Delicious After Dinner Desserts
Who doesn’t like to end their day with a sweet treat? It is common practice around the world to indulge in some dessert after dinner, be it a little bite of something delicious or a full-sized dessert after a savoury meal. Some prefer to pick up more Westernised desserts, while others lean towards Indian desserts after dinner. Some even skip the savoury part of the meal altogether and indulge in dessert for dinner. The options are truly endless. So, if you want to kickstart your dessert after meals journey today, here are some sweet dishes after dinner that you can try.
1. Fresh Cream Pineapple Cake:
A light and fruity dessert is one of the best desserts to eat after dinner, especially if you have had a heavy meal. A fresh cream and pineapple cake, for instance, will bring respite from the richest of meals, be it an Italian feast or a Mughlai indulgence. Theobroma’s Fresh Cream Pineapple Cake is a great pick, because our homemade pineapple compote offers the tartness and tropical flavours that will cut through the richness of any savoury meal. Finished with slivered almonds for crunch, this dessert is one that you can enjoy in solitude or bring with you for a dinner party.
For those who prefer eating Indian desserts after their evening meal, a decadent rasmalai can be the perfect way to end a feast. Originating from Orissa, this dessert is made by soaking cottage cheese in thick reduced milk, and topping it with dry fruits and nuts as well as saffron for a hint of luxury. You can enjoy this thick and luscious desi dessert any time of the day, but it feels extra special to consume it after dinner. This is also an easy dessert to serve guests if you are hosting a dinner party or special celebration in your home
3. Cookies and milk:
This one is for people who like to nibble on something sweet after dinner but don’t want to eat something too heavy. Cookies are small bites of heaven that can satisfy your sweet tooth without going overboard or being too heavy. There are so many different cookies to choose from, be it a simple butter cookie or a substantial cookie with complex flavours and textures. Theobroma’s menu offers some of the most popular cookies in India – our Chocolate Chip Cookies are a bestseller across all our stores and for good reason. Our homemade vanilla flavoured cookie dough is laden with dark chocolate chunks for a flavourful and textural experience.
Looking for a handheld dessert after lunch or dinner? Go for a cupcake, which is easily available and just as easy to eat too. You also have so many options with cupcakes, because you can find them in so many different flavours such as red velvet, chocolate, vanilla, and more. Cupcakes are also a fun choice of post-dinner dessert because they are usually adorned with decorative frosting and fun elements to create excitement. Walk into a Theobroma store near you or check out our website to browse all the different cupcakes on our menu. We make our products fresh daily, so you can expect world-class flavours.
Another pick from the Indian desserts category, halwa is often considered to be soul food. Halwa originated in Persia and is very commonly enjoyed throughout the Middle East too. While this dessert is usually eaten during the winter season or at weddings and festivals in India, it is super easy to make and can be eaten any time of day at home as well. There are many types of halwa out there, from the simple and homely Aate Ka Halwa (Wheat Halwa) to the luxurious Gaajar Ka Halwa (Carrot Halwa) that is a favourite across the nation. If you’re looking for a sweet treat after dinner, you can easily whip up halwa in no time.
6. Fruit custard:
If you don’t like overly sweet desserts but still get peckish after dinner, a fruit custard is the right pick for you. That’s because any sweetness of the custard is easily offset by the fresh fruit like apples, oranges, grapes, bananas, and more. This dessert is also a filling and substantial choice if you’re looking to eat dessert for dinner, because it’s easy to eat and allows you to fill up on desserts without the extra guilt. You can whip up fruit custard at home in a jiffy if you’re ever craving it or need something to serve guests last minute. Fruit custard is always a hit at dinner parties too, perfect to eat with friends and family.
7. Chocolate cake:
Is there really anything as satisfying as a moist, luscious chocolate cake after dinner? We think not! You can choose from a myriad of chocolatey options on Theobroma’s menu, from our Dutch Truffle Cake and our Chocoholic Cake to our Opium Cake and our Hazelnut Praline Mousse Cake. All our chocolate cakes are made on the daily with the freshest ingredients, which means that you can expect fresh and delicious chocolate flavours in every bite. With a presence in cities like Gurgaon, Mumbai, Chennai, Bangalore, and more, Theobroma has made it easier than ever to order dessert right to your doorstep.
8. Lemon tart:
Many people consider lemon tarts to be the best dessert after dinner, because this dessert is the perfect way to cut through any fatty or dairy heavy meals. The biscuity crust offers a beautiful snap and sweetness, which pairs beautifully with the tangy lemon curd inside. The lemon curd also acts as a palate cleanser, bringing it back to life after a heavy meal. This is a fantastic pick for people who want to expand their horizons beyond chocolate desserts. It is also a good option if you don’t like chocolate or prefer desserts that are not too sweet.
Every dinner will be fifty times more exciting with dessert options like these to choose from!
