Valentine’s Day Desserts

January went by in a blink, and now Valentine’s Day is fast approaching, bringing date nights, evenings with the ladies, and grocery store aisles bursting with flowers and chocolate.

There is very little out there as tempting as chocolate, and it’s more difficult to avoid over-indulging when it seems to be there every time you turn around. Rather than completely denying myself sweets, I like to find new, and hopefully healthier, ways to indulge my sweet tooth and enjoy foods like chocolate in moderation. 

I don’t know about you or how you plan on spending February 14th, but one of my favorite things about this holiday is that it’s a great excuse to try a new tasty dessert! Since we have a ton of sweet treats here at CleanFoodCrush, I decided to put together a list of my favorites.

Here are 15 decadent dessert ideas to enjoy this Valentine’s Day!

1. Cocoa Peanut Butter Fudge

These no-bake little tastes of heaven are perfect for a Valentine’s Day treat!

If you’re a chocolate and peanut butter fan, these are perfect for you. Feel free to make the recipe your own by swapping peanut butter with almond butter, cashew butter, or sun butter. 

2. Chocolate Chip PB Cottage Cheese Ice Cream

Here’s a creative, protein-filled dessert you’ll love.

Protein isn’t the only thing that makes this ice cream a great healthy option.

Cottage cheese is low in calories and fat, packed with calcium, and full of nutrients. It’s also a solid source of vitamin B12, selenium, riboflavin, phosphorus, and folate!

3. Raspberry Filled Chocolate Bites

These super simple 4-ingredient bites just look perfect for this holiday with their gorgeous raspberry hue.

Plus, raspberries and chocolate are a perfect combination! You will definitely be impressed by these little fruit-filled chocolate treats.

4. Easy Homemade Pumpkin Brownies

Pumpkin might scream Autumn, but these homemade brownies deserve a spot on this list!

The flavors complement each other in a surprisingly excellent way, and this dessert feels super indulgent while being packed full of nutrient-dense foods to feel good about!

5. Mini Crustless Pumpkin Pies

Here are some mini personal pumpkin pies for an intimate date night at home.

They’re incredibly delicious, silky-smooth, full of vitamins, and topped off with a dollop of whipped coconut cream you’ll love!

6. Pear Crumble

Naturally sweetened, warm, cozy, rustic, all-natural dessert you can easily make before or after your Valentine’s dinner.

It requires only a few basic ingredients and a few minutes of hands-on time.

7. Chocolate Yogurt Parfaits

Here’s another personal-size dessert for you! These darling little chocolate yogurt parfaits are perfect for a date night, but they also make a fantastic breakfast or snack idea.

8. Super Easy Pumpkin Fudge

I couldn’t resist adding one more pumpkin recipe, and what better after-dinner indulgence than some fudge?

It’s so tasty and seriously melts in your mouth, not to mention it is easy to prepare!

9. Berry Breakfast Tart

Our Berry Breakfast Tart is absolutely GORGEOUS and fresh tasting while also being reasonably easy to make, considering the beautiful final presentation you’ll create!

Everyone will love this tart, so you might want to save this recipe for future use.

10. 3-Ingredient Banana Oatmeal Cookies

It really doesn’t get more simple than 3 ingredients.

Thankfully, no taste is sacrificed in the simplicity.

Don’t miss your chance to try these cookies, whether for dessert, an after-school snack, or even a quick breakfast! 

11. Strawberry Rhubarb Crisp

Strawberries are a classic fruit for date night, whether they’re dipped in chocolate or baked into a crisp like this one!

The sweetness of ripe strawberries combined with tangy-tart rhubarb is just the perfect combo.

12. Snickers Candy Bar Banana Pops

If you like the classic Snickers candy, you will LOVE these pops.

You might want to make extra and store them in the freezer to have later this week or to give the kids as an after-school treat.

Better yet… show the kids how to make these once, and then let them make their own!

13. Homemade Butterfinger Bars

They might not taste *exactly* like the iconic Butterfinger bar – but they’re close.

These are rich and indulgent and way too good to pass up. Homemade Butterfinger Bars will satisfy a craving you might have!

14. Black Bean Brownies

Don’t let the black beans turn you away from this recipe because the brownies are just as good as any other!

This particular recipe uses cleaner ingredients, including oat flour (with steps on how to make your own) and cacao powder, which is higher in protein, fiber, magnesium, and iron than its cousin cocoa.

15. Air-Fryer Baked Apples

If the taste of these baked apples doesn’t sell you, then the fact that your house will smell amazing while they’re cooking should!

Also, apples have several health benefits, including weight management, hydration, supporting heart and brain health, lowering disease risk, and aiding digestion.

Whether you’re celebrating with a partner, hanging with friends and family, or spending the evening practicing some self care, any of these recipes could make a perfect treat for your Valentine’s Day.
