Dessert under 300 Calories? Yes!
Who does not love to enjoy something sweet after a meal, or as a treat all by itself? The problem is the calorie count usually creates guilt. We live in a world of plenty and that has gotten us into some trouble with our waistlines, but you are going to love this beautiful, sweet and low calorie dessert! Not only is this dessert delicious and low calorie, it’s so easy to make and its also versatile. We had a store-bought Angel-Food cake on hand. We also had a can of no sugar-added mandarin oranges some Greek yogurt (lemon flavor) and a few plump berries in the fridge. It took about 3 minutes to make the dessert.
By eliminating the sugar and substituting yogurt for whipping cream the result is sublime!
- Tear cake slices into bite-size pieces, arrange on a plate (Use 1/12th of the store-bought cake per portion) calorie count for 1 slice of cake.
- top with fruit of your choice
- add a dollop of yogurt (any flavor you like)
- decorate with a few berries or perhaps some Pecans!
- drizzle with the tiniest bit of honey
Now sit back and savor ever morsel of this fresh-tasting, miracle of dessert! Its about the same calorie count as 20 potato chips, but so much more satisfying.
You can substitute any soft or juicy fruit. Strawberries are particularly good with Angel Food cake, but summer peaches would be lovely topped with fresh blueberries too. Grate some lime peel on top of fresh mango. Be a bit creative, use other yogurt flavors too. Tell us what you did to create your own version of this dessert! We’d love to learn something new from you!
