Looking for healthy recipes to make for Valentine’s Day? Here are over 50 recipes with everything from dessert to main dishes and beverages!

Valentine’s Day is right around the corner and whether you have a romantic date night, Galentine’s party with friends or a solo self-care night planned I wanted to round up some healthy Valentine’s Day recipes for you! I’ve got you covered with everything from desserts (lots of chocolate!) to main dishes and beverages.

We usually plan a night out for Valentine’s Day (which also happens to be my birthday), but with getting older and having kids we’ve been really enjoying our date nights in, so that’s probably what we’ll do this year. Might even take out the cloth napkins and fancy wine glasses. #adulting

Desserts

It’s so easy to just pick up a box of chocolates at the store for dessert, but if you really want to elevate your Valentine’s Day dinner I highly recommend making one of these homemade treats instead! With so many delicious options, from brownies and chocolate cake to chocolate-covered fruit and strawberry sorbet, there’s definitely something for everyone!
