Eating is a way of life, and desserts are no different on that matter. However, often times, desserts are much more fattening/unhealthy than we would like, and people want healthier options that still taste amazing. Whether you are on a diet, or you just want desserts that are better for your health, there are plenty out there that are low calorie, while remaining delicious. With that said, here are the best low calorie desserts you need to try as soon as possible!
Chocolate Mousse Filled Strawberries – 70 Calories Each
These absolutely delicious strawberries takes the top of our list, and for very good reason! Chocolate covered strawberries are one of the most famous desserts on the planet, as the blend of the chocolate with the strawberry is almost untouchable.
This little twist on the regular chocolate filled strawberries makes it not only a healthier variety of the dessert, but a tastier one as well. As a bonus, these desserts are dairy free!
All you need are some coconut milk, cocoa powder, vanilla extract, sweetener, salt, strawberries, and almonds. You can replace the almonds with any nut of your choice really, but almonds are the most popular nut used for this dessert.
After cutting open the strawberries (only halfway) and stuffing them with the chocolate mousse, use the almonds as a topping, to complete the dessert. Remember to keep them refrigerated until you are ready to eat them (as you want the chocolate to remain cold).
And now you are ready to feast on your scrumptious dessert without feeling guilty about any health drawbacks!
