At your next get-together with friends or family, allow yourself to indulge in dessert! Without hampering your weight loss journey, you can whip up a decadent treat for you and your guests using low-calorie and healthy diet recipes that include better ingredients and fresh fruit. Here are four desserts from Jenny Craig that will be perfect for your next celebration.
At just 175 calories per serving, this warm dessert takes minimal effort and just 10 minutes to put together. Raspberries and apples are a sweet, tangy contrast to the crunchy, cinnamon oat topping. Serve in individual ramekins to your guests.
Strawberry Banana Splits
Need a dessert recipe for a hot summer night with friends on your patio? Try these strawberry banana splits. Low-fat yogurt, bananas, strawberries, and sugar-free strawberry gelatin keep this dessert low calorie at about 100 calories per serving. Be sure to start this dessert a few hours before your guests arrive, so the gelatin has time to set before assembling this treat.
Fudgey Brownie Cut-outs
Kids and adults will love these decadent brownie bites. The recipe uses applesauce and egg whites, instead of butter and eggs, to make a guilt-free chocolate dessert to satisfy any craving. A serving is under 100 calories and low-fat! Make these brownies more festive by using small cookie cutters to create fun shapes for kids.
Country Peach Tart
When the peaches are prime in the summertime, head to your local farmer’s market to pick up some fresh peaches and whip up this tart for your next dinner party. This recipe calls for just six ingredients and has only 160 calories per serving. Prepare the peach tart right before your guests arrive, and then bake it while you are enjoying dinner for a warm, summery treat that your guests will rave about for weeks to come.
