When people go on a diet, dessert is usually first thing to get the cut. However, with these easy, quick and healthy dessert recipes, you can have your cake and eat it too—even while on a diet.
With fruit as the centerpiece to most of these recipes, the dessert ideas involve only three ingredients or less. Perfect for busy schedules, these sweet treats take very little prep time—most are under 10 minutes. The recipes are also very versatile—simply make substitutions with your preferred fruit, nut or dairy product where indicated.
1. Cherries with Ricotta and Toasted Almonds
3/4 cups frozen pitted cherries
2 tablespoons part skim ricotta
1 TBS. toasted slivered almonds
Heat the cherries in the microwave for one to two minutes, or on the stovetop without adding oil until warm. Spoon ricotta over the warmed cherries and sprinkle almond slivers over the top.
Not a fan of ricotta? Substitute another smooth, low-fat dairy product, like reduced-fat mascarpone or Greek yogurt. Lactose-intolerant? Use non-dairy substitutes like soy yogurt. Almonds can be swapped for any other chopped, toasted nut, like walnuts, pecans or hazelnuts.
2. Chocolate-Coconut Bananas
