If you decided that 2018 would be the year you got healthy, you may have already improved your diet massively and be feeling on top of the world. Fruit is the way forward for those who take care of their bodies and filling up on it at every meal can do wonders for the soul. But with all that healthy eating and exercise, you may also be missing the small pleasures in life that you had in abundance before – such as indulgent desserts. Here at Deliveroo, we believe it's a good idea to treat yourself once in a while. That's why we've rounded up some naughty but nice, fruity desserts in Dubai from well-known eateries like Wild and the Moon.
1. Acai (No) Cheesecake
Is there anything more incredibly indulgent than a rich and thick slice of cheesecake to finish off a meal? It's a guilty pleasure for many, but it doesn't have to be naughty and isn't always calorie-laden. The Acai (No) Cheesecake at Wild and the Moon is a prime example of something that mixes pleasure, with a passion for wholesome goodness. This decadent dessert will bring back all the memories of the ultimate comfort pudding, without any of the stodginess. It's completely dairy-free and features awesome acai, heavenly hazelnuts and delectable dates. A cheesecake without cheese? You heard it here first.
2. Assorted Nougat Box
If you have a sweet tooth one of the best spots to check out in Dubai is La Cure Gourmande. This is basically the UAE's answer to Willy Wonka's Chocolate Factory and it's sure to bring out your inner Augustus Gloop. But don't worry, it's not all going straight to your hips – there are some lighter, fruitier options here. One standout selection is the Assorted Nougat Box, which comes in a small or large size. It features fruity bite-size bits of moreish nougat in various flavours and is great as a gift. Alternatively, devour it all yourself as a special treat – you earned it.
3. Ice Cream Mix
Another prefect way to treat your taste buds after a filling meal is to go for some creamy, cool ice cream. Luckily, for Dubai residents, there's an absolutely awesome ice cream joint right on your doorstep. This is, of course, Booza Homemade Levantines Frosties – the experts in authentic, Lebanese, handmade ice cream. There are so many fruity options to choose from, we recommend going for the mix. This is a 0.5L cup filled with six flavours of your choice. There are some seriously refreshing varieties as well, such as the mango and the passion fruit. Great for sharing or, you know, polishing off on your own.
4. Heavenly Mixed-Berry Waffle
The name says it all. This Heavenly Mixed-Berry Waffle will whisk you off to a happy place where you don't have a care in the world. Every bite of this sumptuous offering from Granny's Waffles will spark off a party in your mouth. But don't worry, the combination of strawberries, blueberries, blackberries and raspberries makes this one heck of a healthy option. No need to feel any guilt when tucking into this one!
