Treats to Eat Without the Guilt

Sometimes a dieter just needs something sweet - something deliciously rich without all the weight of calories - which will contribute to a very 'hip' hip.

Here are a few of our favorite, low calorie options when the Sweet Tooth Fairy strikes:

Fairy Yogurt, Light Fluffy Low Calorie Recipe

This is one of my favorite sweet treats.

Take a single serving container of LIGHT yogurt (110 calories or less) and mix with 1/4 a container of thawed Cool Whip FREE.

At 15 calories per serving, the entire container of Cool Whip FREE contains less than 400 calories - so 1/4 of a container is just under 100 calories.  

This sweet treat is absolutely rich and delicious with minimal fat and calories weighing in at about 200 calories. Sometimes I add a bit of Splenda and/or a flavoring extract. Rum extract tastes great with vanilla yogurt as does imitation vanilla.

Low Cal Egg Roll Fruit Wrapper Recipe

Egg roll wrappers can generally be found in the fresh produce section of your local market. For only 75 calories - you can enjoy four!

I fill mine with a bit of fresh, canned or thawed frozen fruit and add a bit of Splenda and ground cinnamon. Then I seal the edges and drop into boiling water.

They will sink - so be care that they don't stick to the bottom of your pot. They will slowly rise. I like mine a bit gummy, so I don't cook them long.

Once I remove them from the pot, I allow them to drain, then dust them with powdered sugar and add a dollop of fat free whipped topping.

Luscious Low Calorie Cocoa Recipe

Rich cocoa makes a delectable sweet treat for dieters when prepared with 1 cup of skim milk, heated. If you don't like the skim or zero fat variety of cow juice, then opt for 1 or 2 percent.

Add 1 Tablespoon of your favorite brand of powdered cocoa to 1 Tablespoon of water and mix into a paste.  

Add 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract or the imitation; actually I prefer the flavor of the imitation and in numerous surveys, so do most Americans. Next, add this chocolate paste to the warm milk.

Top with a few mini-marshmallows if desired and pop into the microwave until cocoa is foamy on top. Sprinkle with a bit of powdered sugar OR powdered cocoa.

If you don't wish to enjoy with marshmallows you can opt for the low calorie topping for an additional fifteen kcals.
