I have a bad habit of craving something sweet after dinner. I try to go for a cup of tea, and as much as I’d like to say that does the trick, it doesn’t. I’ve learned to have an arsenal of low-cal desserts, ready for consumption the moment sugar cravings hit.
These five delicious desserts are all under 200 calories. While I can’t lie and say I don’t sneak ice cream and brownies every once in a while, these five go-to sweet treats keep my calorie-fests at bay.
Berries and Chocolate Sauce:
Top a combo of blueberries, raspberries, strawberries and blackberries with two tablespoons of chocolate sauce. This fiber-packed sweet and delicious treat will also give you a jolt of vitamin C.
A freezer aisle favorite, this flavorful dessert is always free of fat and low in calories. My personal favorites include mango, lemon and mixed berry.
As a life-long lover of bananas and chocolate (together or separate) there’s nothing I appreciate more than a chocolate-covered banana. Dip a banana in chocolate, freeze it and drizzle with nuts.
Skinny Cow Ice Cream Bars:
Open my freezer any day of the week and you’ll always find a pack (or two) of Skinny Cow Ice Cream Bars. My personal favorite flavors are mint chip, cookies and cream, and peanut butter vanilla, yum!
From pineapples to grapefruit, fruits are often even more delicious warm and toasted. Grilling fruits enhances their natural sweetness and adds a new depth of flavor to an already healthy snack. Get creative and eat up!
