Do you still need to eat something sweet without feeling guilty? No problem! Here we have seven low-calorie delicious recipes for desserts without sugar. Instead, they contain natural ingredients like nectarines, milk, honey, cocoa powder, lemon and even matcha tea!
Nectarines, on the one hand, are an excellent source of fibre, vitamins and minerals. They contain beta-carotene, which is an antioxidant that protects the organism. Our body converts the beta-carotene in Vitamin A, which is beneficial for the bones, teeth, skin, and mucous membranes.
Vitamin C (also present in nectarines), is part of a protein which produces skin, scar tissue, tendons and ligaments, while repairing bones, cartilage and helps to heal wounds. Vitamin C is an antioxidant that helps to prevent cancer, heart disease and arthritis.
Nectarines contain fibre as grains, legumes and nuts. Dietary fibre produces satiety and thus reducing calories per intake. It is excellent for digestion while preventing constipation. Potassium is present here, too, and it is vital for the correct cellular function. It regulates pH balance, plays a role in protein synthesis and metabolism of carbohydrates.
