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.
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
Gather your ingredients. This tasty dessert only requires two — raspberries and chocolate chips. Wash the raspberries and let them dry before you stuff them.
Gently place a chocolate chip in each raspberry with the pointed side going into the raspberry. Place in serving cups and enjoy!
