Desserts for 300 Calories or Less

In the age of dieting and eating less, desserts have been wrongly labeled as “sin foods” by many diet plans simply because of its sugar content.  Seriously, why keep yourself bored with a bunch of stale “diet foods” when you can still have fun eating the things you love?  All it takes is using alternative ingredients and, presto, you got yourself a neat dessert in half the usual calories!

Cheesecake brownies

Let the smooth texture of cheesecake and decadent taste of brownie slide down your throat without the guilt.  Using low-fat cream cheese and espresso granules, this amazing dessert only contains 140 calories per serving.

Mini ice cream cakes

These bite-sized wonders are perfect for your daughter’s tea parties.  Simply use any ice cream or frozn yogurt and flavor it according to your preference.  Then, assemble and freeze the cakes a day in advance.

Choco-fruity-nut clusters

What better way to say dessert with chocolate?  However, this low-calorie version uses dark chocolate, which is packed with beneficial antioxidants, dolloped over bits of cranberries, raisins, apricots, peanuts, and cashews.

Low-calorie tiramisu

This shortcut version to the classic dessert needs only one-third of chilling time.  Use unsweetened cocoa, fat-free cream cheese and mascarpone, and bittersweet chocolate to make this tiramisu packed with antioxidants and stripped off unnecessary calories.

Creamy chocolate pudding

At first glance, this dessert appears to be loaded with goodness.  It is true, except that it uses low-fat dairy ingredients, making it a completely deceptive dessert–in a good way, that is.
