfied while not eating too many calories.
Try replacing high-fat, high-refined sugar desserts like ice cream, cake and puddings with this healthy mousse made with the goodness of avocado and cacao.
This simple recipe is easy to make because it has only 4 ingredients!
