Though McDonald's new Apple Dippers with Low Fat Caramel Sauce are aimed at kids, you won't have to show fake ID if you order them yourself. With just 97 calories, 1 gram of fat, and 22 (mostly good) carbs, these crunchy delights are a yummy and nutritious way to satisfy your sweet tooth.
You're Pudding Me On...
Fat Free, Sugar Free Jell-O Instant Pudding is a wonderful thing! Try layering some (chocolate, vanilla or banana cream) with crushed Chips Ahoy Snack Crisps (of Nabisco 100 calorie packs fame) and topping them with Fat Free Reddi-Wip. You can easily keep this dessert down to around 125 calories.
Dining Out Dessert Tips!
Order fruit sorbet for dessert. You won't do much damage.
Does your fave restaurant offer berries and whipped cream? Order the berries alone. No need to dump a glop of fluffy white fat on them!
Need to satisfy a craving for sweets after dinner? Have a mint at the restaurant (it will temporarily calm you down), then treat yourself to a guilt-free treat at home!
Float of Confidence
Jealous of people who order ice cream shakes and floats? Satisfy your craving for one at home by concocting a 100 calorie ice cream float with diet-friendly ingredients. Try plopping a scoop of Dreyer's Grand Light Vanilla into a glass of your favorite diet soda. We recommend using Canfield's Diet Chocolate Fudge, Diet Rite Red Raspberry, Diet A & W Cream, or Diet Barq's Root Beer. Yum! And if you're feeling super-adventurous, squirt some fat free whipped cream on top!
HUNGRY GIRL WARNING!
Blunder Down Under! Can't resist Outback's Thunder Down Under dessert? This monster chunk of chocolatey lard contains a whopping 1,220 calories, 78 grams of fat, and 130 carbs! Sounds like the perfect dessert for a family of 10, or a small to medium-sized elephant.
CHEW ON THIS: October is National Dessert Month. Celebrate cautiously.
