I’ve written about this before but just want to repeat again – quitting refined sugar is one of the best decisions you can make to improve your health and reverse PCOS symptoms. This is also a great way to lose weight and to clear up your skin if you have such problems. That’s why I’ve prepared
This is very hard to admit but sugar doesn’t benefit us at all. You can get energy from natural sweeteners like fruits and nuts, but as for the other kinds of sugar out there – they have zero value.
I know that the thought about eliminating sweets may sound terrifying to you. Many people have really strong sweet tooth and just get used to consume sugary foods every day. I totally get it! I’ve been there too. My addiction to pancakes (with lots of syrup, butter and all this jazz) and milk chocolate was insane.
But I will tell you this…
As soon as you learn how to balance your blood sugar levels and start eating a

And especially focus on avoiding sweet breakfast at morning. Having high-fat protein meal in the morning help balance your insulin so in a few weeks you will notice that your sugar addiction becomes way less prominent. You should also check my blog post “How to stop sugar cravings” with useful tips & tricks to crave less sweets and other nasty things.
Besides that, going sugar-free doesn’t mean you have to forget about sweets at all. It’s not the case! The thing is to have right kind of sweets. I’ve created this collection of delicious PCOS-friendly desserts to show you what you can eat for dessert.
Basically, ideal PCOS dessert should consist of healthy fats (coconut, avocado, seeds), protein (nuts, protein powder, seeds) and natural sweeteners (like fruits, berries, stevia leaf, monk fruit). Make sure you always avoid refined sugar and white flour in your desserts. They raise your blood sugar levels to the roof!
You can find more information on how to eat with hormonal imbalance and insulin resistance in my big post “PCOS diet meal plan”.
And now let’s start with the PCOS dessert recipes!
Chocolate avocado mousse
This amazing recipe is very quick and simple. But at the same time, it is healthy, rich and beneficial for your hormones. Adding avocado to desserts is one of the best ideas ever! You won’t taste it but it will give your dessert a gorgeous silky texture and, of course, all the healthy fats. Frankly speaking, lately, I make this recipe very often – it is awesome on its own but also works great as a filling for pies or a topping for crepes.
Red velvet fudge
This healthy fatty fudge is a great option for your dessert. It is sweet and tender, it’s high in healthy fats due to cashews and cacao butter. You will also like the bright vivid color of these yummy bars! It calls for roasted beets, but I used frozen raspberries and it turned out perfect too!
Creamy chocolate fudge
Another variation of fatty fudges. I really love all these fat bombs and bars because they are so simple yet satisfying. In this recipe, all you need is sugar-free (or stevia-sweetened) chocolate, nut butter
Strawberry peach cake
This cake looks so beautiful! It is light and healthy, full of fruits, and healthy fats from coconut cream and nuts. You can make it for any occasion or just prepare I advance and eat as a snack during the week. Agar-based desserts are my favorite and I hope you will love this recipe as well!
Ice-cream is something we all love and crave especially during the summer time. But almost always it is packed with so much sugar and artificial ingredients that it makes it impossible to enjoy this treat when you have PCOS. But! You can make a delicious ice-cream at home. You don’t need much for this. In fact, this recipe calls for just 4 simple ingredients. The one thing you will probably want to have is an ice-cream maker in order to get this smooth and even texture.
These refreshing green bars are so good for you! They contain avocado, peppermint
Almond blueberry cheesecake
Vegan cheesecakes can be your go-to desserts on a low glycemic diet. They are usually based on cashews and coconuts which both are great for health. Such ingredients don’t cause insulin spikes even though they are sweet and delicious. I would recommend skipping cornstarch and maple syrup (and use stevia instead), but in general, this dessert is just incredible!
Delicious lemon balls
Energy balls are my favorite snack on a go. It’s very easy to make them one day and then store in a
Chocolate cream pie
This collection turned out a little bit too chocolaty which I didn’t plan, but I can’t resist sharing this beautiful recipe with you. Pies are such comfort foods especially for the autumn time when there is nothing better than a cup of warming tea and a piece of a
Cinnamon mug cake
I don’t know who discovered a mug cake for the first time, but it was a genius idea! Sometimes I don’t have time or energy to cook, but
If you want your meals to stay fresh longer, you should use eco-friendly glass containers like these ones:
That’s all for today. I hope you will try these yummy recipes and let me know which one is your favorite.
As a final note, don’t go crazy with desserts – even the healthiest ones are not great for you if they are in excess. Always keep in mind that the more sweets you consume, the more likely it impacts your health and weight loss. So don’t overindulge. Have your dessert when you need it but keep portions small and consider eating more savory foods instead.
