  • If you’ve got a sweet tooth, dessert may be the hardest thing for you to give up when cutting back on calories or sticking to a healthy diet. You can reach your diet goals while giving in to your cravings if you choose sweet treat with fewer calories:

  • • Use artificial sweetener instead of real sugar.

    • Replace the cream in recipes with evaporated skim milk.

    • Use healthier whole wheat flour instead of white flour.

    • Use apple sauce as a baking substitute for up to half the oil in a recipe.

    • Use 3 tablespoons of unsweetened cocoa powder as a baking substitute for every 30 grams of unsweetened chocolate.

    • Make up for using less sugar by adding flavor with vanilla extract or lemon zest.

    • Substitute just the egg whites for whole eggs.

    • Skip the top crust when making pies & use fresh berries.

    • Sprinkle cookies, brownies or cakes with a little cinnamon, cocoa powder, or powdered sugar in place of frosting.

    • When you’re making your own dessert, you’re also in control of portion sizes. Bake mini-cupcakes, tarts & cookies; if baking brownies or a similar dessert in a large pan, cut the finished product into small portions so you won’t be tempted to take too much. Don’t go back for seconds.

    • Make low-sugar fruit sorbet trying flavors like mango, raspberry & strawberry.

    • Make fresh fruit salads discovering new tastes like star fruit or opt for a mixture of berries or melon cubes.

    • Try fat-free frozen yogurt topped with fresh fruit or a fresh fruit puree.

    • Try a baked apple-cooking fruit can intensify its flavors.
