Healthy dessert


Desserts can be the bane for any wannabe dieter. While all of us love to wrap up a meal with a dessert, often they are rich and creamy and oozing with fat and sugars. If you are well on your way to shedding a few pounds, there is no need for you to skip the dessert completely. Do not deny yourself - instead plan for low fat desserts with clever substitutes. Use low-fat fresh fruits, nuts, skim milk, yogurt and fruit purees. All it takes are a few small lifestyle changes towards healthier and low-fat desserts and you won't be left craving!


  • You can keep the high fat pound cakes and frosted cakes at bay and instead make healthier choices like angel food cake.
  • Opt for low-fat cookies like ginger snaps, oatmeal cookies and fig bars
  • How about flavored gelatin instead of frappes and milkshakes ?
  • You can make a dessert of fresh fruits and low-fat yogurt.
  • Avoid store-bought goodies such as pies, cakes, croissants, pastries and muffins
  • You can use egg whites or egg substitutes in your baking.
  • Reduce amount of sugar in your favorite dessert recipes
  • Make good use of nuts and fruit in your low fat dessert recipes
  • Flavor your baking with the wafting essence of nutmeg, allspice and cinnamon or vanilla or lemon extracts
