Dessert has become an almost irreplaceable part of Turkish cuisine. But lately, the use of refined sugars had made dessert an unnecessary—and unhealthy—splurge. Yet it doesn’t have to be that way. Digging into traditional recipes, chef Omur Akkor finds dozens of healthy dessert recipes that utilize fruits, honey, and natural sugars instead of the unhealthy refined sugars so prominently used today. This book includes healthy twists on old favorites, including rice pudding, carrot cake, and Turkey’s world-famous baklava. Instead of skipping dessert altogether, Healthy Desserts will help you to find the perfect recipe—for your taste buds and your health.
