Yes, you heard right.

On one hand, it’s great that there are still plenty of opportunities for decadent treats and splurges on a plant-based diet. But on the other, it’s important to remember that it’s still possible to make less than optimal choices, and thus, still a good idea to be aware of the nutritional value of the foods you’re putting into your body.

The following recipes use healthy swaps and alternatives to make 10 of our favorite treats more nutritious. Don’t be afraid to try clever swaps like dried fruit and beans in cookies, peas in guacamole, and tofu in ice cream! These healthier versions are just as delicious as their fat- and calorie-laden counterparts.
