Desserts that are Basically Vegetables
Everyone always says to eat more veggies, right? Live the dream while chowing down on cookies, cakes, tarts, puddings, and ice cream minus the guilt. Because, hey you're really eating (some) vegetables!
Butternut Squash Spice Cake
Watch out, carrot cake. An intriguing mix of spices, plus coconut sugar for subtle sweetness, put this butternut squash cake over the top. (And did we mention the bourbon?) You'll need 3 round cake pans (8 in. each).
What's that old saying? A cookie a day keeps the doctor away.
Spice Cake with Caramel Icing
Parsnips make this aromatic spice cake moist and this cake makes parsnips tolerable.
Rum-Glazed Sweet Potato Cakes
A shout out to sweet potatoes for letting us pretend to eat healthy each and every holiday season.
Green Tomato and Fig Cupcakes
We know that tomatoes are technically a fruit but these cupcakes are too good to care!
New Classic Red Velvet Cake
Good thing all that cream cheese frosting is a distraction from the secret ingredient - Beets!
Butternut Squash Bread Pudding with Tres Leches Sauce
We'd eat anything covered in Tres Leches Sauce but for the record there's an entire butternut squash in this dessert.
The Ultimate Carrot Cake
THREE cups of carrots people! #Health
We can actually see the rhubarb atop this sweet tart. Cover the evidence with lots of whipped cream.
Sweet Corn Ice Cream
Veggies, protein, dairy - this is pretty much a balanced meal.
Fresh Ginger Cake with Candied Citrus Glaze
The peppery punch of fresh ginger has got us (and this cake) all glazed over.
