Hi Hungry Girl,
Dessert is the hardest part about dieting for me... I have such a sweet tooth! What are some summery desserts I can make and still look good at the beach?
Hi Dessert Me,
No worries, and no need to give up dessert... These perfect-for-summer sweets will be your new BFFs!
Upside-Down Peach-Blueberry Pie
1/8th of pie: 104 calories, 0.5g total fat (0g sat fat), 98mg sodium, 27.5g carbs, 3g fiber, 15g sugars, 1.5g protein
Too hot to turn on the oven? Make this stovetop fruit pie
, complete with a graham-cracker topping that provides just enough crust without weighing down the whole dessert. And only around 100 calories per slice! I absolutely love
Oreo Cheesecake Dream Cake
1/8th of cake: 169 calories, 7.5g total fat (4g sat fat), 314mg sodium, 19.5g carbs, 0.5g fiber, 8g sugars, 10.5g protein
A slice of chocolate-cookie cheesecake for less than 200 calories? Yep, you read that right! This recipe
delivers classic cheesecake flavor without the oversized calorie count. The combo of reduced-fat cream cheese and light ricotta is incredible, and using Oreo Thins instead of classic Oreos helps keep the stats nice and low. Too good to pass up.
Spiralized Apple Pie
1/2 of recipe (about 2/3 cup): 101 calories, 0g total fat (0g sat fat), 78mg sodium, 26g carbs, 2.5g fiber, 17.5g sugars, 0.5g protein
Why should spiralized veggies have all the fun? This recipe
rocks! You get the texture of noodles with the taste of gooey apple pie. And it's perfect for times when you don't want to bake an entire pie. The ability to make this dessert is reason enough to treat yourself to a table-top spiral vegetable slicer. (Love our Veggetti Pro
Fro Yo Grapesicles
1/4th of recipe (about 10 grapes): 70 calories, <0.5g total fat (0g sat fat), 13mg sodium, 15.5g carbs, 1g fiber, 13g sugars, 3.5g protein
Straight from the pages of Clean & Hungry
, this might be the ultimate summer dessert
. Frozen grapes covered with a sweet yogurt coating... They're like mini popsicles! And you can have 10 of 'em for 70 calories. That's what I call guilt-free! Bonus: They're totally cute and fun to make.
Strawberry Pretzel Pie
1/8th of pie: 117 calories, 2g total fat (1.5g sat fat), 83mg sodium, 26.5g carbs, 3.5g fiber, 10g sugars, 3.5g protein
The combo of strawberries and pretzels is totally underrated. You get sweet fruity flavor with a pop of salty crunch! And this pie
is perfect for the lazy days of summer -- no oven required, and it cooks in 10 minutes.
Slow-Cooker Scalloped Peaches
1/8th of recipe (about 2/3 cup): 104 calories, 3g total fat (0.5g sat fat), 82mg sodium, 20.5g carbs, 2.5g fiber, 17.5g sugars, 1.5g protein
Your slow cooker's good for more than just soups and stews. This recipe
is next level! Just toss a few ingredients in your slow cooker; then set it and forget it. All the taste of yummy peach pie, without all the carby calories that come with heavy crust. Mega score.
Upside-Down Apple Pie
1/8th of recipe (1 slice): 80 calories, 0.5g total fat (0 sat fat), 96mg sodium, 22.5g carbs, 2g fiber, 12g sugars, 0.5g protein
is one of the lightest HG dessert creations in existence. Have a big ol' slice of apple pie for just 80 calories! You get the sweet, cinnamon-y flavor of the classic dessert, complete with a layer of crust. YUM!
Chocolate & PB Stuffed Strawberries
Entire recipe: 148 calories, 4.5g total fat (1.5g sat fat), 187mg sodium, 21.5g carbs, 5.5g fiber, 11.5g sugars, 10.5g protein
Sweet single-serving perfection! Three ingredients are all you need to create the perfect dessert for one
. The flavors of PB&J, plus chocolate. It doesn't get any better than that...
