Do you ever have a craving, an itch, a need for something sweet? If you choose carefully, you don’t have to say no to all the sweets that pass you by. Instead, just select better-for-you treats that will feel like you’re cheating, without the guilt! Here are 4 desserts that are perfect options for filling your sweet cravings.
Popcorn – I love popcorn as a dessert because you can have a few big scoops without a lot of calories. If you’ve really got the munchies, popcorn is the ticket! Lightly butter the kernels and skip the salt if you can.
Fruit Parfait – Layer a low-fat or non-fat yogurt between your favorite fruits like blueberries, apples, raspberries, strawberries, or grapes. You can make this dessert a bit different every time. It will give you that sweet while counting for a daily fruit serving.
Spinach Smoothies – You can pack just about any nutrient you need into a smoothie and still make it come out tasting great. Spinach is a perfect addition along with fruits as you likely won’t even notice the taste!
Fiber One Cheesecake Bars – Start with a layer of graham crackers and then fill up on a creamy cheesecake layer that is topped with either salted caramel or strawberry sweetness.
Or combine two of your favorites from above, like sweet and savory combo of popcorn and Fiber One Cheesecake Bars!
You can splurge for your slice of cheesecake wrapped up in a individually wrapped bar that helps you stay in a healthy portion size. Fiber One Cheesecake Bars contain 150 calories, 6 grams of fat, and 20 percent of the daily fiber recommendation (5 grams). You don’t have to say no to all desserts, all the time, you can splurge occasionally while still being responsible.
