Just because you are looking for the best way to lose weight, doesn’t mean you have to give up desserts and after-dinner snacks entirely.
The need for something sweet after dinner is quite common, and there are many healthy, nutritious dessert options that can be included in your healthy eating plan.
While traditional desserts like ice-cream, cakes, blocks of chocolate and bags of lollies are tempting, they usually contain a high amount of calories and very little nutrition.
Try to opt for homemade, fruit-based sweet treats that are low in calories and offer added nutrition benefits of fibre, calcium and antioxidants.
Here are some examples of low calorie, after-dinner snacks that will hit your sweet spot without ruining your weight loss goals.
Mixed Melon Cups
Using a small icecream scoop, simply scoop out the flesh of some honeydew, rockmelon and watermelon. Arrange the scoops in a dessert glass or jar and garnish with fresh mint leaves. This simple, easy-to-prepare dessert option is fresh, colourful and filled with nutritional value.
This refreshing treat is a great alternative to store bought icecream tubs which are typically full of fat and sugar. Using only 4 simple ingredients, you can make ahead of time and enjoy as a guilt-free after-dinner treat. Kids and friends will love it too.
Nothing beats the flavour of chocolate, and it’s no surprise that chocolate is one of the most craved foods in the world. These nifty, Blueberry and Hazelnut Choc Pots can be made ahead of time, and while they hit the sweet spot, they also deliver fibre, antioxidants and essential fatty acids.
Using only 6 ingredients, this simply dessert is a good option to turn to when you’re short on time and want to whip up a tasty treat on short notice. Using healthy, fresh ingredients like pineapple, Greek Yoghurt, cinnamon, honey and lime zest, this dessert gets its zesty sweetness from natural ingredients, rather than refined sugar, making it a healthier option compared to other types of sweet, after-dinner treats.
Filled with Fibre, Vitamin C, Copper and Folate, this recipe is a great after-dinner option because it is quick to prepare and uses common ingredients probably found in your pantry. At only 93 calories a serve, you can safely include these in your healthy eating plan!
