    Some low fat desserts. Google

    English summer pudding Sophie Grigson
    Creme caramel
    Chocolate sorbet
    Banana and mango ice cream Donna Hay

    You can use a sugar substitute that can withstand heating in the custard body of the summer pudding, but not the caramel topping. You can't substitute sugar in the chocolate sorbet because the sugar is what chemically prevents the sorbet from freezing solid.

    By healthy, do you mean low-calorie? Low added sugar? More fruit and nuts? More or less of a certain macro?

    This was originally a side dish my husband made for dinner, but I eat it as a dessert sometimes as it is on the sweeter side.

    Use a cheese grater to grate a bunch of sweet potato. Heat some coconut oil in a skillet until it is melted. Then add the sweet potato and cook it until it is tender, stirring occasionally. Then add cinnamon to taste (I add a lot as I really like cinnamon).

    I make cookies every week (for others...I don't eat them all myself!). I don't modify recipes in any way except to make smaller cookies. Using a 1 tbsp or 1.5 tbsp scoop, depending on the cookie, most cookies wind up about 100 calories each. If they're not chocolate, they usually end up in the 80 calorie range.

    This week is double chocolate chip. The butter is browning as we speak.

    Google avocado brownies! I'll be trying them because they look so good and are good for you!
