According to the American Heart Association, you should be eating no more than six teaspoons of sugar a day. If you have a sweet tooth, this guideline can be a tough one to follow.

Because it's unhealthy to consume a lot sugar, it's important to make dessert count. With loads of fruit-based and even healthy dessert options out there, it's not hard to satisfy a craving while eating smart. Opting for dark chocolate instead of milk chocolate or spicing up Greek yogurt with different dried fruits are just a few ways to enjoy something sweet without going overboard.

Check out the slideshow above for desserts that are actually okay to eat.
