(Mind Over Munch) – Sweet & simple 5 ingredient desserts that are so easy to make at home! I’ve got three 5 ingredient recipes for quick and easy desserts to share.

They’re satisfyingly indulgent, but lightened up with the help of Truvia’s new Sweet Complete™ and Confectioners sweeteners!

First, I’m sharing some gluten-free PB & Jam Thumbprint Cookies. Then for a simple no-bake dessert recipe, I’ll show you how to make Buckeyes.

And last but not least: an unbelievably easy Strawberry Shortcake recipe featuring my 3 ingredient biscuits!

Whether you’re looking for easy dessert recipes or healthy desserts that don’t sacrifice on flavor, I hope you’ll give one of these 5 ingredient recipes a try!


Welcome! I’m Alyssia Sheikh, and I’m the founder of Mind Over Munch. What began as my personal challenge to eat clean for 100 days on Instagram has become a journey of sharing recipes, fitness tips and general advice for your healthy lifestyle!

Alyssia-SHEIKH-180-2On the Mind Over Munch website, you’ll find delicious recipes that are guilt-free and figure-friendly alternatives to your favorite foods (and more!) without sacrificing any flavor. I am a group fitness instructor and personal trainer, and while I love exercise–I’ll be the first to say that weight loss, weight maintenance, and muscle gain are mostly dependent on diet (although a good balance of diet, exercise, and rest are all crucial to incorporate into your regular regimen!). Through this resource, you’ll find recipes that are appropriate for you regardless of your fitness and health goals. These recipes are NOT just for people dieting–these are for people who want to maintain a healthy lifestyle, and learn how to enjoy the foods they love without ousting anything from their diet.

My philosophy on food revolves around “moderation” being key, and not depriving yourself of things you want. I believe that allowing yourself to enjoy the foods you crave is essential to prevent overindulging. The problem is that most of us don’t truly practice “moderation.” Eating out once a week used to be “moderate,” but for many dining out daily is now the norm. I live in NYC and am a huge foodie, so I of course love to indulge in a not-so-light-meal every once in a while.
