Tips To Let You Have Your Cake And Eat It Too

Are you in the mood for the most delicious, easiest, healthiest dessert ever? Try fresh raspberries stuffed with dark and white chocolate chips. Instead of binging on unhealthy, sugar-filled store-bought desserts, I recommend this simple treat. Sometimes I make these in advance and bring them to the movie theater or to work. The chocolate complements the raspberry perfectly, so you do not feel deprived.

Skinny dessert tips

Choose desserts with nutrients

If you're going to have your cake and eat it too, why not add some benefits? Adding fruit to your desserts will provide extra nutrients. Raspberries contain fiber and antioxidants; add a little chocolate and you're good!

Have a taste

OK, you ate way too much at dinner. But you're craving dessert... so have a few bites and be done with it. Balance out your diet. If you know you're having full-on dessert, have a lighter meal (think a salad with protein, a sweet potato with Greek yogurt, or a veggie-filled soup).

Keep it simple

Instead of ordering the chocolate pie with three ice cream scoops, make smarter choices. At restaurants, try to modify. Some of my favorite modifications: berries with house-made whipped cream, a chocolate soufflé with no sauce or berry cobbler with light crust.

Share

So you're absolutely dying for the apple pie with extra ice cream. Go for it. Just split it with a few friends. Have a few bites and indulge a bit. Tomorrow's a new day where, hopefully, you'll drink lots of water, spend some time at the gym, and/or eat extra veggies.

How to make chocolate-stuffed raspberries

Step one

Gather your ingredients. This tasty dessert only requires two — raspberries and chocolate chips. Wash the raspberries and let them dry before you stuff them.

Go to allrecipesand go to iniredgent searchthen put in some of the iniredgents you want to have in it and search you can also tell it what you don't want in it, so if you don't want chocolate you put cocoa and chocolate in the not sideClick on ratings at the top of the list to get it to list the desserts in order of the top rated desserts first. Then start clicking on recipes that sound interesting to you.Read the reviews to see if others thought the desserts you are looking at were too sweet.Hope this helps. I could suggest a bunch of recipes, but without more information about what you like, if you want a fruit dessert or chocolate, if you like cake or are looking for something quick and easy or something impressive you get it, it's hard to know exactly what might please you.
