No matter how hard you try and stick to a calorie-strict diet, sometimes you just want to treat yourself to a sweet snack or dessert. But instead of grabbing a donut or raiding the vending machine the next time your sweet tooth won't let it go, opt for one of these healthy desserts instead. Each of these healthy dessert recipes works out at 100 calories (or less!) per portion, so you can still treat yourself to something you fancy without going way over your daily limit of calories and ruining all your hard work!
1. Healthy Mango & Raspberry Fruity Rollups
Made from just one ingredient - fresh or frozen mango or raspberry - these healthy mango and raspberry fruity rollups are perfect for snacking on during summer! You can eat up to five rollups without going over 100 calories.
2. Healthy Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Bites
Nibble on two of these healthy peanut butter chocolate chip cookie dough bites for a quick burst of energy and to satisfy your sugary craving. Just remember to stop at two to keep it under 100 calories!
3. Raw Vegan Brownie Bites
Indulge in one raw vegan brownie bite to fill your body with goodness and treat your soul to some chocolate heaven without going over 100 calories. One might not sound like a lot, but these are seriously rich and buttery!
4. Skinny Tiramisu Frozen Yogurt
Instead of scooping out some chocolate ice cream, make this skinny tiramisu frozen yoghurt the next time you want a chilled treat. 1 portion is half of the recipe. I love frozen yogurt more than ice cream and - just like the raw vegan brownie bites - this stuff is seriously rich, so a little goes a long way.
5. Healthy Four-Ingredient Soft-Serve Chocolate Peanut Butter Ice Cream
For a hit of potassium, try making your next frozen treat with bananas instead of ice cream or frozen yogurt. To keep under 100 calories, have just half of the recipe and savour every bite of the rich and creamy soft-serve texture.
6. Skinny Red Velvet Baked Cake Donuts
Did you know you can eat a whole donut without breaking over the 100 calorie mark? If it's a skinny red velvet baked cake donut then you totally can. Even the frosting is included in the calorie count!
7. The Best Ever Healthy Chocolate Chip Cookies
Limit yourself to just one cookie and you'll find yourself nibbling on a deliciously crumbly chocolate chip cookie (made with real ingredients - no weird sugar or fat replacements) for less than 100 calories.
8. One-Bowl Healthy Pumpkin Brownies
One healthy pumpkin brownie (1/9 of the pan) comes in at less than 100 calories and provides you with a ridiculous amount of your Recommended Daily Allowance of all kinds of vitamins. Who knew brownies could be legitimately healthy?!
9. Skinny Chocolate & Strawberry Cheesecake Bars
You don't expect to be able to eat chocolate and cheesecake without blowing 100 calories, do you? But when you make these skinny chocolate & strawberry cheesecake bars and cut them into 9, you totally can!
10. Healthy Single-Serving Carrot Cake for One
Instead of devouring a giant slice of carrot cake at Starbucks which comes in at I-don't-even-want-to-know-how-many calories, make this healthy single serving carrot cake for one. The cake as a whole is pretty huge, so in order to keep the calorie count to less than 100, you'll need to divide it into 2. But you still get the frosting!
11. Skinny Chocolate Peanut Butter Rice Krispie Treats for Two
These skinny chocolate peanut butter Rice Krispie treats are genuinely huge, so in order to keep your portion to less than 100 calories, you'll need to divide these treats into four - not two. But I'm not complaining - chocolate and peanut butter for less than 100 calories? Yes please!
Great desserts! Looking forward to seeing you again at Full Plate Thursday tonight!
Hope you are having a great day!
Thanks so much, Helen. I'll be there!
