You can view dessert as an exclamation point at the end of a meal or a pick-me-up during a long day; either way, it’s supposed to make you feel good. We’ve all had that dessert that makes us feel bloated or groggy afterwards, but that doesn’t always have to be the case. There are plenty of Metro Detroit bakeries and treat shops that offer healthy desserts that are not only made with healthy ingredients but taste good too!

Organic Ingredients: IChillyn Cafe

Holding themselves to a higher standard and being meticulous over choosing the best ingredients, IChillyn Cafe is a new store in downtown Rochester that offers vegan and nitrogen ice cream. Each of their flavors are gluten-free, non-GMO and all-natural, ensuring you are getting the freshest scoops around. If you’re in the mood for something other than ice cream, the store also features gluten-free crepes. You can follow the store on Facebook, but only if you want to see their newest, tantalizing dessert offerings.
