These low calorie desserts won't spoil your diet


These low calorie desserts won't spoil your diet

Food lovers who have recently travelled to Chattogram may have heard of a popular dessert - Barcode Cafe's R.I.P Diet. 

The name says that this rich and high-calorie food may ruin the diet of a health-conscious person. But is it mandatory for a dessert to be the funeral of a diet? Are the sweet lovers bound to deduct the pleasure of having dessert, while controlling their diet? 

The answer is, no. There are, in fact, many dessert items that are low in calories and can be taken while on diet.

Peanut Butter Pie

This low-calorie dessert can be made with fat-free whipped cream, reduced-fat cream cheese and peanut butter on top of a sweet graham cracker crust, without baking. This nutritious food not only satisfies your craving for dessert but also provides a lot of energy. 

Banana-Nutella Crepes

Although the shape of crepes is different, the method is a lot like Patisapta pitha of our country. Instead of Kheer, you need to put a layer of Nutella and thin slices of banana as the stuffing.

Chocolate Fruit Dip

If a bowl of nutritious fruits can't satisfy your dessert craving, then why not dip them into chocolates? Both cream cheese and cocoa powder-based dip can be tried for a wonderful experience for sweet tooth.

Banana Bread

Not only as a dessert, but this food also can be a good breakfast. To make it healthier, you just need to cut the amount of butter and add an extra mashed banana, along with a bit of Greek yoghurt.

Chocolate Chip Cookies

Yes, Chocolate Chip Cookies can also be healthy and the low-calorie version requires all the typical ingredients except the butter and chocolate chip portion for a lighter approach.

Chocolate-Orange Muffins

Unsweetened almond milk, orange flavouring or orange zest and a touch of dark chocolate; it doesn't take much to make this fantastic chocolate orange muffin. And the taste? You can taste the muffin without feeling guilty while on diet.

Frozen Fruit Skewers

Applying the right recipe, you can still enjoy the taste of ice cream even on a diet. 

Frozen Fruit Skewers can be prepared by cutting the fruit into pieces, sticking them on a stick, spreading the semi-sweet chocolate on top and freezing, which is a healthy solution to your ice cream craving.

Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

It is really an underrated food in terms of taste and goodness. Baked oats and a surprise burst of chocolaty sweetness are combined in this delightfully chewy cookie.

Tiramisu

Although Tiramisu is not a low-calorie meal, you can make a healthier version of it by using beaten egg whites and whipped cream cheese instead of egg yolks and mascarpone.

Chocolate Pudding

This diet-friendly chocolate pudding is made with coconut milk, no-calorie sweetener and cocoa powder.
