4 Nap-Inducing Dessert Recipes

Are you looking for some tasty desserts that are rich, hearty, and will put you into a relaxing food coma? Then you need to focus on foods that have refined carbohydrates and healthy sugars, as these items will increase your insulin levels, calm your body, and decrease your blood sugar levels. Doing this properly will not only give you a delicious after-dinner dessert, but it will also let you get a little rest in your favorite arm chair.

Here are a few recipes you should consider.

1) Hearty Dessert Pie

You might not think of meat and vegetables as a reasonable dessert option, but you can pack various types of produce and some chicken or steak in a hearty dessert pie. Mix your meat and various veggies (such as broccoli and carrots) in a pie crust, add a can of Alfredo sauce, spread it evenly, cover the top, and bake for 40 minutes at 350 degrees to create a delicious dessert pie that goes well with any meal.

2) Delicious Fruit Sorbet

Fruit and sorbet are both heavy in carbs and sugars, which makes mixing them together a fun and sleep-inducing idea. Mix a half-cup of sorbet with a half-cup of diced fruit for the best effect. Eating more than a whole cup of this dessert is a little too heavy, though, so make sure to share!

3) English Muffin With Honey

Honey is a superfood that really does make everything taste better. English muffins are a nice concentration of complex carbohydrates that mix well with the high sugar content of honey. Toast an English muffin, top it with a teaspoon of honey, and chow down after dinner.

4) Strawberry Cottage Cheese

Cottage cheese is so thick and creamy that even a cup of this milk product will likely put you to sleep quickly. However, if you mix a cup of it with a cup of sliced strawberries, you'll have a truly rich and hearty dessert. This is another one that you should share with your loved ones in order to spread the delicious goodness.

Try one of these dessert ideas by choosing one that suits your personal taste and incorporating it into your next meal. You might be surprised at just how good they'll taste! And for all the ingredients you'll need, stop by Villa's Market in Nogales, AZ.
