Roundup: Healthy Spring Desserts

The weather is warming, and everyone’s starting to feel more lighthearted overall. (That increase in Vitamin D has to be playing a role. Hooray for longer days!) As with any change in season, the foods we start eating and craving often change, too. One thing that stays consistent – at least for me – is a love of sweet things. As my grandfather used to say, “I just like a little something sweet after supper.”

Luckily, you can have something sweet AND keep it (relatively) healthy at the same time with recipes like the six we’ve rounded up here:
