Three healthy sweet treat recipes to help you give up sugar

#1:Dark chocolate and almond butter date truffles
  • ¾ cup dark chocolate, melted
  • ½ cup crunchy almond butter
  • 8 dates, pitted
  1. With a small paring knife, slice one side of date, creating a slit. Open up the date and stuff with 2 teaspoons of almond butter. Then dip the date into the melted chocolate, place on top of greased waxed paper. Repeat. Eat as soon as chocolate has set, or for speedier process place truffles in the fridge.
#2: Mint, chocolate chip and banana ice cream
