Mouth-watering, tempting, and tantalizing, desserts have always been my favorite to the extent that, I often wondered why couldn't they be served before the main course. Well, to many, this would be wishful thinking and most would be happy to have it, just once a day.
For the calorie conscious people, desserts are a representation of the sins they might just indulge themselves in. Well, for those who are really fretting about their hourglass figures (or trying to come closer to it), here is a compilation of some healthy recipes, which can satiate your taste buds without making your weighing scale leap on the higher side.

Fruit Smoothie

  • Skim Milk, 1 cup
  • Frozen Fruit, ½ cup
  • Low Fat Yogurt, ½ cup (any flavor)
You will need to add all the ingredients in the blender. Mix them well. Once it attains a smooth texture and consistency, serve it in a tall and chilled glass.

Chocolate Walnut Brownie

  • Unsweetened Chocolate, 100 gm.
  • Flour, 1 cup
  • Walnuts, ½ cup
  • Soy Margarine, 1 cup
  • Maple Sugar, 1 cup
  • Eggs, 4
  • Vanilla Extract, 1 tbsp.
  • Salt, ½ tsp.
Firstly, you need to preheat the oven to 325° F. Then, you will need to melt the chocolate and the margarine on low heat and then let them cool down. Meanwhile, mix the sugar, eggs, and vanilla. Whisk this mixture till it turns frothy. Now, add this to the chocolate mixture.
Once done, add the walnuts, salt, and flour. Mix them well. Place this mixture in a lightly greased pan. Bake this preparation for at least 25 to 30 minutes. Once the brownie turns dark brown in color take it out of the oven and check the texture by inserting a toothpick in it. If it comes out dry then the brownie is ready. Serve it hot or warm.

Blueberry Cheesecake

For the Crust:
  • Low-fat Graham Cracker Crumbs, 1 cup
  • Light Margarine, ¼ cup (softened)
  • Granulated Sugar, 3 tbsp.
For the Filling:
  • Fat-free Cream Cheese, 16 oz. (softened)
  • Granulated Sugar, ½ cup
  • Pure Vanilla Extract, ½ tsp.
  • Whole Egg Whites, 2
  • Blueberry Pie Filling, ⅔ cup
Mix the crumbs, sugar, and margarine in a mixing bowl. Press this mixture in a pie pan that should be around 9". Let this chill for an hour or wait till it becomes firm. An even better option would be to bake this in the oven at 375° F for around ten minutes. Take it out after the edges turn brown. Let it cool before you use it as a filling.
Now, preheat the oven to 375° F. Combine the vanilla extract, cream cheese, sugar, and egg whites so that you can prepare the filling. Spread this over the crust. Now, spoon the blueberry filling on top. Cut through both layers with the help of a knife. Doing this a couple of times will give you the swirled effect. Bake this preparation for about 40 minutes. Serve this with the remaining blueberry pie filling.

Peach Float

  • Vanilla Ice Milk, 4 cups
  • Club Soda, 32 oz.
  • Reduced-fat Whipped Topping, ½ cup
  • Ground Nutmeg
  • Peaches, 15 oz. (drained, except for ½ cup juice)
Firstly, you need to mash the peaches with a fork in a small bowl. Divide the mashed peaches into 4 glasses. Add the peach juice and milk. Pour soda into the glasses. Use the whipped cream as a topping and add a dusting of nutmeg to this.
