These diet desserts are the only way I can keep my sweet tooth under control without totally wrecking my diet. These aren’t your bland or flavor-lacking diet desserts; these are tasty, decadent confections that will satisfy your desire for a sweet treat. Try a few of these diet desserts and let me know what you think.
1 Vegan Banana Peanut Butter Ice Cream
When it comes to diet desserts this one totally wins me over. Ice cream is my diet’s Kryptonite. It gets me every time. No matter how full I feel, I always have room for ice cream. Unfortunately it is loaded with fat and the sugar free or fat free versions don’t usually have the taste I’m looking for. You can do amazing things with frozen bananas and peanut butter though!
1 Tbsp Creamy Peanut Butter
(That’s it! How simple!)
Peel your bananas and slice them into disks.
Spread the slices out on a wax paper covered plate and pop them in the freezer for 2 hours.
Blend the frozen banana slices and peanut butter in a food processor or blender until the mixture is creamy.
You can eat it as is or pop it back into the freezer until it’s the consistency you would like.
2 Honey Baked Pears
You can make this warm and tasty treat with canned pears if you’d like, but fresh is best! The pears themselves are sweet and the drizzle of honey and sprinkle of cinnamon make them absolutely perfect. Baked to perfection, this healthy yet flavorful dessert will satisfy your taste buds and your tummy!
2 Fresh Pears (or 1 full can of pears)
½ Tbsp Honey
Sprinkle of cinnamon (optional)
Cut your pears in half lengthwise and lay them skin side down in a small baking dish.
Drizzle the honey over the pear halves, allowing it to pool slightly on the fruit.
Sprinkle cinnamon over the honey.
Bake in an oven preheated to 375 degrees for 20-25 minutes.
3 Indoor S’mores
I know S’mores aren’t a healthy snack, but they are my absolute favorite dessert in the whole world, so I simply cannot do without them. I have, however, changed my ingredients to make it a more acceptable indulgence. While my substitutions leave the calorie count nearly identical (125.4 vs 125.7), the fact that it cuts the fat from 4g to 2.8g makes it worth it to me. You can make this even lower by switching to sugar free chocolate or even a different brand, but I’m happy with the way mine turn out. I don’t eat them every day, but when I have a craving for them, I do allow myself to nibble on one.
2 Squares (1 Rectangle) Honey Maid Low Fat Graham Crackers
2 Pieces Hershey’s Special Dark Chocolate Bar
1 Jet Puffed Marshmallow (regular size)
On a microwave safe plate, place one cracker square, top it with the chocolate and the marshmallow.
Microwave for 30 seconds.
Top with the other cracker square and enjoy your sweet melty treat!
4 Lemon Cake
This recipe only has 3 ingredients, so it was love at first sight for me! Technically it contains more ingredients than that because one of the items is “cake mix,” but still, it takes barely any time at all to prepare and that’s one thing I love about this cake. The second is the burst of fresh lemony flavor you get when you take a bite! Try this one out, it’s a definite crowd pleaser!
1 box (18.25 oz.) Lemon Cake Mix (Just the powder, don’t add eggs or anything)
1 can (20 oz.) crushed pineapple in 100% pineapple juice
¾ cup Lemon non-fat Greek Yogurt
Preheat oven to 350 degrees and spray or line a 9x13” pan.
In a large mixing bowl, combine all of your ingredients, making sure they are completely blended. The batter will be pretty thick, don’t worry it’s alright.
Pour the batter into your pan and slide it into the oven for 35-40 minutes.
Let it cool completely before you cut it and just be aware that it won’t be “cake” consistency, it’s very moist and sticky but it is SO good!
5 Diet Coke Brownies
If you thought the last recipe was easy, just wait! These surprisingly delicious brownies only call for TWO ingredients! Brownie mix and a can of Diet Coke. This sounded bizarre to me the first time I ever heard of it, but having tried it out I can tell you it tastes incredibly delicious. Not only is it chocolaty yumminess, but it cuts out the eggs and oil you would normally have to add to brownie mix!
1 Box family size Low-Fat brownie mix (I used Betty Crocker)
1 Can of Diet Coke
Empty your brownie mix into a bowl and pour the can of soda on top, allow the foam to settle and stir it up thoroughly.
Pour your brownie batter into your lightly greased 9x13” pan and put it in your preheated 350 degree oven.
If you cut them into 24 even pieces, they are only a ½ gram of fat each and 105 calories!
6 Pineapple Sorbet
If 2 ingredients are still too much, try this extremely simple sorbet. All you need is a can of pineapple, a freezer and a blender! This is such a satisfying treat when it’s hot out but you don’t want to wreck your healthy eating habits by digging into the ice cream. It cools you off and tastes phenomenal!
1 20oz Can of Pineapple Chunks (packed in their own juice)
Pour the entire can of pineapple into a freezer bag and leave it in the freezer for several hours (or overnight).
Tap it against the counter to break the solid ice block into pieces.
Toss them into your blender and blend until the fruit is smooth and creamy.
7 Easy Cobbler
Here’s another diet soda recipe that’s really yummy. You can use any berries (or even peaches) to make whatever type of fruit cobbler you desire! I love to keep things simple and this one is definitely very easy to make. Once you try this, you’ll wonder why you haven’t been baking with soda all along!
2 12oz Bags of Frozen Fruit
1 Box White Cake Mix (Just the powder)
1 to 1 ½ Cans of 7Up or Sprite
Spread the frozen fruit out in a 9x13” baking dish.
Sprinkle the cake mix over the top, covering all of the berries as evenly as you can.
Pour the soda over the top, making sure that all of the cake mix is moistened, but DO NOT STIR.
Bake in a preheated 350 degree oven for 45-50 minutes or until berries are fully cooked.
You will love this simple cobbler!
When I make my own “healthier” desserts I try to keep one major thing in mind…I try not to add any white sugar to things (there are exceptions, of course). Using the natural sugar in fruit is a great way to keep your sweet tooth satisfied without going overboard. What are your favorite delicious diet desserts?
