“Paleo Desserts”

I know I have shared my thoughts on paleo desserts before, but since I actually took the time to make 3 different ones last weekend, I figured I should dedicate a whole post to them.

I’m not going to lie to you: I am not a fan of “paleo desserts.” Mainly because I find that phrase to be an oxymoron. I think that using something like coconut sugar or coconut milk rather than table sugar or regular milk in order to call something paleo is kind of a cop out. At the end of the day, sugar is sugar.

Both Juli Baur (paleomg) and Alanna (planksloveandguacamole) – where I got my dessert recipes from- have made that point though. “Paleo desserts” are still desserts and therefore should be eaten in moderation. Just because they are “paleo,” that doesn’t mean that you can (or should) consume an entire plate of them. Continue reading
