Other Low-Fat Desserts to Try

If you're on a diet but craving dessert, check out these other great dieting desserts:

  • Jell-O. Jell-O is well known as a low-calorie dessert, making it perfect for those of you on a diet. Plus, it's easy and quick to make. Whip this together and you'll have the perfect dessert to satisfy you after dinner.
  • Popsicles. Popsicles are low in fat and calories, and can be low in sugar if you find the right ones. You can also make your own using whatever juice or drink you like! Make boozy popsicles if you're feeling particularly fun!
  • Chocolate almond bark. This is a great dessert that won't pack on the pounds. While chocolate desserts are often very high in fat, this one is not. It's fairly simple to make, and delicious!
  • Applesauce. This might be a bit of an odd suggestion, but in a pinch applesauce can definitely work as a dessert! When combined with cinnamon, applesauce has just the right amount of sweetness to satisfy a craving. Plus, it's very healthy for you. This is double the case if you make your own applesauce.
  • Fruit salad. Mixing together a fruit salad, or buying a pre-made one from the store, is a great way to give yourself a healthy and delicious dessert. Buy some low-cal cool whip to throw on top so it feels more like a dessert, or buy some low-fat ice cream to have with it. In a pinch, you can buy frozen fruit to use for dessert as well.
  • Peanut butter cookies. If you have a little flexibility in your diet, then peanut butter cookies might be a good way to go! While they do have more fat in them than other options on this list, they make up for it by having a decent amount of protein per cookie. Having one peanut butter cookie is a great way to satisfy your cravings while not going on a full-blown cheat day.
