Most people can’t imagine eating their donuts without sugar glaze, but this ingredient earned them their status as an unhealthy treat. Luckily, you can put a twist on them and make them super-sweet without using any refined sugar because there are many healthier alternatives on the market.

Natural Alternatives

If ditching sugar altogether isn’t an option for you, you can always try replacing it with healthier alternatives. Stevia and Splenda are the first ones that come to mind, but you can also use all sorts of natural sweeteners, from maple syrup to honey, as long as you don’t go overboard.

Just Add Fruits

Whenever you’re trying to make your desserts naturally sweet, fruits will be there to help you on your mission. They can make your donuts healthy by upping their fiber content, in addition to making them super-delicious.

Tasty Spreads

In addition to fruits, you can also use all sorts of different spreads as a topping. Making your own is the best possible option, but you should carefully check the labels if you’re using store-bought varieties so they wouldn’t pack more unhealthy ingredients than sugar glaze.
