Much like relationships, desserts can be very sweet. But, they can also be very complicated. Because not everyone has the time (or baking skills) to make a cake, let alone a batch of freshly churned homemade ice cream. And that is exactly why we're beginning a campaign for all the lazy sweets lovers out there to replace dessert with smoothies that taste like dessert (see what we did there?)

Smoothies are a much simpler, affordable approach to crafting a homemade treat on the fly. With very limited ingredients and time spent, you can whip up a decadent drinkable version of your favorite cake, cookie, muffin, or even ice cream. All you'll need is a blending apparatus, some frozen fruit, your liquid of choice, and a few spices depending upon your flavor of choice.

So read on for the fast and easy approach to smoothie-fying ten complicated dessert recipes.
