Diwali is incomplete without sweets. If diyas and new clothes add to the glamour of the festival of lights, delicacies like laddus, barfis, and dry fruits are an integral part of the celebrations.
But, is it possible for you to satiate all your sweet cravings during this festive season, and still not feel guilty?
Yes, it is! Here’s a list of wholesome sweets you can buy with a single click to ensure that you have a happy and sweet Diwali.
Who doesn’t love laddus? They are the very definition of Diwali for most of us, but it is also true that gorging on them, comes with a price.
But not anymore! This Diwali, leave the guilt behind and tuck into these delicious and nutritious laddus made with almonds, coconut powder, dates, ghee, organic jaggery and other healthy ingredients.
Who says traditions cannot catch up with contemporary tastes? This peanut-butter barfi from D-Alive is delicious, healthy and perfect for a Diwali snack.
The best part? It has zero refined sugar and gets its sweetness from coconut sugar and stevia instead.
3) Jagger Bombs—dry fruits and jaggery bites
Move away from fried snacks and packaged junk food, and stay powered this Diwali with these yummy “jagger bombs,” made from almonds, cashews, foxnuts, ghee, gondh, jaggery and pistachios.
4) Firecracker chocolates to match Diwali celebration
This year, opt for these eco-friendly “crackers” to get your chocolate fix. These will not only create an explosion of flavours in your mouth but also keep the skies smoke-free.
5) Homemade halwa mix complete with dry fruits and saffron
We love halwa, but preparing it from scratch is a back-breaking task.
