If you’re the type of person who has to have dessert after dinner, then don’t give it up just because you’re on a diet! You can easily save enough calories to have a healthy dessert that won’t ruin your entire day. Here are some delicious low-calorie dessert recipes that you can make and portion out so you can enjoy them throughout the week.
Low Calorie Key Lime and Strawberry Pie
- 1 low calorie graham cracker pie crust ( 9 inches)
- 1 (8 ounce) container fat free whipped topping
- 1/4 cup freshly squeezed lime juice
- 2 tablespoons lime zest
- 1 crushed strawberry
- 1 (6 ounce) container key lime pie flavored yogurt
- 1 (6 ounce) container strawberry yogurt
- 1/4 cup boiling water
- 1 (.3 ounce) box sugar-free lime gelatin
Start by boiling your water and dissolving the gelatin into it. Mix until there are no more chunks left, and then add in the lime juice, crushed strawberry and lime zest. Stir the yogurt until it’s well-combined and then fold in the whipped topping gently. Once you’re done with this, pour the filling into the pie crust and leave it in your fridge overnight. When you cut it the next morning it will be light, fluffy and delicious! It makes 8 slices of pie and can be a great dessert to enjoy for the entire family.
- 1 box of cake mix
- 1 can of diet soda
This recipe couldn’t be any easier to make and it’s very low in calories. All you do is grab a box of your favorite cake mix. This could be spice, white, yellow, chocolate or any other flavor that you like. After this, mix the cake mix with a can of your choice diet soda. You won’t mix in any of the ingredients that are listed on the box, like the eggs and the oil. All that you do is mix the soda and the cake, then bake according to box directions.
Some great combinations include: chocolate cake and regular diet soda, spice cake with diet soda, white cake with diet cherry soda, white cake with diet orange soda or chocolate cake with diet cherry soda. The combinations are endless and all of them taste great! The flavor of the regular diet soda will actually bake off while in the oven, so if you only want to taste the cake, then use a plain diet soda.
- 1 box white cake mix
- 1 can diet lemon lime soda
- 1 bag frozen mixed berries
Start by greasing a casserole pan and then pour the mixed berries into the bottom. From here, sprinkle the cake mix over the top until all of it is covering the berries. Next you will slowly pour the lemon lime soda over the cake WITHOUT doing any mixing. It will bubble, but this will go down and it won’t affect the taste. It’s okay to leave dry cake spots, as this will taste great later.
Bake in the oven at 350 degrees for 40 minutes or until the cake in the pan is golden brown. Let this cool for 10 minutes and then serve either on its own or with some frozen yogurt. This is just like a cobbler, except it doesn’t have all the calories. The dry spots of the cake mix will harden in the oven, which will give it a nice crunch that tastes great.
- large package sugar free Jell-O
- can mixed fruit in extra light syrup
Mix up the Jell-O like you normally would and put it in the fridge to cool for around an hour. After this, drain the fruit so that the syrup is out of it and pour the mixed fruit into the container with the Jell-O. Put this back into the fridge and leave in until the gelatin is completely settled. This is very low calorie, yet will help get rid of your sweet tooth at any time. You can add on whipped cream if you want to add another flavor as well!
Any of these recipes can serve as weekday or weekend desserts. They are great to keep in the fridge, but they can also be brought to parties. Eat one of these instead of a calorie packed dessert and you will be able to enjoy sweetness whenever you want! There’s no reason you can’t have your dessert and eat it too.
